Excerpt from Indian Captivity: A True Narrative of the Capture of Rev. O. M. Spencer, by the Indians; In the Neighborhood of Cincinnati The series of The Lakeside Classics, of which this is the fifteenth volume, occupies an unique position in the history of publishing. The original purpose of publication can best be expressed by quoting the following extract from the introduction of the first volume, a reprint of "The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin." "This little volume goes forth as a modest protest against the present craze for so-called 'editions de luxe' - books printed in unreadable type on hand-made paper, on hand presses, and sold at prices prohibitory to all except the rich.... In opposition, this volume stands for the machine-made book. Its paper, its typesetting, its presswork, and its binding are all products of the very latest labor-saving machinery. It aims to be readable rather than eccentric; plain rather than decorative; tasteful rather than unique; useful rather than useless; withal to hold to the essence of the art of the old masters of book-making, and not to copy the mechanical shortcomings which they, themselves, strove so hard to overcome."
