This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on Hbrary shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 
publisher to a library and finally to you. 

Usage guidelines 

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we have taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. 

We also ask that you: 

+ Make non- commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for 
personal, non-commercial purposes. 

+ Refrain from automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine 
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the 
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attribution The Google "watermark" you see on each file is essential for informing people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner 
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liability can be quite severe.

More Books to Read. 


The following list of books is a supplement to the fourth edition of 
"What to Read" (Tract No. 29 ; 6d. n.), published in October, 1901. 
The books are classified under almost the same headings, and in some 
cases headings are inserted without books in order to indicate that 
the editors have nothing to add to the earlier list. The books cata- 
logued consist of publications since October, 1901, and only in one 
or two cases, for special reasons, are older books or new editions 
mentioned. A small number of the more important Blue-books 
are added at the end of the sections concerned. 

The editors cannot pretend to have read or examined every book 
in the list, and occasionally they may have placed books under wrong 
headings, owing to the practice, unfortunately common with authors, 
of using misleading or vague titles. 

The books selected are those likely to be required by Socialists 
and Social Reformers, and for this reason the completeness of the 
lists greatly varies. For example, under Free Trade, only a dozen 
volumes are named out of the hundreds published, whilst under 
Socialism all books of any permanent importance are (or should 
be) included. 

Finally, the editors desire to say that, although on the subjects 
named they have used every endeavor to mention all the books suit- 
able in respect of price and contents for the class of reader contem- 
plated — that is, for those who do not desire very recondite, or, unless 
absolutely indispensable, very expensive, books — they cannot hope 
that there are no omissions, and that every book named is rightly
