In 1909, the President of Harvard University, Dr. Eliot, made claims that one could get a quality education by reading from a 5-foot shelf of classics for 15 minutes a day. Collier & Son challenged Dr. Eliot to create such a collection, the first collection of which was published in 1909. This is the 1917 printing of that collection. New York: Collier & Son, 1917.

The set is 7" across and is 8.25" tall.

As these books are over 100 years old please expect that they show a small bit of age-related wear.

The photo props are not included.
