Century Readings in the English Novel
Edited by John W. Cunliffe. Century, 1930. Hardcover. Condition: Good. Old library book with usual markings.
This book consists of highlights from twoscore very famous novels, from Gulliver's Travels to Pride and Prejudice to David Copperfield to Treasure Island. Kind of an odd idea, because all the books excerpted are well worth reading in toto; but it actually does make a neat study, and the book is in fact enjoyable to read. And it's a stout, handsome book.
