“AROUND THE WORLD WITH JOSIAH ALLEN’S WIFE
By MARIETTA HOLLEY.
Samantha with her party visits Hawaii, Philippines, India, China, Egypt, the Holy Land, as well as the European countries, Samantha describing each country and its inhabitants, meeting prominent people, and having queer and laughable adventures in all of them.
The book — the best of all Miss Holley’s works — is full of humorous and pathetic incidents, but, as in all her books, the main interest is in the wise and witty conversation of Josiah Allen’s Wife.
A large, handsome Volume, profusely illustrated and beautifully bound in cloth. Price, $1.50.“
