HIS imposing work will be in every respect a

monumental piece of bookmaking. The “ His

tory” is now appearing in Italy, under the imprint of the Istituto Italiano d'Arti Grafichi. The author is a gentleman of high social standing and the leading historical writer in Italy at the present time. The translator is himself an authority on Venice, whose books on that city, and the distinguished position he has held there for nearly twenty years as British Archivist, have won for him the reputation of knowing more about Venice than any other living Englishman. The volumes will be distinguished typographically by being printed in the beautiful Italian type cut by Bodoni, which was so famous a century ago, and has recently been revived by The University Press.

THE GUILDS OF FLORENCE
Historical, Industrial, and Political

By EDGCUMBE STALEY
HE cumulative energies of the Florentines had their focus in

,
community was the guild system so thoroughly developed as it
was in Florence. A complete and connected history of the guilds
has never been compiled, and the intention of the present work is
to supply the omission. The author has exhausted the various
sources of information, and it is believed that he has left nothing
unsaid. The illustrative feature is worthy of comment, as the
efforts made to have the pictures as numerous and useful as possible
have resulted in a wonderful collection. In every way this is a
most impressive volume.

With many illustrations. Tall royal 8vo, $5.00 net.
