University of Michigan Press ....

Here's why:

* MORE BOOKS - more individual titles from which to
choose than any other store in middle-USA.
* BETTER BOOKS - a carefully-selected and discrimi-
nating stock of the good and great books of this and all
the past centuries of publishing, representing most
fields of man's search for knowledge and self-expres-
sion.
* MORE PAPER-BOUNDS - at Bob Marshall's you'll find
one of the largest selections of quality paper-backs any-
where . . . plus a huge selection of low-priced paper
books.
* MORE BARGAINS - there is always a sale at Bob Mar-
shalls. Usually the sale is of considerable proportions
(as it is right now) with several thousand different titles
on sale table display. These sale tables are loaded with
the cream of currently-available offerings of publisher's
overstocks and remainders, all marked way down. The
sale tables at Bob Marshall's change, rapidly, with new
stock added every week of the year.
" MORE USED BOOKS - our South Wall is a good used
book shop in itself, a shop within a shop. All the used
titles at Bob Marshall's are modestly-priced. The origin-
al price is listed also. If the title is out-of-print that in-
formation is furnished too.
* MORE BROWSING- browsing is an integral and natu
ral part of the bookish atmisphere at Bob Marshall's.
Comfortable chairs, lots of room, and a lack of high-
pressure (or even low-pressure) selling tactics back
up this invitation. You are always welcome, even dur-
ing the so-called textbook rush, to come browsing here.
You will never be made uncomfortable or out-of-place
if you do not choose to buy ... assuming you can resist
the blandishments and temptations of a fabulous stock.
It is not an overstatement to suggest that browsing at
Bob Marshall's is an essential part of your univerity ex-
perience.
* MORE HOURS - for your convenience and especially
for your browsing pleasure, Bob Marshall's is open six
days of every week from 9 A.M. to 10 P.M. Closed Sun-
days.
* MORE SERVICES -- our staff is a full-time, professiona
staff of experienced book people whose competence is
accompanied by an almost "missionary" zeal for good
books. We can obtain any book you want, regardless of
the country of origin, whether in print, or out-of-print.
Gift-wrapping and/or wrapping-for-mailing at no
charge.
* LESS ETC. - because this is a book store, believing in
the efficacy and the viability of the world of books, you
will find no supplies, no sweat shirts, no mish-mash .. .
nothing but books plus a few accesories like book plates
and art prints.

As booksellers and because we believe in the viability of good and great
books we are delighted to solute and to high-light the expansion and de-
velopment of one of the great university presses-our own right here on
the University of Michigan campus.
* Here are some meritorious new titles:

LEON TROTSKY

THE HISTORY OF THE
RUSSIAN REVOLUTION
The most remarkable piece of writing, the most important
historical record, of the Soviet's start. As a record and
an interpretation of events which shook the world, this
work has enduring value. Translated by Max Eastman,
this brilliant volume has been out-of-print for many
years, commanding handsome prices whenever a copy
could be found. This one-volume edition $1 50
is the complete 1360 pages work.

HERE ISA NEW AND EXCITING SERIES OF QUAL-
TY PAPER BACK TITLES EXCLUSIVELY IN THE
FIELD OF DRAMA AND THE THEATER*...
This complete list of titles presently available speaks for it-
self. Here careful selection and astute editorship makes avail-
able to the contemporary reader (in attractive format and
at equally attractive price) titles which generally have been
inaccessible, if obtainable at all.
VOLUMES OF CRITICISM
George Bernard Show THE QUINTESSENCE OF IBSENISM. This quite possibly is the
most penetrating essay ever written about Ibsen. Quite probably this volume contains
more of Show's own basic philosophy than any other single work by GBS. One of the few
absolute "musts" in the literature of the drama. A landmark, but not a monument, it is
Clive, cogent, pertinent. .95
G. K. Chesterton GEORGE BERNARD SHAW. "This book is what everybody expected
it to be: the best work of literary art I have yet provoked. It is a fascinating portrait study;
and I am proud to have been the printer's model."-GBS. "Anything that Chesterton
wrote is worth reading, and Chesterton writing on Shaw is a classic occasion of criticism."
- Lionel Trilling. .95
Harold Clurman THE FERVENT YEARS. A history of the Group Theatre and its influ-
ence. A graphic record of one of the most important periods of the American Theater. A
new introduction and concluding chapter prepared especially for this edition by the
quthor. 1.35
Henry James THE SCENIC ART. 32 essays on the English, French, and American
theater, actors, and playwrights from 1872 to 1901. The theatrical criticism of Henry
James is beginning to receive the recognition it deserves. The reviews he wrote in this
period have the accuracy and the "awareness" which made him a great novelist; in them
one senses what the theater actually was, and what it would become. But James's great-
est value is in what he has to say to this generation. An indispensable 416-page
edition. 1.35
PAPERS ON PLAYMAKING, edited by Brander Matthews. Essays on playwriting by Lope
de Vega, Arthur Pinero, W. S. Gilbert, Augier, Sardou, Dumas, Sarcey, Bronson Howard,
Goldoni, Coquelin, Legouve, and Goethe. 320 pages. 1.35
Henri Fluchere SHAKESPEARE AND THE ELIZABETHANS. In his foreward to this
volume T. S. Eliot writes: "I am not acquainted with any recent English work which serves
the same need as this of M. Fluchere-not only giving us a conspectus of Shakespeare's
drama as a whole, but exhibiting that drama in its relation to the other masterpieces of
the Elizabethan theatre, and taking account of recent studies of English Critics. . . ." F. R.
Leavis warmly commends this volume, saying, "As a compendium of the relevant knowl-
edge and thought and a provocative discussion, the book is of the greatest use to the
university student. I know of no comparable book to recommend." 1.25
HAZLITT ON THEATRE, edited by William Archer and Robert Lowe and with an Intro-
duction by William Archer. Never before published in America this is a remarkable
survey and study of the early 19th century-its theater and actors. 1.25
William Archer MASKS OR FACES? and Denis Diderot THE PARADOX OF ACT.
ING. A reprinting in one volume of two elusive classics on the art of acting, with an
introduction by Lee Strasberg. 1.25
Harley Granville-Barker ON DRAMATIC METHOD. Master of the whole of all the
.theatrical trades-actor, playwright, director, critic, and scholar, here is his delightful,
pregnant, graceful "rediscovery of the laws of the theater." This is the fruit of the
author's long discipleship, scholarship, and thinking. For every actor and playwright to
cherish, a basic text for every student and lover of the drama. I__ _ .95
Harley Granville-Baker PREFACE TO HAMLET. The longest and the most famous
(also the most trenchant) of the Granville-Barker "Prefaces." 288 pages. 1.25

JULES MICHELET
JOAN OF ARC

A brilliant new translation by Albert Guerard
of the great_19th century French historian's
classic work-the greatest of the books on
Joan. Edmund Wilson writes, "Michelet had
the novelist's social interest and grasp of
character, the poet's imagination$'7
and passion .. an artist as well
as a thinker."
GAIUS VALERIUS CATULLUS
The Complete Poetry
As fresh today as when they were written
'midst the noise and confusion of the last-
days of the Republic, Catullus wrote as no
Roman had ever written before-of lovesand
hate, high and low, friend and enemy, of the
colorful, amusing, and sometimes infuriating
life of Rome in the days of Caesar. A ndw
translation with Introduction and Notes by
Frank O. Copley, Prof. of Latin, Univ. of
Michigan, brilliantly recreates the frankness
and the sincerity, the beauty and the raw-
ness of the work which like much $ 75
modern poetry was often avant-
garde.

Aubrey's Brief Lives
Edited by Oliver Lawson Dick L
Forward by Edmund Wilson
Here are the men behind the legends-
Shakespeare, Raleigh, Wolsey, More, Sidney,
and many others brought to life by the pen
of a 17th Century master gossip, journalist,
antiquarian. Bawdy, humorous, full of gusto,
these lives have been looted by scholars for
centuries. This first American edition in-
cludes a hundred-page biography 5
