THE AMERICAN TREASURY

An omnium gatherum from the whole of American literature and writing, this may well prove to be an essential item in any good library. The familiar is here and much that deserves to become familiar. The prefaces and introductions to each part also contain eminently quotable material, and as 500 years of Americans talking about themselves pass, so does the portrait of America pass in review.
