KIRKUS REVIEW

A valuable handbook on two scores,- as a basic guide to the individual who wishes to fill out the gaps in his basic reading and build a personal library, and to the small library, with no professional supervision, and need for a check list. Part I is historical in background, a survey of the world's literature- classic, imaginative, informative, an immense amount of information in brief compass. Part II has some special articles on reading- a list of 100 significant books- some highly personal lists of basic books contributed by the committee. Part III contains 30 lists, books in all fields, 1100 titles.
