Ms Smith has compiled a volume with magazine extracts, cards, et al, with a focus on books, authors, characters in books, types of books, all primarily of a religious nature. She begins her book with a quote of Richard de Bury, "Books are Masters who instruct us without rods or ferrules, without words or anger, without bread or money. If you approach them, they are not ASLEEP, if you seek them, they do not HIDE, if you blunder, they do not SCOLD, if you are ignorant, they do not LAUGH at you."

Words still true today.
