in the text by C. J. Staniland, R.I.

From Mr. George Allen comes Wonders in
Monster Land (6s.), a highly diverting story some-
what on the lines of Alice in Wonderland, capitally
told by E. D. Cumming, and admirably illustrated
by that master-draughtsman of eccentric animal
life, Mr. J. A. Shepherd, whose contributions are
in his best style.

As usual, Messrs. Dean & Sons, Ltd., have issued
a varied assortment of bright and entertaining
books for children, at popular prices. Notable
amongst them are Soldiers of the Century, Sailors
of the Century, and The Great Powers of the World,

Australian scenes; Rulers of the Sea; Jingles, 'a

by Ingles Rhode ; Bon Bon's A. B. C., illus-
trated in colours and pen and ink; The Practical
Painting Bock No. i, and The Practical Painting
Book No. 2, by A. L. Forrest, who has supplied
coloured drawings as well as outline sketches all

hand upon; The Express, with all kinds of illus-
trations interesting to the mechanically - minded

and Minnie Farlow, pictured by M. Waterson
and VV. H. Borrow; and. Nursery Tale L^and, by

M. Holiday and C. Forrest, with illustrations by

N. Westrup and A. S. Forrest. Perhaps the most
popular of all Messrs. Dean’s series will be The
Paint Box, Painting Book and Palette, which con-
tains, in addition to a large number of outline
drawings for colouring, a glazed cardboard palette
and a metal paint-box with paint-brushes and twelve
•different paints. This must certainly be considered
cheap for the low price of one shilling, and it
•deserves to be popular with the numerous embryo
artists to be found amongst the ranks of the

Mr. Nicholson’s character-study of the late Presi-
dent of the United States now belongs, unhappily,
to the drama of a tragic act in history. It may
lack some of that easy and decorative breadth
which we are accustomed to look for in Mr.
Nicholson’s original prints; but if the hands are
weak, or fidgety in treatment, the face has the
right significance, being full of that inner weight
of care which the ill-starred President felt always
under the burden of his high office.
