Excerpt from The Book Review Digest, Vol. 15: Reviews of 1919 Books They are unusual in that while representa tive of a type of Russian fiction, they are free from the obsession of sex. The sordidness, and piercing morbidity that characterizes much Slavic literature. Both stories are rather cheer fully occupied with death, neither from the point of view of one emotionally concerned. Nor of the sentimental observer. But of one who sees and interprets calmly the meaning of the transition.

Excerpt from The Book Review Digest, Vol. 5: Book Reviews of 1909 in One Alphabet We shall pass over the author's duty to readers. We do wish, however, to re mind our patrons that the responsibility of the reviewer is a vital one. Thru his criticism, the book is made or marred for a large class of readers who have not time to experiment with the season's output of literature. Because the reviewer's obligation is a serious one, the list of periodicals from which we cull excerpt material for the Book Review Digest has been selected with the utmost care; only reliable and authoritative magazines have been chosen whose departure from high standards of excellence results in injury to an established reputation. The te views published in such periodicals may not be infallible - nothing short of the millennium can eliminate personal bias - but they represent the most conscientious interpretation and the best judgment of the present day. With the foregoing facts in mind, we beg our patrons to remember that the Book Review Digest, without an Opinion of its own, aims only to assemble the various critical judgments in a manner that will enable a reader to arrive quickly at a reasonably intelligent conclusion concerning the merits of a new book, and to offer reference data that will make possible easy access to the reviews from which the clippings were made.

Excerpt from The Book Review Digest, Vol. 8: Eighth Annual Cumulation; Book Reviews of 1912 in One Alphabet This the eighth annual cumulation of the Book Review Digest comes to its completion with but little change in the policy that has prevailed in former annual numbers. Practically the only new feature added is that of estimating by the thousand words the cost of the volumes entered. About 2300 books have been noted during the year. The subject index introduced last year has been continued and will be found combined with a title index at the end of the volume. The increasing use of the Digest by librarians is of course gratifying to us whose business it is to make it; especially pleased have we been this year with its introduction into the Library training schools where in many cases it is now used as a means of instruction in book selection.

Excerpt from Book Review Digest: Sixth Annual Cumulation; Book Reviews of 1910 in One Alphabet This volume is the sixth annual cumulation of the Book Review Digest. It contains descriptive notes and excerpts from the criticisms of the best English and American reviewers upon the books which have been issued by the various publishers during 1910. We have given estimates of about books for which we have had reviews, we have endeavored to be fair and judicial in our summary of them, and we have included many books for which the librarian obviously would have no use in the belief that a knowledge of what is not desirable is quite as valuable as a knowledge of what is. We have quoted adverse and favorable criticisms impartially and we have endeavored to keep constantly in view our ideal of representing things as they are.

Excerpt from The Book Review Digest, Tenth Annual Cumulation: Book Reviews of 1914 in One Alphabet Though written from full knowledge, the author fails to expound his subject with lucidity and clearness of style. While he states fairly the scientific method of hypothesis, he makes the book too much a metaphysics of science. But because of the lack of accurate, popular books, this will be useful in libraries having a demand for such reading.
