first edition but much previously published in Catholic World; small octavo, x, 178 pp, original green cloth soiled and bowed with fore edges black, general age toning, not fragile but reading copy; the comments are not entirely negative but the author does feel "that thoughtless and indiscriminate novel-reading is to the soul what opium is to all the faculties"; many of the books under scrutiny are now infrequently read but some still well known authors are included e.g. H. Rider Haggard's "Dawn" cannot be considered dangerous because "Mr. Haggard lacks even the art of making immorality enticing.",. Volumes Included: 1
