The Threshold of Bookland

The Threshold of Bookland ONCE when I was very young, about twelve years of age, I stumbled against a problem in criticism. I had been reading somewhere a list of authors of great adventure stories. Scott, Stevenson, Blackmore, Kingsley, Defoe, were all there so were Dumas and Hugo even Kipling, Henty, Ballantyne, Rider Haggard and Jules Verne had intruded into the fold. With all of these I had some acquaintancealthough I had neither the advantage of money nor yet access to the libraries which children of today take all too fatally for grantedand I loved each of them with a steady or a frantic devotion. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Library Review Emerald Publishing
