Messrs. Nelson publish - in their popular " Edinburgh Library

" a cheap edition of Mr. John. Buchan's A Book of Escapes and Hurried Journeys. It is of the type of boys' books which all people—boys and girls and grown-ups— enjoy tremendously ; for there is nothing like the combination of hardihood and quick wits which an escape from danger demands to stir the blood and keep boredom at bay.
