Foreword by Henry L. Drake. With illustrations in color by J. Augustus Knapp.
"To avoid a future of war, crime, and bankruptcy, the individual must begin to plan his own destiny, and the best source of the necessary information comes down to us through the writings of the ancients. We have tried to select the most useful and practical elements of classical idealism, combining them into single volume. The greatest knowledge of all time should be available to the twentieth century not only in the one shilling editions of the Bohn Library in small type and shabby binding, but in a book that would be a monument, not merely a coffin." - Manly P. Hall
Manly P. Hall's magnum opus, and a bestseller in its field.
