HE PEVIEW OF
REVIEWS, as its
name implies, gives in
readable form the best
that appears in the other
great magazines all over
the world, generally on the same date that they
are published. With the recent extraordinary
increase of worthy periodicals, these careful
reviews, summaries, and
quotations, giving the
gist of periodical litera
ture, are alone worth
the subscription price.
Aside from these departments, the editorial
and contributed features of the Review of Reviews are themselves
equal in extent to a magazine. The Editor's " Progress of the World" is
jam an invaluable chronicle of the happenings of the thirty days just past.
'. with pictures on every page of the men and
women who have made the history of the month.
Tbt Literary World says: "We are deeply
impressed from month to month with the value
of the 'Review op Reviews," which is a sort
of Eiffel Tower for the survey of the whole
field of periodical literature. And yet it has a mind and voice of its
own, and speaks out with decision and sense on all punlic topic of
fevri the hour. It is a singular combination of the monthly magazine uid
5?i the daily newspaper. It is daily in its freshness;
it is monthly in its method. K is the world
under a field glass."
