"Unlike any and all other documentary histories, no document or diary is presented as the sine qua non of its era; in a series of interesting resumes the editor tells the story of each epoch in terms of all that was printed in it, whether in book or magazine. Each volume, therefore, covers a series of years. Together with the material reprinted is a description of the literature of the day of an historical character." With maps and illustrations. Octavo.
