In Elizabethan poetry and Its development

of the latest publications. The work la
published by Doubleday, Page AV Co. In
two large and handsome volumes, contatn
. lng 800 pages, and profusely Illustrated
with portralta. facsimiles, title pages and
11 aorta of Interesting pictorial matter
that help to give the reader the fee'lng
and color of those ancient times. The
author's aim here Is to present Shakspero
aa the crowning glory and culmination of
the moat marvelous literary effloreaence tho
world haa known. In order to do this ade
quately ha glvea first a most suggestive
survey of the beginnings of English poetry
and what It had become when the marvel
ous uiixaDetnan Age carried It to un
dreamed of helghta. and then, after elab
orate treatment of the aonnet wrltera from
Surrey to Shakapere, he takea up In detail
the study of the man, William Shakspere,
the social Ufa which surrounded him. and
his mental and spiritual evolution aa shown
by the growth of hla art. From the exist
ing evidence and the "relation of man to
hla fellow man" In the varloua plays Mr.
Lanier constructs a probable sequence and
grouping of the great master's -work which
bears largely upon Its face the story of the
man's own Ufa struggle and mighty con
quest of himself. Much of the best prose
work Mr. Lanier left Is contained In these
The remarkable record made thla last
season by Scrlbner booka la still further
attested by the market reports In the Feb
ruary Bookman, which show that, of the
fifteen extremely successful bocks In the
east in December, five had the Scrlbner
Imprint, while six Scribner books sppear
In ths list of seventeen which were most
successful in the west. No other one pub
Usher had more than two books In this
eastern list, nor more than three In the
western list. The Scrlbner books appearing
In both esatern and western lists were
Henry van Dyke's "The Blue Flower," F.
Hopklnson Smith's "The Fortunes of Oliver
Horn," Thomss Nelson Page's "A Captured
Santa Claus," James W. Barrle'a "The Lit
tls Whits Bird" and Richard Harding Da
rts'a "Captain Macklln." The additional
book making the western list was James
Whltcomb Rtlev's "The Book of Jovoua
Children." "The Blue Flower," by the way,
stood aecond la the eastern list and third
in ths western Hat.
"Ths Papal Monarchy," by William Barry.
D. D., belongs to the aeriea called "The
Story of Nationa" and covers the period
from St. Gregory ths Great to Bonlfacs
VIII. Dr. Barry's survey of the papal
monarchy to the death of Boniface VIII
with which ths middle ages may be said
to closs, fills so serious a gap In English
historical libraries that students might be
very grateful to him even 'were ths work
much less able than It Is. But he has given
us a marvel of accurate Information and
of comprehensiveness. No mere compila
tion la it, but a well-considered and ad'
mlrably written book of permanent value,
Its readers and critics, however, would do
well to keep In mind ths author's words
In ths preface: "Not ths pops as a teacher,
but ths pops as a ruler of men. In affairs
which may be viewed under a secular
well as a religious aspect, will furnish
the matter of my volume." Of course. It Is
open to doubt whether ths effort to keep
to thla restricted plan Is not an attempt
at ths Impossible. But the book as It
standa Is a tour de force. Ha compresses
ths history of a vsst period Into about 4S0
' pagea, and deala with It not In general
terma, but in detail; yet the reault la no
arid waste of facta. He has enlivened tho
waste by vivid portraiture and by dramatic
arrangement. Published by O. P. Putnam's
Another notable addition has been made
to tho attractive aeries of posters taaued
by- D. Appleton and Company since the be
ginning of ths year. This Is being used In
connection with "Millionaire Households
and their Domestic. Economy," by Mary E.
Carter. Ths poster la an elaboration of
ths cover design by .Margaret Armstrong,
and la printed In' gold snd copper bronie I
and green and peacock-blue inks, giving a I
rich effect. The design Itself represents
two golden peacocka facing each o'.her on
ths branches of a grape vine, while their
beautiful plumage falls around ths title
"Millionaire Households." Bunches of
grapes and grape leavea complete the or
namentation. The book Itself Is unique.
Miss Carter has managed the households
of many large eatsbliahmenta, and her ob
servations will bs of value not only to
those whose advancing fortunes have out
stripped their social opportunities, but also
to thosa who with ons or two servants
desire to make a little go a long, way.
"Ths Winning of Sarenne," by St. Clair
Beall, la a romance full of Interest from
cover to cover. Well written and clsver,
- the story haa much that many of the popu
lar romantic novels of lata have lacked
Ths story tells how a young nobis won
back . his city which bad been usurped
by a friend of hia father'a. It Is full of
