A HOLIDAY TOUR IN EUROPE.
BY JOEL COOK.
One volume, i2mo, 310 pages, fine cloth, $1; paper cover, 75 cents.
"One of the most instructive and best written books of travel that has of late been published in this country. It is a book that statesmen and tourists may read with profit."—Forney's Philadelphia Progress.
"Mr. Cook seemed to grasp, with peculiar aptitude, the salient points of such matters as would naturally attract the attention of a stranger, and his letters were marked with a vigor and freshness most rare, and thoroughly unlike the usual paraphrase of the shilling guide-bookimposed upon newspaper readers."—North American.
"No one can read Mr. Cook's correspondence without being impressed with its exceptional merit. He is a good observer; he knows when to speak and when to be silent; what to give and what to withhold. Thus his letters are neither barren nor trivial, and can be read with as much profit as pleasure."—Philadelphia Inquirer.

VALENTINES FOR 1879.
The reputation of this house for forty-four years of making the most salable Valentine Stock will be maintained in the line NOW BEADY for the approaching season—which in exquisiteness of design, artistic finish, and suitability to every taste, will surpass an}' Valentines ever before offered.
Valentines are adapted to any kind of store, and pay a larger profit with less risk than any other class of goods.
I sell no Valentines on commission, and therefore have only FRESH, BRIGHT, HEW STOCK, which, this season, will include many novelties.
My line of COMIC VALENTINES recommend themselves by their superior quality, as well as by the salability of every subject and the perfection of the assortment.
The establishment of this house since 1834—a period of forty-four years—is a guarantee to new customers that they will be liberally, promptly, and honestly dealt with.
This line of Valentines, being superior in design and finish, is sold at
ONE HALF THE RETAIL PRICE.
These Valentines are made of the finest Gold, Silver, White, and Cameo Lace Papers, with elegant ornaments of Flowers and Love Devices, with Gold and Silver Backgrounds, enshrined in the most beautiful suggestions in Paper, Wax, and Flowers.
No Chromos are used to mar the refined and delicate effects inseparable from love offerings.
In these Valentines artistic effects have been attained alike creditable to sender and recipient.
