Publisher's Blurb:

"SURPRISE LIBRARY ALL POPULAR LOVE STORIES. Here is a list of one hundred titles, comprising the pick of the better-known love stories published in America.

We feel certain that the reading public has been waiting for just such a library of clean, decent fiction. These books are frankly fiction. They make no claim to having educational value, except in so far as all decent, clean, well written literature is educational. The reader who makes a habit of getting entertainment from the books in this list will at the same time be in the company of good English. In this respect these books compare favorably with anything that is published in book form. From a standpoint of interest, they really surpass most of the novels that are being offered between cloth covers at very much higher prices.

What we are trying to impress you, the reader, with is that this is no collection of cheap, trashy, sexy stories. It is a line of worth-while books.
