Item Description: Trübner & Co., London, 1872. Book Condition: Very Good. First Edition. 8vo. viii, 544 pages. Publisher's original green cloth tooled and titled in gilt to spine. Ownership inscription to front endpaper. Small spot to front board, minor shelf wear and foxing to final leafs, otherwise in very good and original condition, bright, clean, with solid spine. A pleasing, exceedingly scarce volume. Both viscerally contested and exuberantly applauded, immediately upon publication, and for years to follow, this revolutionary and once radical book is seldom seen today, yet is replete with subjects still pertinent, these being the role of Islam, the history of the slave trade, the evolution of mankind, as well as the impact of war, religion, and liberty. Reade's work became reputed as a sort of "substitute bible for secularists," attempting to trace the development of Western civilization in terms analogous to those used in the natural sciences, also presenting philosophies in support of political liberalism and social Darwinism. The secular "universal" history of the Western world, is divided into four chapters titled as follows. "War" discusses the imprisonment of men's bodies, "Religion" that of their minds, "Liberty" likens a history of European politics and intellect, and finally, "Intellect" puts forth a theory on the origin and development of the universe. The concluding chapter provoked enormous controversy, and as such, the book was condemned by several magazines, owing to Reade's "outspoken attack on Christian dogma". Immediately after its release, in 1872 William Gladstone, the former British Prime Minister, denounced the work as one of several "irreligious works" which also included works by Auguste Comte, Herbert Spencer, and David Friedrich Strauss. On the other hand, the book "drew attention to the immense tale of suffering and waste involved in the theory of evolution". V. S. Pritchett lauded The Martyrdom of Man as "the one, the outstanding, dramatic, imaginative historical picture of life, to be inspired by Victorian science". Since Reade had, by Victorian standards, a relatively sympathetic account of African history, the book was also approvingly cited by W. E. B. Du Bois in his books The Negro (1915) and The World and Africa (1947). English-born South African politician and businessman, Cecil Rhodes said that the book "made me what I am". Other admirers included H. G. Wells, Sir Winston Churchill, Harry Johnston, George Orwell, Susan Isaacs, A. A. Milne and his son Christopher Robin, and Michael Foot. In "The Sign of the Four" Holmes describes it as "one of the most remarkable books ever penned". Bookseller Inventory # 025404
