One of my great joys growing up was working on the "Saturday Evening Post" double-acrostic with my father. We made a good team -- he had an extensive reference collection and knowledge that was complementary to mine. I was more in tune with "current pop culture" and able to make intuitive leaps. So when I got older, I made sure to start my own reference library. This volume fits right in. ( )

Back before the internet, back before Wikipedia, there was the NY Public Library Desk Reference. Such a wealth of information, important, obscure, and miscellaneous! I've never used mine, and it's sat on a shelf for decades. Time to pass it along.
