HAROLD BELL WRIGHT'S Greatest Novel
"The Eyes of the World"
With Illustrations in Colors by F. Graham Cootes
Uniformly Bound with His Other Novels, $1.35 Net
HAROLD BELL WRIGHT has never written a failure.
"The Eyes of the World" is Mr. Wright's sixth consecutive success.
HAROLD BELL WRIGHT broke the world's record for a popular novel with "The Winning of Barbara Worth" while yet a young man in his thirties.
"The Eyes of the World" will make a new world's record, because it is better than anything the author has yet done.
HAROLD BELL WRIGHT has the largest audience of any present day author, proven by the sale of over five million copies of his wholesome books.
"The Eyes of the World'' is a powerful blow at the present day evils in Art and Literature. It is as realistic and fearless in its condemnation as was the author's portrayal of conditions in the church world in "The Calling of Dan Matthews."
HAROLD BELL WRIGHT made the world better through the vigor of his thought in "That Printer of Udell's." He gave to the race a priceless contribution in "Their Yesterdays" and it has enjoyed the largest sale ever known excepting "The Winning of Barbara Worth." "The Eyes of the World" for a setting has one of Southern California's cities among orange
groves and the surrounding mountains. The dramatic action is intense. The keen analysis of character and insight of the human soul is the perfection of skill. The descriptions of nature are true and wonderful. The pathos and humor delightful. "The Eyes of the World" is more romantic than "The Shepherd of the Hills." It is more masterful than "The Winning of Barbara Worth."
