Abstract

AT last Mr. Baker's long announced Descriptive Guide to the Best Fiction is in our hands, and proves to be a bulky volume of over 600 pages, which must have cost its author many hours of arduous labour. Descriptive guides to literature of any sort are unfortunately too rare on this side of the world not to ensure for any decent attempt to compare with what the Americans are doing in this direction, the support of all librarians and bibliographersat least we hope soand Mr. Baker's book is a great advance on anything that has hitherto been attempted, here or elsewhere, to provide an annotated handbook to fiction. When the series of guides to literature, science, the arts, &c., announced by Messrs. Scott, Greenwood & Co., are publishedwhich it is to be hoped will be soonEngland will not be so desperately and humiliatingly out of it, as is the case at present, in the great task of selecting from and annotating the literature of the world.
