The web makes finding reference works rather simple, and Bartleby.com has been kind enough over the past few years to put more than a healthy offering of their publications online at no cost to voracious readers and the generally curious. On this corner of their site they have brought together over one hundred popular nonfiction works. Visitors can meander through "The World's Famous Orations", edited by someone who knew a bit about the topic, one William Jennings Bryan. Other volumes include the collected works of Francis Bacon, John Stuart Mill's "Autobiography", and Thomas Ã Kempis' devotional work, "The Imitation of Christ". It's quite a nice collection of works, and one that could be recommended to others looking for basic editions of some rather important and valuable pieces of writing.
