EXTRACTS FROM PRESS NOTICES ON No. 4 OF “THE SAVOY.”
“I begin to believe that ‘The Savoy’ has a future. . . . The Savoyards have taken seriously to literature, Mr. Symons alone keeping steadily to his old manner. Altogether, this is an issue whose promoters need have no fear of criticism. This time, at any rate, it has gone ahead of its rival, the ‘Yellow Book .’”—Weekly Sun.
“All praise is due to the initiator of this very original magazine, which attempts to provide in England a journal which shall only contain what is admirable and what is beautiful. Very charming and restrained, too, is the lithograph, ‘The Novel,’ by Mr. T. R. Way; the wood-engraving, after Mr. Charles Conder’s design for a frontispiece to Balzac’s ‘La Fille aux Yeux d’Or,’ is admirable. In the literary contents of the number there is an abundance of good things. To name the writers merely would be sufficient guarantee that such was the case, but the interest of the subjects with which they deal, too, has to be considered.”—Birmingham Gazette.

“To many Mr. Symons may appear a mystic and a dreamer, to us he is a modern minstrel, a troubadour of the times, with a subtly sweet note of song, which has a cadence and a lilt that linger in the memory like the flash of a fountain in the Temple on the one hand, or the distant murmur of a mountain stream on the other .”—The Newsagent.

THE ONLY RELIABLE WORK ON THE SUBJECT IN THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE.

By Robert B. Douglas.

“Mr. Douglas has produced a volume every line of which I read with keen interest. It is a singularly vivid and life-like picture of what life in the old French Court was like; and the portrait of the central figuie of the book is very clear and very telling.”— Mr. T. P. O’Connor in the Weekly Sun.
“At a time when the book-market is flooded with translations of forgotten and apocryphal French Memoirs, it is something to meet with a newly-published biography of a French celebrity which is what it pretends to be . . . . and is a book of fascinating interest .”—Daily News.

In one volume, Crown 8vo, bound in art linen, price Six Shillings.
“One of the wittiest, one of the queerest, . . . . and one of the most amusing novels. Father Greenwood is a noble study of the religious character.”— Morning.
“Basil Thimm’s adventures are narrated in a way which is often exceedingly vivid and interesting.”— Glasgow Herald.
“Mr. Connell has already shown a singular liking for the seamy side of life, and unusual power in dealing with it. ‘The Fool and his Heart’ has all the merits of his earlier work. There is the same vigorous and trenchant style, the same grim humour, and the same grasp of a few not very pleasing types of human nature. . . . A feature of the story is the use that Mr. Connell makes of Catholicism. . . . Full of incident and graphic touches. It should add to Mr. Connell’s reputation.”— Scotsman.
