One hundred and one famous poems, with a prose supplement

One hundred and one famous poems, with a prose supplement (1922) by Roy Jay Cook.


A SPIRIT of daring out of all proportion to any hope of gain must at times possess a publisher. You doubtless have heard the story of the "One Hundred and One Best Songs"; how its publishers printed several hundred thousand books in order that they might be sold at a price so low as to enable every child to have one. That, likewise, is the aim of this collection. To that eminent critic of English verse whose painstaking care in proof-reading has made this volume authoritative, the publisher acknowledges his gratitude and debt. 


The selections by Emerson, Burroughs, Holmes, Lowell, Sill, Whittier, Cary, Larcom and Longfellow, are used by permission of and special arrangement with Houghton-Mifflin Company, authorized publishers of their works. Grateful acknowledgment is also made to D. Appleton & Company, F. W. Bourdillon, The Bobbs-Merrill Company, Charles Scribner's Sons, Doubleday-Page & Company, Little, Brown & Company, George H. Doran Company, Lothrop, Lee & Shepard Company, A. P. Watt & Son, "The Academy," London, and the Librarian, University of Edinburgh, without whose kind co-operation this collection could not have been made.
