The Face and the Mask (1894)
Twenty-four delightful short stories are collected in this volume. Mr. Barr is one of the most interesting and remarkable of American writers. "A pure humorist," A. Conan Doyle calls him. He is happily described by The London Atheneaum as a writer who deals with real men and women.
A Prince of Good Fellows (1901)
James V of Scotland, brave, chivalrous, generous-hearted, impulsive and full of delightful strategy, with a mania for wandering about his kingdom incognito, is a character worthy of the role of hero in any novel or drama, and Mr. Barr's extended knowledge of new and interesting incidents in connection with the life of this youthful monarch, his knowledge of many small events which are here so entertainingly presented, makes it impossible not to enjoy the work in its entirety.
