The World's Greatest Books According to Mee and Hammerton: a Book List From a Century Ago... - Page 6

These books come from a 20-volume book series entitled "The World's Greatest Books" by Arthur Mee and J.A. Hammerton. This list was created in 1910, so don't be alarmed if some of the books you typically see are not included in the list. The collection includes both fiction and non-fiction. It is interesting to see which books became enduring classics and which ones faded into oblivion. There were a few books from this list that didn't even come up with an internet search (those were left off!).
