THE WORLD'S BEST.
“THE WORLD'S BEST EPIGRAMS"
“THE WORLD'S BEST CONUNDRUMS"
NEW YORK AND LONDON
It has been the purpose of the compiler and publishers of The World's Best-Loved Poems to gather into one volume the choicest of the world's most helpful short religious and popular poems and brief prose selections, including famous old-time favorites and the best of current popular verse; the masterpieces of renowned poets and gems of anonymous writers.
Many of the pieces were selected not from the standpoint of highest literary merit, but because of their appeal to the human heart. It is confidently believed the compilation as a whole will add a quota of cheer and inspiration to all of us—world pilgrims that we are!
The compiler has endeavored to include no copyrighted poem without the consent of the owner. He is grateful to those who have generously granted this favor: without this co-operation the anthology could not have been so comprehensive.
