Description

"The object of this work is to present the Course of Freethought throughout the Civilized World for the last Four Centuries, from the time of Columbus and Bruno to the time of Ingersoll."

"It is a radical Historic Record of the greatest Developments of the Human Race, revealing Freethought as an Intellectual, Moral, Literary, Social, Industrial, and Political Movement, and showing what Freethought is in itself, how manifold are its influences and with what hope and promise we can hail its future triumph. It contais the Greatest Thoughts and the Greatest Deeds of the Greatest Men in one Harmonius and Magnificent Whole, a vivid picture of man's sublimest evolution, with the added glory of Women's Emancipation from the chains and slavery of a barbaric creed and church."

"THE FIRST PART of the book deals with Freethought asa Universal Power, asa Spirit, a Method, a prevailing but unorganized Influence in every Department of Human Growth."

"THE SECOND PART deals with Freethought as an Organized Movement, especially in America and Europe; and this history is of equal importance with the first, and should be justly understood and the Pioneers of our work recognized.  Eight Hundred {plus] pages of printed matter and nearly 150 fullpage halftone portaits of the Pioneers of Freedom and the illustrious Reformers who have lived and labored to make this world better."

"More than 100 biographies and in these will be given a picture of Freethought progress which will be most interesting and valuable, for it is in individuals that we find the best interpretations of the age." Quoted from the back cover of the 1891 "Victor Hugo's Oration on Voltaire."

"Four  hundred years of Freethought --- from 1402 to 1892 --- present the most alluring and brilliant pages of human history. Only those who stand at the end of these crowded centuries can realize the advancing greatness of humanity. Never was the picture of Shakspere so glowingly demonstrated: "What a piece of work is man; how noble in reason; how infinite in faculties;  in form and moving how express and admirable; in action how like an angel, in apprehension how like a god." Quoted from the "Introduction."
