320 pages, Crown 8vo, tastefully bound in cloth boards, 3/6 net.

By the Rev. A. N. COOPER, M.A., Vicar of Filey, Yorks. Stories of Yorkshire Life. New Edition. With 8 full-page Photo-Illustrations. 320 pages, Cr. 8vo, sewn in attractive cover. 1/- net.

This interesting volume will be found particularly suitable for holiday reading, and should commend itself to all lovers of East Yorkshire. A vein of humour runs through all the stories, making them fascinating and amusing.

The British Weekly.- "Round the Home of a Yorkshire Parson" is really a fine, manly book, frank, cheerful, and by no means without literary power. Yorkshire people and the multitudes who love Yorkshire, with good reason, will like it, and they will have no hesitation in pronouncing the author emphatically a good fellow."

328 pages, Crown 8vo, tastefully bound in Art Vellum Boards, 3/6 net.

In his Preface the Author says:-The Broad Acres of Yorkshire have been productive of many useful men, strenuous men, and men of shrewd, sound common sense. This will account for the practical, but I trust none the less interesting nature of much that is contained in this book. My life has been mainly passed between the Waves and the Wolds, and it is best for all, except those who possess the gift of imagination, to write about what they know.

The Scotsman." Highly entertaining and pleasantly blended with learning and culture. Altogether a delightful book.”

ANDREW MARVEL AND HIS FRIENDS.

A Story of the Siege of Hull.

By MARIE HALL.

Ninth Edition, containing 485 pages, Crown 8vo, in a characteristic binding, specially designed by J. Walter West, 3/6.

From no book hitherto written can the reader gather a more vivid or accurate conception of events which characterised the two Sieges of Hull than he will derive from this volume. Not less striking and faithful are the Author's pictures of the English Court as it existed both during the Protectorate and the reign of Charles the Second. It is hitherto the only piece of historical fiction, the chief scenes of which lie in Kingston-uponHull. Hull, indeed, with its stirring history and its wealth of ancient tradition, its unbroken line of princely merchants, stretching from the time ot the De la Poles, to that of Lister and Raikes and Thornton and Wilberforce, afforded a new quarry upon which Mrs. Hall seized, and she has told her story well.

"

The Daily Telegraph.- At a time when so much trash is poured out upon the public, a volume of pure and sweet sentiment like this should be heartily welcomed."

A Press Opinion. “This amusing little brochure will be relished by north-country sportsmen, especially the members of the Holderness Hunt, as it abounds in topical allusions and describes favourite coverts.

A Press Opinion.Whoever Flit and Ko' may be, their delightful book is something to be truly thankful for. It is becoming trite to call every dialect writer the Barrie' of his particular district, but assuredly Flit and Ko' run no danger of being outshone even when compared with the writer of Thrums' and the creator of ' Jess.'"'

A HOLDERNESS HARVEST.

An East Yorkshire Dialect Story.

By FLIT.

150 pages, 4 full-page illustrations from Author's own sketches, sewn in an artistic cover. 1/3 net.

A Press Opinion." The author has taken a typical farmer, his wife, and his household for her subject; it is a character study, richly redolent of the soil. All that is quaint and individual in the life of Farmer Reynard is brought out with light, yet graphic touches; while the sketches of the children, Billy and Sammy, have the note of reality they are living little transcripts from nature. In the background of the homely picture we get strong and vivid glimpses of Holderness scenery, with suggestions of poetic feeling, indicating a reverend regard for Nature's varied and bountiful effects.

Author of Nestleton Magna."

Skeaping, and the frontispiece from a photograph taken shortly before Mr. Wray's death.

OLD WHALING DAYS.

Stories of Personal Adventures in the Arctic Regions.
360 pages, Crown 8vo, bound in dark green cloth, with gilt top. 3/6 net.

An interesting volume of experiences about which there is a great fascination. For seventeen years the Author saw neither ripening corn nor growing flowers, blossom nor fruit on the trees, whilst his constant surroundings were ice, snow, fogs, or the boundless expanse of ocean. The volume has a charm for all readers-old or young, for these adventures. so graphically described, in far off lands are all true.

BRAZZOCK; or SKETCHES OF SOME HUMOUROUS CHARACTERS OF A HOLDERNESS PARISH.

By the Rev. WILLIAM SMITH, Rector. 235 pages, Crown 8vo, illustrated, bound in Art Vellum and lettered in White Foil. 3/6 net.

Brazzock is the local name for the charlock or wild mustard, which grows so freely in Holderness as to form the basis of a proverb, “ Brazzock year Tonnup year." It may be taken as a plant characteristic of the district, and as such, fairly describes the men and women of these pages, for they certainly are indigenous to the soil.
