from the calamities -
ties of the war which conquered the
South , all democrats , and many conservative
vative men in the North , opposed with
all their might the grant by the power
of arms of equal suffrage to the ox-slave.
All reasonable men saw that it would bo
what it has been amply proven to bo , a
colossal mistake , as a matter of policy ,
and a crime against the country and the
negro himself as well , as a matter of fact.
No sane man doubts the demonstrated
truth about it now. And yet , every man
who then opposed the monstrous device
to perpetuate republican rule over the
subjugated South was proclaimed a
"traitor" and a "rebel. " That big
black chicken long since ' 'came home to
roost , " with the loss to the republican
party of eveiy state in the South , and
much more under a changed public opin
ion in the North which widely execrates
the diabolism that would attempt to
place the Anglo-American white man
under the rule of ignorant negroes.

"The project to publish a work that
should enclose within its covers a 'Li
brary of the World's Best Literature , '
was not entirely novel when it was un
dertaken by the 'International Society'
a few years ago. The manner and ex
tent of the achievement , however , have
not a parallel in the making of books
oven in this book making age. In se
lecting Mr. Charles Dudley Warner for
editor of this work the publishers gave
the best possible guaranty that it would
be worthy of its name , and this assur
ance was strengthened by securing as
his assistants and advisers the most em
inent professors of literature in the uni
versities of America. In two years
these editors , assisted by many other
eminent scholars and specialists and
backed by abundant capital , have pro
duced a work in thirty volumes of about
seven hundred pages each. It is not ex
travagant to call this a library ; for it is
one , and its completeness is something
surprising considering the vast field
which it attempts to cover. The work
is not merely a cyclopedia of the litera
ture of all ages , giving more or less
elaborate reviews of thousands of
books and long extracts from many
hundreds , but it is a dictionary of
authors , giving biographical sketches
and fine portraits of many hundreds of
great authors , while thousands more are
given sufficient space for a biographical
sketch of appropriate length. The whole
work is arranged alphabetically so as to
be of ready reference value and it is il
lustrated and illuminated by thousands
of pictures in all the art of the best il
lustrations. If one has a fine collection
of books the Warner Library will bo its
crowning glory and if one has no library
the Warner Library will constitute one. "

"My confidence in books sold on any
thing approaching the subscription pro
cess has been so frequently abused and
I have been fooled so often by some
high-sounding name connected with a
book proposed to be published that I
declined for some time to purchase 'The
Library of the World's Best Literature. "
Meeting my friend Charles Dudley
Warner in Hartford during the summer
of 185)7 ) I asked him if he was really de
voting his time and energies to the sii-
pervision of this great work. Upon his
assurance that it was receiving his every
care I purchased it. It is about the
best investment I ever made in adding
to my private library. It contains the
cream of literature of all ages and all
countries and the selections that have
been given show that the distinguished
gentlemen who have had the prepara
tion of the material have done their
duty faithfully and with a judgment
that could only bo exercised by men of
literary tastes and scholarly minds. "

"I have a copy of Warner's Library.
The work is an ornament to any library
and it gives most admirably selected
passages from the immense mass of the
world's literature from the earliest
times. It is fitly called a library. The
possessor of it can dispense with almost
all other books. " J. M. Woolworth ,
ex-president of American Bar Associa
"I have the '
just purchased 'Library
of the World's Best Literature , ' and
think it a very valuable work without
which no general collection of books can
bo entirely satisfactory. It makes all
other worlcs available. It is an index to
the great thoughts of all ages. " J.Sterl-
