CONTENTS :-A Wedding Story-A Stupid Story—A Scotch Story
"Lady Barker is endowed with a rare and delicate gift for narrating stories, she has the faculty of throwing even into her printed narrative a soft and pleasant tone, which goes far to make the reader think the subject or the matter immaterial, so long as the author will go on telling stories for his benefit."—ATHENÆUM. STORIES ABOUT:- With Six Illustrations. Third Edition. Extra fcap. 8vo. 4s. 6d.

A CHRISTMAS CAKE IN FOUR QUARTERS. With Illustra-
SYBIL'S BOOK. Illustrated by S. E. WALLER. Second Edition. Globe 8vo. gilt. 4s. 6d.
"Another of Lady Barker's delightful stories, and one of the most thoroughly original books for girls that has been written for many years. Grown-up readers will like it quite as much as young people, and will even better understand the rarity of such simple, natural, and unaffected writing. That no one can read the story without interest is not its highest praise, for no one ought to be able to lay it down without being the better girl or boy, or man or woman, for the reading of it. Lady Barker has never turned her fertile and fascinating pen to better account, and for the sake of all readers we wish Sybil's Book's a wide success. "TIMES.

A PRINCESS OF THULE.
Three vols. Sixth and cheaper
The SATURDAY REVIEW says :-"A novel which is both romantic and natural, which has much feeling, without any touch of mawkishness, which goes deep into character without any suggestion of painful analysis—this is a rare gem to find amongst the debris of current literature, and this, or nearly this, Mr. Black has given us in the 'Princess of Thule. "It has, for one thing, the great charm of novelty.. There is a picturesqueness in all that Mr. Black writes, but scarcely even in the Adventures of a Phaeton' are there the freshness and sweetness and perfect sense of natural beauty we find in this last book."-PALL MALL GAZETTE.
