Excerpt from A Guide to British and American Novels: Being a Comprehensive Manual of All Forms of Popular Fiction in Great Britain, Australasia, and America From Its Commencement Down to 1894

This book is the result of thirty-six years continuous study of British, American, and Australasian fiction.

Obviously few general readers in these busy days have leisure to read the novels of the past; and yet some knowledge of these is important, while, through ignorance of how to select judiciously amid the myriads of old or comparatively old novels and romances, the contemporary reader is sorely perplexed and inevitably deprived of very much pleasure and profit, through want of the necessary guide.

The object of this manual is to place before readers, in succinct form, a trustworthy account, brief as is compatible with lucidity, of most of the principal novels and romances of the past. Readers can select thence whatever appears most suited to their tastes, or remain content with the information here given.
