Robert Green Ingersoll was an American lawyer and orator (1833-1899) who commanded an Illinois volunteer (Union) cavalry regiment in the Civil War and was Attorney General for the State of Illinois, but he became most famous as "The Great Agnostic," attacking popular Christian beliefs in his lectures and writings. Though he scandalized the orthodox clergy, Ingersoll had his own humanistic creed: the belief that happiness is the only good and that the way to be happy is to make others so. In his lecture "Liberty," he said, "I am the inferior of any man whose rights I trample under foot." In this book, he explains his reasons for discarding the superstition of religion. 576 pages (the last six pages are headed "index" with "subject" and "page" subheadings, and contain blank ruled pages for creating your own index); red leatherette boards with gilt print on spine; boards and text are warped from dampstain (darkened waterstain is visible on the front endpapers, at the hinge), back board is badly rubbed and scratched, corners and spine ends are chipped and spine is reinforced with clear book tape; binding is good, text is unmarked and in very good reading condition.
