The most artistically illustrated books published in Canada during the past few years are the annual calendars of the Toronto Art Students' League. The "Ninety Seven" is the best of the series, and is a whole art education in itself. The subjects of the various sketches are the "Canadian Water-ways," and the book is thus a Canadian souvenir, as well as a good example of an artistic taste amongst our people. C. W. Jeffrey's pen-and-ink sketch of Wolfe's Cove is a fine piece of work, and so is F. H. Brigden's type of a Canadian river valley. Several of the
artists who contribute are now resident in New York.
