I own a copy of the 1945 Classics Club, "Marcus Aurelius and His Times." I'm reporting here that I finished reading the first part of the book, "Meditations." It's not easy reading. Often I read the same section or page more than once to see if I would get a better understanding with a second reading.

My father had the entire Classics Club series in the family library. My earliest reading memories are from this series, from around 1963 on. After his death in 1973, the books were divided up, and this one came with me.

This is a wonderful book with an interesting assortment of short mystery and detective stories. As this book was published in 1928, all of the stories were written before that date, many of them centuries earlier. It included numerous works by famous authors such as Edgar Allan Poe, Mark Twain, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Voltaire, Alexandre Dumas, Victor Hugo, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Rudyard Kipling, and many more, both famous and not so famous. Almost all of the stories were unknown to me, so it was a joy to read, and also to find so many good stories in one volume. This compilation also included several stories which were attributed to French or British prison records, criminal records, chronicles, and biographies. It was interesting to compare the various writing styles as well as the historical aspects of each story. It was well worth reading.… (més)
