MR. GIBBS'S NEW POEM.

In white enamel and morocco, with an original design in gold and colours, price 10s. 6d.

ARLON GRANGE AND A CHRISTMAS LEGEND.

"Mr. Gibbs has a story to tell, and he wishes to tell it in his own way.... 'Arlon Grange' is written with power, and contains many passages of not a little beauty, while the sentiment that runs through the story is thoroughly healthy."

Saturday Review. "This is a very beautiful edition of the charming poem of Arlon Grange'; the exquisite embellishment conferred upon the work is in itself a strong material proof of the widespread recognition of the poetic merits of the author. These are now enshrined in a book which may be fairly classed as a leading gem of the season."-Morning Post.

"We can safely tell Mr. Gibbs that his verse has the true ring, and that his present volume is a welcome addition to the poetic literature of the period. There is, above all, in Arlon Grange,' a fine tone of strong Anglo-Saxon vigour, free from that unwholesome sensualism which too often infects the versifiers of our age."-Hour.

One Hundred Guineas will be given for Illustrations of this Work. Terms of Competition may be had from
PROVOST & Co. 36, Henrietta-street, Covent-garden.
