8vo. $3.00

SUMMARY OF CONTENTS: History of an Idea-How Sentiments Change and GrowWhat is Romantic Love?-Sensuality, Sentimentality, and Sentiment-Mistakes regarding Conjugal Love-Obstacles to Romantic Love-Specimens of African Love-Aboriginal Australian Love-Island Love on the Pacific-The American Indian's Love-India, Wild Tribes and Temple Girls-Utility and Future of Love.

Mr. Finck's new work, the fruit of thirteen years of research among original authorities, is destined to attract the widest attention among students of the evolution of marriage. From the very nature of its subject, the work is not written virginibus puerisque; but, the fulness and frankness of the discussion, which is fortified by an extraordinarily large and varied collection of love-stories of primitive races, make the book of the highest scientific value.

"Mr. Finck is familiar with most parts of the United States and with the finest scenery of Europe. He is, moreover, an artist and an author of some note, and his pages supply an excellent guide-book to the more accessible parts of the picturesque region from Southern California to Alaska.”—The Academy.

"The massive sublimities of the Selkirk Range, the solitary splendors of Shasta, Hood, and Tacoma, the immensity of the forests, the romantic shores of Puget Sound and the Columbia River, the glaciers of Alaska, the wild chasms through which the Canadian Pacific threads its way, and the fantastic curiosities of the Yellowstone Park-all these pass before the eye in a striking panorama. The story comes as near to the reality as any story well can."-Boston Literary World.

CONTENTS: I. Prelude, Poetic Prophecies-A Theatrical Family-Richard Wagner's Childhood-The First Operas-Königsberg and Riga-First Visit to Paris-Rienzi in Dresden-The Flying Dutchman-Wagner as Royal Conductor-Tannhäuser in DresdenRevolution, Artistic and Political-Lohengrin at Weimar-Literary Period-Welding the Nibelung's Ring-Was Wagner a Great Conductor?-II.

"It is a pleasure to say that he has written the story of Wagner's life and works with most admirable clearness, vigor, picturesqueness, and variety. In these qualities and in the compilation and ordering of facts, his work stands easily at the head of the Wagner biographies."-New York Tribune.

"It contains an enormous quantity of interesting material-descriptions of Wagner's music-dramas and writings, comments, criticisms, quotations from letters,

for humorous incidents, and for those touches of nature which make all the world more or less akin."-New York Times.

"This is not only a delightful, but a useful book-one well calculated, we think, to demonstrate that the whole subject of Japanese æsthetics, and of Japan as a teacher of beauty, is worthy of a treatise by an able writer of long residence and experience who is at once a scholar and a poet."-The Critic.

"Though many writers have told us about these places and the people in them, yet it is as a passionate pilgrim' with a soul sensitive to every form of loveliness, that Mr. Finck has gone. His pleasant narrative is a mosaic of most delightful quotations from standard writers, unique and original generalizations of his own, and sentences that provoke thought and imagination.”—Boston Literary World.

"Mr. Finck took a pair of keen but friendly eyes with him and kept them wide open, and he tells his story in a racy and entertaining style."-The Atlantic Monthly.

"We have but one fault to find with Mr. Finck's book, namely, that it is not longer. A writer who has so rare a gift of graphic description, and who knows so well how to discriminate between the commonplace and the interesting, might very well have given free rein to his Pegasus. His studies in local color are all that they should be."-New York Tribune.

"He finds room in his narrative for occasional trivialities, and his humor is in places exuberant, but he has the merit of never being dull, or of taxing the reader's datience with labored descriptions of famous pictures or buildings. He is at his best in his sketches of street scenes.' "-The Nation.

"Tangier, the 'Infidel City,' and Tetuan are described in chapters positively glowing with imagery."-Philadelphia Public Ledger.
