During the summer of 1948 I was privileged, while travelling in Germany for the American Friends Service Committee, to pick up a sheaf of gleanings with regard to studies in the field of Renaissance and Reformation. First a word with regard to works which appeared during or directly after the war. Every college library in this country should seek to obtain Die neue Propylaenweltgeschichte, hrsg. Willy Andreas, vol. III, Das Zeitalter der Entdeckungen, der Renaissance und der Glaubenskämpfe (Berlin, 1941).
