Odd Collection

(4,5 Sterne)

This set has a mix of stories that includes short, very dated morality tales and plain entertainment. The morality tales are of historical interest...how we change in our thinking. The others are simple entertainments. All seem to be the journeyman work of writers for the periodicals of their day and needing to make a living. No fault there.
