Books, Magazines Etc.
——A magazine article that attracted wide
attention some months ago was Marion Craw.
ford’s presentment of the city of Washington
illustrated by Andre Castaigne. Author and
artist will work together again in a series” of
articles on Rome, soon to appear in The Cen-
tury. There will be three Papers, ‘A Kaleid-
oscope of gRome,” “St. Peter's,” and
“The Vatican,” and these will treat of
scenes not witnessed by casual visitors. As
both Mr. Crawford and Mr. Castaigne are mem.
bers of the Church of Rome, they may he ex-
pected to show a devoted sympathy with the
subjects thiey have chosen. Mr. Crawford is a
cosmopolitan in the largest sense, and it is
doubtful whether any other American is more
thoroughly at home in the Sacred City. The
illustrations will include striking restorations
of classical scenes.
The October number of Harper's Magazine

zine both the historical and present aspects of
