writing in which Mr. Brooks excels is a mingling of historic fact with playful imagination. Take, for example, The Century Book of Famous Americans, of which the Somerville library owns four copies, all bearing the marks of use.

No wonder the book is issued under the auspices of the National Society of the Daughters of the America
