Thirty Thousand Thoughts. Being Extracts, Covering a Comprehensive Circle of Religious and Allied Topics.

Author: H. D. M. Spence / Joseph S. Exell / Charles Neil, eds.
Publisher: Kegan Paul and Co.
Publish Date: 1886

Here is the fourth volume of this stupendous work, which is worthy to be ranked with the Great Wall of China, the Colossus of Rhodes, or the Pyramids of Egypt. We could not at first make out the plan; but it begins to dawn upon us. It is very comprehensive when you once comprehend it; and it cannot fall to aid the studies of those who are looking at a subject all round. Our own conviction is that the work is too great to succeed; it will perish under its own weight. Still, it will be of untold value to those who are wise enough to purchase it, and studious enough to consult it, and vigorous enough to digest it. Our marvel is that any publisher should so greatly dare as to issue such a work; the bold firm ought to be rewarded for so brave an action, and we sincerely desire that it may be.
