The Harvard Classics series is an incredible collection of the most important literary works, compiled by Charles Eliot (1834 – 1926), then president of Harvard University. Eliot stated that a liberal arts education could be supplemented by reading 15 minutes a day from classic works stored on a five foot shelf. For this reason, the series is also known as the Five Foot Shelf.
The second volume contains works by Plato, Epictetus, Marcus Aurelius, and commentary by George Long. A table of contents is included for easier navigation.
