Houghton-Mifflin have entered the paper-bound reprint field with their new Riverside Editions, similar to the Rinehart Editions in format and price. We have seen the following and find them good, particularly for use in college courses where reading complete works is preferred to the anthology: Pride and Prejudice, by Jane Austen, (B-1, $1.20; I); Middlemarch, by George Eliot, (B-6, $1.20; I), The Portrait of a Lady, by Henry James, (A-7, 0.80; IIa), Selected Writings of E. A. Poe, (A-11, $0.95; I); and Newman's Apologia Pro Sua Vita, (B-10, $1.05; I). All are beautifully printed and edited.
