Third Avenue, New York

Arthur Williams, Boston, Massachusetts, 1946

Description

Juror Notes

Short stories, like novels, seldom find their way into the Fifty Books selections because it is difficult to dress fiction distinctively without interfering with the story. Here the typographer and artist have provided just enough seasoning to heighten pleasantly the flavor of the text. The binding is plainer than need be.
