By The Reader's Digest Association. Contributors include Arthur Train, J. Edgar Hoover, Alexander Woollcott, and John T. Scopes (yes, "that one"), on topics from Ponzi to Bluebeard to Abraham Lincoln's assassination.
A midcentury hardcover in good shape with gilt page tops and a crisp fingerprint graphic on the front. Minimal shelfwear for a 1965 publication, though the non-tinted page edges show foxing. A nice reading copy of a vintage compendium.
