NCE books either overcrowded limited shelf space or empty shelves yawned and waited for books. When one bookcase overflowed, a new one was purchased, and its gaping shelves were gradually filled. That was before the Globe Wernicke period in bookcases. Now, books and their shelves come together. The bookcase grows apace with the library. This is the modern way of building a library. This is the Globe-Wernicke idea. " The World's Best Books "-This little booklet lists collections of books for good reading, selected by such men as Dr. Charles W. Eliot, Hamilton Wright Mabie, John Ruskin, and William D. Howe. Every booklover should have a copy. Sent freewith the Globe-Wernicke Bookcase Catalog.
