Stories by Foreign Authors

Stories by Foreign Authors  (1898) 

Fifty-one tales in ten volumes, comprising a careful selection of the best Continental short stories by contemporary or nearly contemporary writers, published by Charles Scribner's Sons, New York



These fifty-one tales comprise a careful selection of the best Continental short stories by contemporary or nearly contemporary writers, and the ten volumes appropriately round out the unique idea begun in the "Stories by American Authors" and "Stories by English Authors." As may be seen by the following complete list, each volume is a collection of masterpieces and represents admirably the more recent achievements in this branch of literature of the nation for which it stands. It would be difficult to find anywhere so much good fiction of such wide variety in the same compass.
