A novel of importance
MY LADY LEE
By Edith Ballinger Price
HIS is the story of a girl who was born blind. The sight of Kentucky's mountain haze that hung over her soap-box cradle, the bare, bleak walls of Willburg's Institution, the color and brilliance of New York's socialartistic world-these were things whose loss was never felt because she had never known them. And Lee Kelton was happy, after a fashion, defying a world which alternately helped and blundered through too great pity of her. Until Robin came along; and before his level gaze and eager, questing spirit her defences crumbled and she knew the bitterness of those who go alone in darkness while the ones they hold dear pass by like meteors in a flash of unseen light.
"My Lady Lee" is a most unusual novel; crowded with action and a diversity of characters that mark the several stages in Lee Kelton's career. In its understanding of the sightless and their reaction and relation to the normal world, it is without parallel in literature.
Ready July 25. $2.50

How Publishers Sell Chicago
The Booksellers' Convention in Chicago early in May was a great success, and Chicago was proud to entertain the booksellers and publishers—and have them see what a vast and receptive market there is here for good books.
The "book market" in Chicago is largely The Chicago Daily News, as experienced publishers know, and show by the testimony of their advertising lineage. In the first 5 months of 1925, The Chicago Daily News published 54,354 agate lines of book advertising, 14,578 more lines than the paper next in this field.
The Wednesday Book Pages of The Daily News hold the reader interest of literate Chicago-and this interest is shared by advertisers in these pages.
