Opinions Of Weight

The Nation

"A wonderful enterprise, admirably planned, and deserving the highest success."

Westminster Gazette

We have nothing but the highest praise for these little books, and no one who examines them will have anything else."

Times

"The undertaking bids fair to prove of real value as an educative influence. . . . The information that they give, far from being scrappy, is wonderfully complete and clearly presented, and the judiciously chosen bibliographies at the end of each volume will help their readers to pass on from these capable treatises, which are something more than introductions, to a fuller study of the several subjects."

Nature

"The People's Books represent an independent and significant venture, which we cordially hope will meet with success. In this series we are provided with dainty volumes, written by people whose lives have been devoted to the subjects which they survey."

Pall Mall Gazette

"A series with a great and popular future."

Medical Times

"We can imagine nothing better than these books for the use of evening science classes or for private study . . . every volume is well worth possessing."

Academy

"The series bids fair to provide a liberal education at a nominal cost to all who are fortunate enough to possess it."

Observer

"They seem to be taking the world for their parish."

Daily Chronicle

"One volume, an anthology of verse, is entitled Pure Gold, This surely would be a not improper name for the whole series."

Sunday Times

"Here are volumes which throw open all the treasures of science, philosophy, history, and literature, as they are known to scholars of the present generation, books which are planned to cover the whole range of knowledge, and summarise some particular branch in an easy and simple style that is sure to urge the reader to closer study of the subject. Was I not right in declaring that education is within everyone's reach to-day ? With the 'People's Books' in hand there should be nobody of average intelligence unable to secure self-education. His library - this library - should be his all-sufficing university."

The Star (Johannesburg)

"Probably this bold undertaking by Messrs. Jack is the first attempt to throw open all the treasures of science, philosophy, history, and literature known to scholars of the present generation. We have selected the series for special mention in our leading rather than in our review columns, because we are convinced that it is precisely what is wanted in South Africa and other British Colonies, whose peoples are profoundly interested in the new knowledge, but whose chances of obtaining accurate information on the subject are few and far between,"

The Expository Times

"The most amazing of all the issues of cheap books which have astonished our day and generation."

Notes And Queries

"They are not only well 'up-to-date/ and the work of competent authors, but are clearly printed on sufficiently good paper and quite prettily bound."

MR. WILL CROOKS, M.P.

"The simple, homely language in dealing with a scientific subject is such a rarity that at first sight one took to reading without effort."
