PLAYS FOR CHILDREN, an Annotated Index, by Alice I. Hazeltine, supervisor of children's work, St. Louis public library, with an introductory note by Cora Mel Patten, chairman juvenile department, Drama League of America. To those who are interested in producing children's plays this book is of timely value. It is not merely a list of best plays, although many of those indoxed rank high in merit. Anyone searching for artistic and beautiful dramatic literature for children will find it indicated here. Its chief purpose is to suggest the wealth of material now available in print and to help dramatic directors, teachers and librarians to discover individual plays which they may know by title but which they may be unable to find. It also enables one to compare different dramatic versions of the same story, in this way suggesting how original work may be done by a group or class of children under the guidance of a capable director. The volume contains an annotated index to children's plays, which should be of definite and practical value to all concerned in any way with the children's play movement, especially in connection with junior drama organizations, in schools and in libraries. Second edition. Price $1.50. American Library Association, Chicago.
CoLONIAI, PROSE AND POETRY, edited by William P. Trent and Benjamin W. Wells. The Transplanting of Culture, 1607-1650. This is a complete printing on thin paper, in one volume, of an earlier three-volume set which has been accepted as a standard on its subject for some years past. It is an anthology of pre-revolutionary literature in America, very carefully selected from a wide mass of material now, as a whole, difficult of access to the general reader. The titles of the three sections indicate their scope: “The Transplanting of Cul
ture,” with such early writers as Bradford, Winthrop, Cotton, Williams, Hooker, and Anne Bradstreet; “The Beginning of Americanism,” with such writers as Eliot, Wigglesworth, Penn, Sewall, and Mather; and “The Growth of National Spirit,” with such writers as Prince, Edwards, Franklin, and Hutchinson. About fifty names are represented in the collection, some still well known, others well-nigh forgotten, but all with writings of perennial interest. Selections are also found from “The Bay Psalm Book,” “The New England Primer,” and other pioneer works. The editors have contributed informing biographical notes and prefaces. Altogether it is a work of quaint and historic value which in its new form should be of ready service in the classroom, the library, and to the general reader. Cloth bound, 1026 pages, price $2.50.

IHISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA by Henry William Elson, Ph. D., author of “Side Lights on American History,” etc. The author's aim in writing this history has been to present an accurate narrative of the origin and growth of our country and its institutions in such a form as to interest the general reader.

In this history the narrative and critical features are balanced in intelligent proportion. The author has given careful attention to style and presents a book that is easy and pleasurable to read as well as instructive. Much space is devoted especially in the earlier periods to the life of the people—their habits, modes of life, occupations and general progress, In treating the national period the writer, without neglecting the industrial |and social features, has given greater
