The Book Agent; His Book (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Book Agent; His Book HE preface of a good book may be brief; few apologies are required. This work is not a book, but a series of literary etch ings on the landscapes of humanity. These etchings placed in composite arrangement on the mirror of life form a satire which attaches itself to the image of those who look therein. What a picturesque figure in literature il Don Quixote charging upon the windmills! But these etchings impale over against the mind's horizon the figure of a windmill pursuing the Don Quixotes of our modern age. And what man is not a Don Quixote, since the smallest vicissitude of life may change his dearest reality to a mere phantasm, so that his charge is upon the void? In such spirit has our author writ.
