This book is sort of a curiosity piece. It is long out of print, published in 1949, subtitled Digests of the Worlds Permanent Writings from the Ancient Classics to Current Literature. It is an 831 page paperback reference work that lists in alphabetical order famous books and authors. After author entries, the authors dates are listed, and dates of publication are also given for any books.Of course it is now over 60 years old, so current ends in 1949. It contains many works that you would expect to see, as well as works that might now be considered of tertiary literary significance. Still, when you forget exactly what was the plot of Aristophanes Knights, or wonder what is contained in the pages of Kokin-Shui, a Japanese anthology complied in the early 10th century, this book delivers. The book serves as a constant reminder of the extraordinary wealth of literature that has been written outside of Greece, Rome, Europe, and the English speaking world. The choices that the editors made seem weird at times -- for example, there is no mention of The Revolt of the Masses by Jose Ortega y Gasset, a remarkable and influential work published by the renowned Spanish philosopher in 1930 and yet it includes an entry on Benjamin Spock.
