KIRKUS REVIEW

This new edition of an old Standby (1897) has been fully revised and extended to now include more than 15,000 biographical inclusions (a 25% increase). The individual assessments have been re-evaluated according to modern criticism and scholarship; the format has been modernized; and there is a 35 page index with more than 6000 entries of cross-reference. It is an excellent single volume reference aid.
