BENJAMIN FRANKLIN, by Frank Luther Mott and Chester E. Jorgenson. New York. American Book Company. $1.00. 1936.

By S. C. S.

MORE complete than any previous volume of Franklin's writings, this compact book contains many hitherto unpublished letters and several selections which have not been widely distributed. The compilers, however, have shown excellent discrimination in their choice of excerpts from this most varied and voluminous literary output.

As in the other volumes of this American Writers Series, an adequate criticism and biography is included with an extensive bibliography. The works of about 15 authors have now been published in this cheap but extremely valuable edition and about ten more volumes are now being prepared. They may be recommended to any who would like a ready reference to the important works of American writers without the great expense of many volumes on each man.
