Excerpt from A Talk About Books: Addressed Originally to the Students of the Central High School, Buffalo

So it is not, in reality, of Books that I wish to speak, but of the contents of Books. It may be well for us to think of Books in that way, as vessels - vehicles - carriers - because it leads us, I am sure, to more clearly classified ideas of them. It puts them all into one category, to begin with, as carriers in the commerce of mind with mind; which instantly suggests that there are divisions of kind in that commerce, very much as there are divisions of kind in the mercantile traffic of the world, and we proceed naturally to some proper assort ing of the mind-matter which Books are carriers for. The division we are likely to recognize first is one that separates all which we commonly describe to ourselvesa; canon A Talk About Books.
