Book Description Forgotten Books. Paperback. Book Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. Paperback. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.5in.Excerpt from One Hundred Books Famous in English Literature: With Facsimiles of the Title-Pages These books must of necessity be national books; for fame, which is essentially the highest gift of which man has the giving, cannot be conferred ex cept by a public voice. Fame dwells upon the lips of men. It is not that memorable books must all be peoples books, though the greatest are such - the Book of Common Prayer, the Bible, Shake speare; but those which embody some rare intel lectual power, or illuminate some seldom visited tract of the spirit, or merely display some peculiar taste in learning or pastime, must yet have some thing racial in them, something public, to secure their hold against the detaching power of time; they must be English books, not in tongue only, but body and soul. They are not less the books of a nation because they are remote, superfine, un common. Such are the books of the poets - the Faerie Queene; books of the nobles - Arcadia; books of the scholar - the Anatomy of Melan choly. These books open the national genius as truly, kind by kind, as books of knowledge exhibit the nations advancement in learning, stage by stage, when new sciences are brought to the birth.
