POEMS. By the late Lionel Johnson. With a title design and colophon
    by H. P. Horne. Printed at the Chiswick Press, on hand-made paper. Crown 8vo.
5s. net.

    “Full of delicate fancy, and display much lyrical grace and felicity.”—Times.
    “An air of solidity, combined with something also of severity, is the first impression one receives from these
pages. . . . The poems are more massive than most lyrics are; they aim at dignity and attain it. This is, we
believe, the first book of verse that Mr. Johnson has published; and we would say, on a first reading, that for a first
book it was remarkably mature. And so it is, in its accomplishment, its reserve of strength, its unfaltering style. . . .
Whatever form his writing takes, it will be the expression of a rich mind, and a rare talent.”—Saturday Review.

THE CANON: An Exposition of the Pagan Mystery perpetuated in the
    Cabala as the Rule of all the Arts. With a Preface by R. B. Cunninghame Graham.
Finely printed at the Chiswick Press. Demy 8vo. Over 400 pp., with numerous Illustra-
tions. 12s. net.
    “The modern mystic is commonly a poor fool on the verge of entire intellectual disorganization. But the
anonymous author of ‘The Canon’ is not of that generation; his work has the unmistakable quality of power.
He is three or twelve hundred years out of his generation, which is after all his misfortune rather than his fault.
Amidst the Rosicrucians or the Gnostics he would have been a great master. The chapters on the Cabala, The
Ark, and The Temples, for instance, are really admirable expositions of a method of inquiry that I had thought
vanished from the earth. . . . A thoughtful and laborious contribution to theological study.”—Mr. H. G. Wells in
The Saturday Review.
    “The very best books are not written to please the world but to please the writers, and so the anonymous
writer of ‘The Canon’ has doubtless already had his reward.”—Outlook.     “This beautiful book . . . . with all its curious learning is beyond the scope of all but the most mystical
and credulous reader.”—Manchester Guardian.
