_THE OLDEN-TIME SERIES._

16mo. Per vol., 50 cents.



There appears to be, from year to year, a growing popular taste for
quaint and curious reminiscences of "Ye Olden Time," and to meet this,
Mr. Henry M. Brooks has prepared a series of interesting handbooks.
The materials have been gleaned chiefly from old newspapers of Boston
and Salem, sources not easily accessible, and while not professing to
be history, the volumes contain much material for history, so combined
and presented as to be both amusing and instructive. The titles of
some of the volumes indicate their scope and their promise of
entertainment:--

CURIOSITIES OF THE OLD LOTTERY.

DAYS OF THE SPINNING-WHEEL.

SOME STRANGE AND CURIOUS PUNISHMENTS.

QUAINT AND CURIOUS ADVERTISEMENTS.

LITERARY CURIOSITIES.

NEW-ENGLAND SUNDAY, ETC.



"It has been the good fortune of the writer to be allowed a peep at
the manuscript for this series, and he can assure the lovers of the
historical and the quaint in literature that something both valuable
and pleasant is in store for them. In the specialties treated of in
these books Mr. Brooks has been for many years a careful collector and
student, and it is gratifying to learn that the material is to be
committed to book form."--_Salem Gazette._
