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 Book Review Digest The practice, inaugurated last year, of issuing the annual cumulation of the book review digest in February. Instead of in December may now be said to be established. The valuable reviews in the monthly periodicals do not, however, all appear in time to be included even under this new arrangement. Where additional criticisms of 1915 books are deemed of' sufficient importance, they will be entered in the 1916 Digest. This year has seen a change in the editorial staff. Miss Clara E. Fanning, under whose editorship the Digest has been published since 1905, left in September to take a position in the Minneapolis Public Library, and Miss Margaret Jackson, formerly with The Century Company and the New York Public Library, assumed editorial charge at that date. The descriptive notes for September were written by Justina Leavitt Wilson, who has also contributed occasional notes to other numbers during the year. The Dewey classification numbers, a new feature of the 1915 Digest, have been assigned by Miss Corinne Bacon, editor of the forthcoming Standard Catalog. Miss Bacon is one of the advisory committee appointed by the with the cordial approval of Mr. Dewey, to' make recommendations for the expansion of the Dewey classification. The Digest and the Standard Catalog will, therefore, have the benefit of the recommendations of this advisory boar d.

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 The Book Review Digest, Vol. 15: Reviews of 1919 Books The author offers this book as the first serious and thoroughgoing attempt to treat the subject of health education from the rural teacher's point of view. Recent experience has brought to light the appalling low grade of physical fitness among our young men, and, says the preface to this volume. Contrary to tradition and popular 'belief, country children have been found to be as defective physically and in many cases more defective than city children. The book has been prepared with the conviction that the practice of hygiene should be one of the foremost of the aims of the school. Among the subjects covered are: Health conditions in the country; Getting chil dren to form health habits; Studying the health of the children; Planning the course of study in hygiene; War on ies. Mosquitoes. And other disease-carrying insects; Play and physical education; Posture and health. The final chap ter treats of The measurement of the teacher's work in hygiene, a pioneer effort to work out a scale. Features of the book are good illus trations, reading references, and class exer cises and index. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.

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.
