MARK ANTONY DELIVERING THE FUNERAL ORATION OVER THE BODY OF JULIUS CAESAR
CAESAR'S name has stood through all the ages as the embodiment of imperial power. His untimely end, after reaching the pinnacle
of earthly glory, is one of the great tragedies of history. The picture herewith, from Ridpath's History, is but ONE of TWO
THOUSAND in the complete work, and serves to illustrate but ONE event out of all the THOUSANDS which make up the
history of every empire, kingdom, principality, and Nation, all accurately and entertainingly told in the world-famed publication,
Ridpath's History of the World
Dr. John Clark Ridpath is universally recognized as the world's greatest historian. He was the friend and advocate of the masses of
the common people. In 189G he was the democratic nominee for congress in his home' district and received the warm support of the
Leader of the Party. Hundreds have already availed themselves of this remarkable opportunity to secure the greatest History of
the World ever written. We have only a few sets of the last edition remaining, which we offer at a low price and on easy terms.
