"The selection of stories in this new library has been made from several points of view. The first aim of the editors was to bring the reader a fine group of the greatest short stores of America and other countries - the stories which stand supreme for their emotional power, their deft delineation of character, their mastery of plot, or their dynamic message to humanity. Thus these six volumes contain a wide variety of tales, all rich in the qualities which stamp them as masterpieces of world literature." - Introduction.
