Portraits and Principles of the World’s Great Men and Women
Some images from Portraits and Principles of the World’s Great Men and Women with Practical Lessons on Successful life by over Fifty leading Thinkers, designed and arranged by William C. King, Springfield, Massachusetts, USA, 1897. I bought my copy at Olivia’s Bookshop in Picton, Ontario, in May 2007.
The portraits in the book are grouped; I have scanned the entire page, but I can make individual portraits available at slightly higher resolution if it is useful. Ask by emailing me or by using the comment link on the appropriate image.
