Compiled and Edited by Charles W. Eliot LL D in 1909, the Harvard

Classics is a 51-volume Anthology of classic literature from throughout

the history of western civilization. The set is sometimes called

"Eliot's Five-Foot Shelf."

This e-book is all 51 volumes, the

equivalent of over 20,000 printed pages in one e-book. It is fully

searchable with a completely linked table of contents.

  • This set is identified as being from Golden Deer but the front cover

    says "Book Center" and the publisher is identified in the Kindle Store

    as Arthur Wallens. I mention this because this set of the HARVARD

    CLASSICS is virtually identical to a previous Golden Deer edition (whose

    publisher is identified as Oregan) selling (as of the date of this

    review) for $9.99. It is also identical to a $.99 edition from Eireann

    Press. Therefore, at any given time, you should go with the least

    expensive among them. (There are two other editions, not identical to

    these, I will mention at the end.)

    What the Kindle Store

    description of these sets does not always make clear is that each of

    these 3 provides the original 51-volume set (to which the blurb refers)

    AS WELL AS the 20-volume SHELF OF FICTION (which the blurb may not

    mention) for a total of 71 volumes (reportedly containing 180 works,

    many, but not all, in their entirety). Overall, it is one massive ebook

Thanks Boz.
A lifetime of reading.
Been meaning to read this again thanks Boz!
Brilliant. Thanks, Boz.
Nothing less than 100 years old (the list was compiled in 1909). All the books are freely available from the Gutenberg project.
People will download this simply because of its size. They might start one or two - like the fairy tales, but they will lose interest after half an hour or so.
Voting this HOT is only because it is a lot of stuff for free. But the only book in this load worth reading is Machiavelli's The Prince

Whoever finally approved this ebook didn't do what you did. How utterly unusable just list 1 to whatever as numbers in the table of contents. You does us proud and put to shame those who do no quality check before pushing this out.
Thank you Boz!
Thanks, I've been meaning to read Forces of Matter and The Chemical History of a Candle for ages

Wow. Seriously? Can't believe you actually came out with that drivel. Some of the finest examples of literature dismissed by your good self. Cervantes , Moliere, Descartes, Shakespeare, all not worth reading,. eh? Well done.
HOT by the way.
