KIRKUS REVIEW

Short excerpts arranged by subject -- ""Books,"" ""The Possibilities of Man,"" ""Reality,"" etc. -- and illustrated with heroic figures who look like they've stepped right out of a WPA mural. Unlike August Derleth's Emerson, Our Contemporary (1970), there is no supplementary background, but the format is monumentally impressive.
