Description

Excerpt from Words of Life's Last Years: Containing Christian Emblems; Metrical Prayers and Sacred Poems, Translated From Foreign Writers The old Greek adage, A great book a great evil, was not much heeded - as their folios largely testify either by the Fathers of the Church, the schoolmen, or the Puritan divines. Great books, however, besides their heavy taxes on time, are very hard to lift, and not less hard (especially for the short-sighted) to place conveniently. Little books, on the other hand, have the disadvantage of being very easily mislaid, and not at all easily found. But, in our day, there is less complaint of the bulk, or of the smallness, than of the unending multitude. One does, indeed, Wish, that all volumes which teach nothing, or worse than nothing, could be made blank 3 a process Which might decimate some libraries.
