A unique work and, therefore, somewhat valuable if out of date. Brown did the European section and McDermott the Western Hemisphere. Limited to belles-lettres, the work includes a "General Review" from the beginnings to the end of the nineteenth century; a detailed history of the medieval period; North and South America; and contemporary literature in Europe. Each chapter is followed by a bibliography of suggested reading and a list of references. The suggested reading lists could have been more complete, but the work is still a helpful guide to a field that is more often talked about than studied in such a unified way. Index.
