THE SATURDAY BOOK

The sixth day of the week, in this era of le weekend, is generally reserved for le sport, and The Saturday Book is a decidedly sportive text peeking out from an impeccably Victorian cover. Among the Collectors' Items are naughty valentines, Picturesque Tours take in Glendalaugh, a Monastic City, and ruined cities of Ceylon; A Cabinet of Curiosities contains considerations of ""The Noble Art of Venery,"" ""Ladies at War,"" ""The Social History of Nudism; Endpapers include ""The Affair at Mayerling,"" ""The British Way of Death"" and ""I Like It, Give Me More."" The ample illustrations are freighted with import for the devotee, who must have his Saturday Book each season (this is the twenty-sixth annual edition) as sure as elevenses or high tea.
