Description

As of November 17, 2012 a WorldCat search could find no copies in any library in the world of this 10th edition of Reade's classic work. Only 8 libraries had a copy of the 16th edition and 6 libraries had a copy of the Eckler 12th edition.

In the "Introduction" to the 1948 edition J. M. Robertson writes  that "Winwoode  Read's one abiding work, "The Martydom of Man," has a twofold fame, at once for its continuous impact on two generations of readers and for its steady success in the face of bitterly or contemptuously hostitle literary and newspaper press. Without a word of respectable literary approval, without an advertisement by the publishers, it has made its way from the years of publication, and it has gone on selling for more than sixty years, edition following edition up to the present. There must have been some principle of vitality in a book to give it such a career."

In addition to Robertson's comments one should note that this book was recommended by none other than Sherlock Holmes to Dr. Watson. "Let me recommend this book -- one of the most remarkable ever penned. It is Winwoode Reade's 'Martyrdom of Man.' I shall be back in an hour." Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, "The Sign of the Four,"
