WOOLLCOTT'S SECOND READER

A careful reading of forewords and afterwords and a study of the Table of Contents is enough to make one's mouth water for the complete volume of the Second Reader. He calls it himself ""another tour of certain bypaths in the realms of gold"" and his first venture proved indubitably that here was the ideal guide. Enough of the old and familiar, with Edith Wharton and Willa Cather and Kenneth Grahame; enough of the moderns with Albert Halper, Ernest Hemingway, Stephen Crane; enough of the special and choice and rare in old and new, -- Gustav Eckstein, Max Beerhorm, William Austin, Clarence Day, Surety, as with the other volume, something for every taste, and nothing obvious.
