National Geographic : 1912 Sep
HE boy who stuffed his little fist in the dyke and saved Holland knew that the ocean belonged on the other side of the dyke. After all, the most valuable home lesson for the coming gener ation is "A place for everything"... et cetera. The axiom is old, but there are twentieth century ways of teaching it. One way is to give the boys and girls a Globe-Wemicke bookcase section for their use-or a two or three section library of their own. This will not only teach them system, but will encourage reading-the knowledge of a hundred centuries has been stored in books for them. This is the Globe -Wernicke period in bookcases. A Globe-Wernicke Bookcase grows with the library-no empty shelves yawning for books, no overcrowded shelves. The beauty of its lines is the result of fine cabinet work and lasting stability. "Booklovers' Shopping List"-This little book lists the works of great authors and gives the prices of the same in sets. The list includes the low priced, popular sets as well as the deluxe editions. Every book buyer should have a copy. Sent free with the Globe-Wernicke catalog. Address Dept. N.
