Excerpt from Counsel Upon the Reading of Books Readers existed before books were made. The first rude writings that were cut on the faces of smooth rocks, or inscribed on tablets of clay, or traced on bits of skin, implied the presence of people in the world who were able to decipher the letters and interpret their meaning. As the number of these people increased, and as they learned to read more easily, the importance of writing as a means of instructing them or deceiving them, of enlightening their minds or affecting their feelings, of influencing them in one way or another, emerged on the surface of affairs more and more clearly: an open door to power, or to usefulness, stood before those who were ambitious to rule, or willing to serve, the inner life of mankind. Because there were readers in the world, certain men became authors. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
