    The world of books is the most remarkable creation of man

    Nothing else that he builds ever lasts

    Monuments rise, nations perish civilsations fall, civilizations grow old, and die out, and after an era new races build others

    But in the world of books are volumes that have seen this happen again and again and yet live on, still young, telling men's hearts of the hearts of men centuries dead
