SEVEN HARVARD BOOKS TO APPEAR DURING WINTER

COOLIDGE'S NEW HISTORY STILL IS UNNAMED

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The Mid-Winter List of books to be published by the University Press was announced yesterday by D. T. Pottinger '06, of the Harvard University Press.

It includes seven volumes on subjects of widely varied interest, to be given publication during the next three months. In addition important volumes are being prepared by Dr. J. Herbert Waite '13, Professor Edwin W. Paterson, Columbia University, John Dukinson, Harvard University, Arthur G. Kennedy, Leland Stanford University, Professor Howard R. Patch '12, Smith College, and W. J. Lawrence, Dublin, Ireland.

Among the January books, Professor Kuno Francke's "German After War Problems" is outstanding. Professor Francke's volume comments on the intellectual and moral revival of Germany since the war and gives an analysis of the forces which contributed to Germany's unexpectedly quick recovery since the war. Professor Francke's intimate insight into the German point of view has made this latest volume on post-war Germany particularly illuminating.

Professor Hydere E. Rollins '16, who received his professorship in English last spring, its publishing two collections of old English ballads. "The Pack of Autolycus" is the first of these, and the second has the alluring title "The Paradise of Dainty Devices". Rollins is a regular contributor to the University Press. Last year at this time appeared his "A Geergeous Gallery of Gallant Inventions", a volume of late sixteenth century songs, a reprint of a delightful anthology of popular songs of that period.

Professor C. H. Haskins '08, Gurney Professor of History and Political Science, has his revised edition of his "History of Medieval Science" on the press, and Professor George Loot Moore's new volume is called "Judaism At the Beginning of the Christian Era." Professor A. C. Coolidge '87 has not named his new European history which is due off the press in a month or so.

The Harvard Law School is publishing a new series called "Harvard Studies in Administrative Law". This series will appear in January.

In April the volume of the William Belvin Noble Lectures Series for 1926 appears. It will be the Reverend H. D. A., Major's "English Modernism."
