Gilbert K. Chesterton

A collection of stories from the master of wit and sarcasm. Stories include: What Is Man?, The Death Of Jean, The Turning-Point Of My Life, How To Make History Dates Stick, The Memorable Assassination, A Scrap Of Curious History, Switzerland, The Cradle Of Liberty, At The Shrine Of St. Wagner, William Dean Howells, English As She Is Taught, A Simplified Alphabet, As Concerns Interpreting The Deity, Concerning Tobacco, The Bee, Taming The Bicycle and, Is Shakespeare Dead? I desperately searched for the illustrations that are in a couple of these stories, but alas, I could only find a few out of the 26 that were supposed to be in ‘How to Make History Dates Stick’. Still, they were worth including because they are funny.
