The publishers have made one of the prettiest books of the year. It may be had at the book stores for $1.50.
The current number of the Chap Book announces that henceforward it will be published by H. S. Stone and Company, Mr. Kimball having retired from the business management. In form and substance the magazine will be carried on along the lines announced in the first number. The Chap Book is now two years old and since its first issue improvements have been steady. It has ceased to be a fad; but has really created a place for itself among the multitudes of other magazines. Its form is handy and the contents are better than those of most other such publications. The May 1st number contains among other articles a short story by Henry James. In the near future, the editors announce, several stories by the late Robert Louis Stevenson will be published.
