This series of volumes aims to present a comprehensive account of English literature according to a new plan. Instead of the usual division of the field into chronological periods, a division according to types has been adopted, thus securing for the first time a unity in the treatment of the nise ard deck ment of all the important literary forms in English. Many neglected aspects of literary history will receive attention, and many new starting points for criticism and research will be suggested. Each volume has been intrusted to an acktos. ledged specialist in the particular field.


By Professor Francis B. GUMMERE of Haverford

College. The book contains citations from nearly three hundred ballads, and is furnished with biographical notes, index, and a prefatory note.

“ A particular merit of the volume, which distinguishes it from any previous treatment of the subject, is the clearness with which the difference is brought out between choral and epic elements. Never before have the workings of tradition been set forth so well. The point is vital, and to have it settled once for all, is comfort and enlightenment unspeakable. For my own part, and I say it very deliberately, I never expected to see so good a book in its kind, and I am confident that the subject will never be treated so well again in my lifetime." -- Professor George LYMAN KITTREDGB, in the Atlantic Monthly

$1.50 net. Postage 12 cents. THE LITERATURE OF ROGUERY

By Professor F. W. CHANDLER, Brooklyn Poly. technic Institute.

Professor Chandler's work is so filled with important material that it may be profitably returned to again and again." - Boston Transcript.

"A world of information is furnished by this almost encyclopedic work of Professor Chandler, which is really a signal contribution to research literature." - - Chicago Tribune.

2 vols., $3.00 net. Postage 20 cents. TRAGEDY

By Professor A. H. THORNDIKE of Columbia Uni

versity. A fresh, authoritative, and eloquently written account of tragedy during the Shakespearean period, and the first coherent narrative of the fortunes of tragedy in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.

" Its judicious plan is to give a volume or more to rach clearly defined literary genre, instead of assigning, as has been the practice in many large works of the kind, a period' to each writer. Both methods have their advantages and their disadvantages; almost any great collection of facis can be ciassified in various ways for different purposes. Certainly the development of a particular literary type can be studied more satisfactorily by isolating it from irrelevant facts, and the full story of the literary activity of a century is confusing, no mai. ter how clearly it is presented." -- Springfield Republicar,

"The series is sure to be a useful one." — Brooklyn Eagle. .: An important series of books, which, when completed, will give a comprehensive history of English Literature iron a new point of view." - Hartford Courant.

“The series classifies literary products along vertical instead of horizontal lines. Type and not chronology is made the basis of classification. Periods are subordinated to structural form, each monograph by an authority on his assigned subject being limited to the characteristics, tendencies, and influer.ce of a single formal type, and in gathering within the compass of a single, well digested, and carefully developed volume of all the details, biographical, bibliographical, historical, and critical, of the literary form under consideration."

TREES AND SHRUBS This work consists of a series of plates, accompanied by brief descriptions of new or

a little known trees and shrubs.

The plates are reproductions of original drawings made by Mr. C. E. Faxon, the most skillful and experienced botanical draftsman in America.

“ To those who know the excellent quality of Professor Sargent's “Silva of North America,” and who have followed his later contributions, no commendation of the present treatise is necessary. In all respects the continuation of his great work is on the high level of what has gone before." Nation, N. .

“ An admirable supplement to ‘Silva of North America.'” - New York Tribune.
