KIRKUS REVIEW

A bookshop staple for home library shelves, and a public library staple for reference shelves, this Second Treasury of the Familiar is similar to the first and is again a sizeable collection of representative, memorable prose and poetry. Whether in the prose of John Adams, F.D.R., Lincoln, Ernie Pyle, Hans Christian Andersen, Samuel Johnson, Swift, John Bunyan, Lewis Carroll, St. Francis of Assisi, Emerson, Ulysses S. Grant, Charles Darwin, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Lewis Carroll, Anatole France, the Bible or the Atlantic Charter--- or the poetry of W. S. Gilbert, the Lake poets, Browning, Milton, Shakespeare, Matthew Arnold, Emily Dickinson, Edgar Guest, William Blake, Sir Walter Scott, Joyce Kilmer, Whitman, Ogden Nash or Don Marquis- you will find something for all times and all tastes. A big book of big names, and some lesser known and anonymous, this is for casual perusal and permanent pleasure.
