Reader's note

Our vintage books make beautiful literary gifts. The Maxims of Methuselah is a delightful dose of nostalgia and a lovely gift for you or your favourite bookworm. The following book is, so far as we know, the only authentic rendering into the English language of the three hundred and thirty parables attributed to Methuselah. The authorship of these precepts was first traced to the aged patriarch by the cabalists, after having found by a transposition of the letters of his name the anagram, “he who prophesied in parables.” This book contains the advice given by the Patriarch in his nine hundred and sixty ninth year to his great grandson at his coming of age. The perfect gift for all lovers of classic literature and rare, vintage books.
