About the Series:
The University of Life Library was founded to publish a uniform collection of beautiful, heirloom-quality volumes of the great works of politics, philosophy, economics, science and fiction, the reading of which could provide all people not only with great enjoyment but, at minimal expense, with the benefits of a traditional, classical education.
The Library’s titles are chosen to illustrate, reinforce, and promote further inquiry into those concepts and values that originated in the civilizations of ancient Greece and Rome and, being expanded and improved-upon by the greatest minds of Europe and the Americas over many centuries, particularly during the Enlightenment, form the bedrock of Western civilization.
Being the embodiment of the virtues enabling the creation of the United States of America, that nation most influenced by the Enlightenment’s illumination, and founded upon its precepts, each title opens with an illustration of Columbia, based on John Gast’s iconic 1872 painting, American Progress.
Additionally, each title is illustrated with related scenes.
We hope our editions can provide entertainment, education and inspiration to the young and mature alike. We strive to provide a collection of well-loved, widely-varied works that will take pride of place on the bookshelves of families and businesses for generations to come.
“The true university of these days is a collection of books” - Thomas Carlyle
