Title: The Concise Dictionary of National Biography. Being an Epitome of the Twentieth Century D.N.B. Down to the End of 1950. Part II. 1901-1950
Description: London England, Oxford University Press, 1974. Reprint, Binding: Cloth, Very Good/Good. 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 0198653026 Hardback Hardback. Reading marks to D/J. Mark to front D/J. Price clipped to D/J. The concise D.N.B., containing epitomes of all the lives in the main work and its twentieth-century supplements, was originally published in 1920, in one volume. New editions, incorporating subsequent twentieth-century decades, were issued in 1930 and 1939. In 1952, to relieve the public from the need to buy a new copy of the whole work each time a new decade was incorporated, the book was split into two volumes. The first containing epitomes of lives in the main work down to 1900, has been available since then. This second volume contains epitomes of lives in all the twentieth-century supplements from 1901-1950. It also contains an index of select subjects: this is a new feature which should add considerably to the usefulness of this volume as a reference book. 528 pp.
