A continuous narrative of the four gospels according to the revised version, ill.u.s.trated by numerous half-tone pictures. The selection is not so choice as one could wish, yet many of the pictures are by the best artists, and present a consecutive pictorial story of the life of Christ.

"The Photographs of the Holy Land." Globe Bible Publishing Co., Philadelphia. $3.00. The same in cheaper style in eight portfolios at 10 cents apiece.

Photographs of cla.s.sic and modern pictures of the child Jesus and of other Biblical subjects. Unmounted, card size, 3-3/4 cents each; cabinet size, 7-1/2 cents each. A catalogue in German will be sent on application. R. Tamme, Dresden, Germany.

Blue print copies of pictures of Biblical scenes by the old masters and by modern artists. Mr. Alfred A. Hart, 221 West 109th Street, New York City. Card size, one cent each.

Clear, durable, excellent; of a kind likely to develop good taste. The low price makes it possible to encourage children to make collections of their own. A single secular school has used over twelve thousand of these pictures.

The Christmas catalogues of publishers often contain serviceable pictures.

The standard histories of art are full of ill.u.s.trative material. The teacher should be ever on the alert.
