12mo, cloth, $1.50.

The Garden's Story;


With Head and Tail Pieces by Rhead. 12mo, cloth, gilt top, flexible boards, $1.50.

The History of a Slave.

Author of The Kilimanjaro Expedition," etc.

With 47 full-page illustrations, engraved fac-simile from the author's drawings. 12mo, paper cover,

50 cents.

"The volume has a distinct value to serious students of African life and manners. It is the story of a slave told by himself, a man born somewhere about the Niger region half a century ago, who has gone through many vicissitudes since. The poor fellow tells his story in a simple, natural style, and Mr. Johnston has been very successful in keeping up the delusion. . . . Altogether, the book is well worth reading."-London Times.

Won by Waiting.



Author of We Two," "Donovan," etc.

A new cheap edition. "Appletons' Town and Country Library." 12mo, paper cover, 50 cents. Uniform with cheap editions of Donovan" and "We Two.'

American Educational Catalogue

For 1889 [Twentieth Year].

THE AMERICAN EDUCATIONAL CATALOGUE, whose value to the trade is proved by
the fact that it is now in its twentieth year, claims to be the best practical aid to the
dealer in or buyer of school-books.

With its alphabetical arrangement by authors, its separate class-index, carefully
sub-classified to an extent not followed by any other catalogue, its completeness and
accuracy, it is presented as the best finding-list, the most convenient order-list, and the
most satisfactory class-catalogue for school use.

The catalogue has recently been remade, to omit books which have dropped out
of use and to include all live books, and it adds all new books (ready or to be ready
for the fall) in their proper alphabetical place.

The page giving the key to publishers will not be given in imprint editions unless
specially ordered. The Telegraphic Code will not be continued, as the code plan is
reported to us to give more trouble than it saves.

This Catalogue is specially planned to be of service for circulation by retailers
among schools and private buyers. The imprint edition possesses not only temporary
value, but will serve its purpose during the whole year. No imprint edition of less than
100 copies can be supplied. Orders for editions should be sent to us at once.


With sole imprint of ordering firm, and stitched, per 100 copies, $5.00;
per 1000, $40.00.

There is no extra charge for printing name, business card, etc., on the imprint
page; the last page is left blank at the disposal of the dealer, but any copy for that
page, advertising special lines or general business, will be set up and printed thereon.
for $5.00, or $1.00 if plate is sent.

P. O. Box 943.

***Copy for imprint and shipping directions should accompany the order.

The regular Educational Number of "THE PUBLISHERS' WEEKLY" will be supplied
at 25 cents per copy, or five for $1.00, postpaid.

delphia, have just issued "The King's Daughter's
Diary," a charmingly arranged daily journal,
with some helpful and suggestive thought at the

head of each page, selected and compiled by Ade-
line B. Avery and Julie E. French. It has lib-
eral spaces for each day, and is bound in royal
purple, with decorative designs in silver.

D. APPLETON & Co. will have ready next
week "Days Out of Doors," by Charles C. Ab-
bott, a companion volume to his "A Naturalist's
Rambles About Home ;"" The Garden's Story,"
by George H. Ellwanger, relating the pleasures
and trials of an amateur gardener, illustrated
with head and tail pieces by Rhead; "The His-
tory of a Slave," by H. M. Johnston, author of
the" Kilimanjaro Expedition;" and a new cheap
edition in the Town and Country Library of Edna
Lyall's "Won By Waiting" will be added to the
paper editions of "Donovan," and "We Two."

New York, and John Murphy & Co., of Baltimore,
have just ready "A Manual of Prayers for the
Use of the Catholic Laity," the new prayer-book
prepared and published by order of the Third
Plenary Council of Baltimore, held three years
ago. To insure correctness as far as possible,
proof sheets of this book have been sent to every
archbishop and bishop in the United States for
corrections and suggestions. It has been thor-
oughly read and revised, and all the prayers in
it are in accordance with the Catholic Ritual.

D. C. HEATH & Co. will publish July 20 "An
Introduction to the Study of Shakespeare," by
Hiram Corson, Prof. of English Literature, Cor-
nell University. It will be an attempt to indicate
to the student some lines of Shakespearian study
which may serve to introduce him to the study
of the Plays as plays. The commentaries pre-
sented on Romeo and Juliet, King John, Much
Ado About Nothing, Hamlet, Macbeth, and An-
tony and Cleopatra, aim chiefly to present the
points of view which are demanded for a proper
appreciation of Shakespeare's general attitude
toward things, and his resultant dramatic art.
An attempt is made to show the moral spirit with
which he worked, as distinguished from a moral-
izing spirit.

(Harper's Franklin sq. lib., new ser. no. 649.) pap., 25 c.

This history is supposed to have been written by Harmachis many centuries ago. The papyrus rolls upon which he wrote were taken from his tomb by an enterprising Egyptologist, who deciphered the hieroglyphics. Harmachis is a claimant of the throne of Egypt. He believes Cleopatra an usurper and that it is his mission to destroy her, and restore Egypt to his ancient line. His plot is ripe, and his opportunity to stab her at hand, when he falls a victim to her wiles, and forgets his oaths. He tells of his agony and shame, how she sets him aside Charmion plays for Antony, and his ultimate revenge.
