Summary
  • Arthur Mee described this anthology as a "miscellany of beauty": "In these pages are poems that will never die, thoughts that have come to us down the centuries, words that fill the air with music when they are said aloud, pictures we all love to see, gems of craftsmanship from artists who love beauty and have served it well, sculptures that adorn the galleries of the world." All of the extracts (poetry, Bible passages, quotations from great men and women...) are fairly short, so that this volume is an excellent resource for anyone requiring suitable passages for copywork.
