Philip Ward, A Lifetime's Reading: 500 Great Books to Be Enjoyed Over 50 Years [1982]

    1016 entries: 872 monographical, 144 otherwise
    Unranked—arranged topically

    Philip Ward's A Lifetime's Reading: The World's 500 Greatest Books, as the author notes, is "divided into fifty chapters, or 'years', to give the reader who requires it a discipline according to which he can pace himself." As with most of the other book-as-list projects documented here (Powys, Van Doren, Fadiman, Dirda, Newman) the work or works noted in the section headings within each chapter do not always capture which works in particular Ward recommends; or, rather, in the section text, he recommends further books as clearly as he does that or those in the section heading. Again, we don't want to be too liberal in the inclusion of texts or misrepresent Ward's recommendations; but at Greater Books, for these books-as-lists, the final result should clearly represent what's written in the whole book, not just what's included in chapter or section headings.

    The biographical blurb included in A Lifetime's Reading leaves us unsurprised that Ward's list is one of the few truly-global selections of "great books". A librarian who worked for a variety of institutions in England, Indonesia, Libya, and elsewhere, he wrote not just about literature but also Tripoli: A Portrait of a City and other travel books as well as The Book of Common Fallacies: Falsehoods, Misconceptions, Flawed Facts, and Half-Truths That Are Ruining Your Life.
