“Too much praise cannot be accorded the projectors of this work. It lays, for a very small sum, the cream of the best writers before the reader of average means. It usually happens that very few, except professional people and scholars, care to read all that even the most famous men have written. They want his best work, the one people talk most about, - and when they have read that they are satisfied.” – N.Y.Com. Advertiser.
