About the Book

The Education of Henry Adams is the autobiography of the Bostonian Henry Adams. As he approached his seventieth birthday when "the mind wakes to find itself looking blankly into the void of death," Adams wrote and privately printed 100 copies of his "Education", a reflection on the incredible events of the 19th century. Adams meditates on his sense of disorientation with the scientific and technological expansion over his lifetime. After his death the book was commercially published, going on to become a best-seller and to win the Pulitzer Prize.

Table of Contents

"This volume, written in 1905, as a sequel to the same author's 'Mont-Saint-Michel and Chartres,' was privately printed ... in 1906 ... The Massachusetts historical society now publishes the 'Education' as it was printed in 1907, with only such marginal corrections as the author made."
Editor's pref., signed: Henry Cabot Lodge.
