Publisher's Weekly Review

Several reissues make a reappearance this season. Leading the list is a facsimile edition of Miracle on 34th Street by Valentine Davies. The handsome volume re-creates the 1947 edition with heavy cream-colored paper and a font that emulates the original hot-metal type. (Oct.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
