    Charles W. Eliot, an American academic who became Harvard's president in 1869, was instrumental in raising the once provincial college to the most prestigious university of the United States. Eliot not only served the longest term as president in the university's history, but also edited a collection of Classic literature that has become a classic in its own right and continues to be reprinted numerous times since the copyright dating from the early 1900s. Eliot announces in the Editor's Introdu Charles W. Eliot, an American academic who became Harvard's president in 1869, was instrumental in raising the once provincial college to the most prestigious university of the United States. Eliot not only served the longest term as president in the university's history, but also edited a collection of Classic literature that has become a classic in its own right and continues to be reprinted numerous times since the copyright dating from the early 1900s. Eliot announces in the Editor's Introduction (Volume 50): “My purpose in selecting The Harvard Classics was to provide the literary materials from which a careful and persistent reader might gain a fair view of the progress of man observing, recording inventing, and imagining from the earliest historical times to the close of the nineteenth century. Within the limits of fifty volumes, containing 22,000 pages, I was to provide the means of obtaining such a knowledge of ancient and modern literature as seems essential to the twentieth-century idea of a cultivated man.” Although we have now entered twenty-first century, this remarkable series remains a valuable resource for the persistent reader who desires to become familiar with the great classics of the world. Naturally, There were many works that Eliot could not include, but he succeeded in publishing the most essential fictional, non-fictional, dramatic, poetic, philosophical, historical and religious texts to impart a thorough grounding in the classics of the liberal arts, both ancient and modern, conservative and controversial. Alas, after several years ploughing away I still have to finish four or five volumes, but since I'm near the end, I thought it was time I write a review: as a collection, it is worth the full five stars. As far as I am aware, reprints of the Harvard Classics are basically facsimiles of the original 1900s printings. Each section in every volume features a small introduction / biography of the authors and the documents featured. Some volumes also contain explanatory footnotes with certain texts, but unfortunately, not for all of them. While the Harvard Classics contains excellent documents / reprints, etc., if you wish for a more in-depth academic explanation of a work with updated translations, reading lists, etc., I would recommend looking up individual titles in the Oxford's World Classics Series, nevertheless, to have all these major texts compiled in one collection together with a practical index in Volume 50, a Bonus Volume of Lectures, plus a separate helpful “15 Minutes a Day” Reading Guide that might interest younger readers and help them explore these works, the Harvard Classics Five-Foot Shelf of Books is still worth the five stars. If you are the reader who desires to build a well-stocked private library this is well worth the investment. It is beyond the scope of a single review to examine each and every work, so I shall provide a list each of the volumes and their texts to display the wealth of information this collection provides: Volume 1 Benjamin Franklin: “His Autobiography” John Woolman: “The Journal of John Woolman” William Penn: “Some Fruits of Solitude, In Reflections and Maxims, Part I” and “More Fruits of Solitude, Being the Second Part of Reflections and Maxims.” Volume 2 Plato: “The Apology”, “Phaedo”, “Crito” Epictetus: “The Golden Sayings of Epictetus” Marcus Aurelius: “The Meditations of Marcus Aurelius” Volume 3 Francis Bacon: “Essays or Counsels – Civil and Moral” (59 essays in all), “The New Atlantis” John Milton's Prose: “Areopagitica”, “Tractate on Education” Thomas Browne: “Religio Medici” Volume 4 The Complete Poems in English, John Milton.

    This set of Classics was to have made a liberal education available to anyone who cared to follow the reading course set forward by Dr. Eliot. The world has changed since Eliot's first publication, but the classics of European literature endure.

    My wife bought this set of 50 books for me from a used bookshop as a Christmas gift in 1996.

Almost 15 years later I am still glad to have read them even though only the highlights stand out and many of the less impressive books have faded from memory.

However, it was a very enjoyable pastime for almost 5 years of reading, mostly early mornings before work. Now that the books are available online, I would recommend reading on your kindle or e-reader and use links to the internet for commentary and clarification. Many of the books are rather difficult reading and some kind of explanation is helpful in understanding beyond the included readers' guide.

    The five-foot shelf of books is something to "read in," not to finish reading. It is very canonical and a bit old-fashioned, but also quirky. The five-foot shelf of books is something to "read in," not to finish reading. It is very canonical and a bit old-fashioned, but also quirky.

    It opened my eyes in so many ways. I loved discovering the sources of so many cultural and literary references we still use to this day. I gained perspective from the overview of the progression of human thought, especially that which affected Europe and the US. I discovered hidden gems of thought and literature that I would've never casually come across. I absolutely loved the biographies and autobiographies, as well as the poetry. I know this collection is limited, but it is a great spring boa It opened my eyes in so many ways.

    I have long wanted to read these, and 2016 was the year. It's hard to judge this selection as I would a normal book. Some days were enjoyable or enlightening, other days were torture. Some of the science selections are outdated--there's been a lot of science in the past 100-plus years. At any rate, I can now check reading this 5 foot bookshelf off my bucket list.
