SOME PRESS OPINIONS OF THE MAY NUMBER.

“The May number of THE STUDIO is
particularly strong in illustration of the work
of promising artists. The magazine more
than keeps up the reputation for artistic
worth which it has so soundly established.”
The Globe.

“The magazine is beautifully printed and
profusely illustrated…. We cannot fail to
appreciate the high technical skill so suc-
cessfully devoted to its production.”
Birmingham Gazette.

“This beautifully printed and illustrated
monthly is deserving of the immense popu-
larity it is fast achieving.”
Nuneaton Observer.

“THE STUDIO is one of the finest publi-
cations of the kind and should be in the
hands of all lovers of art.”
Belfast News Letter.

“It is really true that we have no maga-
zine in America which equals this in its
illustrations. We feel like recommending
this magazine most highly to all who love
artistic book-making, who enjoy really de-
licious illustrating, or who are interested in
art subjects.” Hartford Post, Conn., U.S.A.

“Those who want a fine art review
cannot do better than subscribe to THE
STUDIO, which is uniformly excellent.”
Freeman’s Journal.

“THE STUDIO for May is so full of good
things that one hardly knows how to begin
the enumeration of them and is equally in a
difficulty as to where to stop.”
Grantham Journal.

“Particulierement interessant est le der
nier numero de cette tres vivante revue.”
La Chronique des Arts.

“All students of art must welcome THE
STUDIO. The variety, interest, and useful
ness of its articles, combined with the beauty
of its illustrations renders it a bright addi-
tion to one’s artistic literature.”
Northern Chronicle.

“It is full of admirable illustrations, it is
well printed, and altogether it well serves
the object of its existence. And that exist
ence, it is obvious, is to be happily an
extended and healthy one.”
Essex Telegraph.

CHAPMAN & HALL’S NEW BOOKS.

LORD EDWARD FITZGERALD: AN HISTORICAL ROMANCE.
By M. McD. BODKIN, Q.C. With 24 full-page Illustrations by LEONARD LINSDELL.
Crown 8vo, 6s.
History supplies the most romantic part of this historical romance. The main incidents of
Lord Edward Fitzgerald s marvellous career, as herein set down, his stirring adventures in
the American War of Independence, even his adoption into the Indian tribe of the “Great
Bear,” are absolutely true. For the rest, though some liberties have been taken with dates,
the pictures of Ireland’s condition under the ” Penal Laws” are painted from life.

THE SALTONSTALL GAZETTE. Conducted by PETER SALTONSTALL,
Esq., and written by various writers. By ELLA FULLER MAITLAND, Author of “Pages
from the Day-Book of Bethia Hardacre.” Crown 8vo, 7s. 6d.
The previous work of this charming writer (“Pages from the Day-Book of Bethia Hard-
acre”) in the course of a few months ran through four large editions. It was a book full of a
delicate literary aroma, witty, humorous, and genial. The present book is written on something
of the same lines, and has a very pleasant personal element, and even a wider scope of genial
observation and reflection.

PAGES FROM THE DAY-BOOK OF BETHIA HARDACRE. By
ELLA FULLER MAITLAND. Fourth Edition. Crown 8vo, 5s.
The Times says: “Bertha Hardacre is strikingly original…. It mirrors the mind of
the cultured woman with a pure and sensitive poetical taste.”
The Globe says : “A work of individuality and charm, and on no account to be missed by
the judicious student of contemporary literature.”

NAPOLEON. By T. P. O CONNOR, M.P. Large crown Svo, 7s. 6d.
Mr. O’Connor has employed his well-known method of analysis and personal appreciation
in dealing with the character of Napoleon Bonaparte. He takes the Conqueror, Statesman,
and Emperor chiefly in his social and domestic aspects, and regards him from the several points
of view of friends, critics, and enemies, weighing all the evidence, and balancing each separate
judgment with critical tolerance. The result is such a living and harmonious portrait of the
great Corsican as has never been presented before in the pages of a single book.

WHEN WILLIAM IV. WAS KING. By JOHN ASHTON. With
numerous Illustrations. Demy Svo, 12s.
Mr. Ashton has, in previous works, done a great deal to illustrate the social life of bygone
periods of history, and his “Hyde Park from Domesday Book to Date,” and his “Social
England under the Regency,” are all household and popular books. The present volume is
enriched with numerous illustrations dealing with the manners, fashions, customs, and
characters of the reign of William IV.

LYRICAL VERSE FROM ELIZABETH TO VICTORIA. Edited by
OSWALD CRAWFURD. With Copious Notes, Index of Writers, and Index of First
