Reader's note

This unique colourful book by Gelett Burgess is a 1914 edition of The Maxims of Noah: Derived from his experience with women both before and after the flood as given in counsel to his son Japhet. Noah, the grandson of Methuselah, was renowned for his wisdom and virtue and was one of the most lovable of the ancient patriarchs. The Book of Genesis paints him as merely an instrument of the wrath of God whereas Hebraic writings are more generous in their treatment of his character. This book translates Noah's maxims into the idiom of the time it was published. He speaks of the ultra-female psychology inherent or latent in all women as being revealed in psychosis. Perhaps intended to be humourous, this is an interesting read with beautiful illustrations and lithographed with Egyptian characters. A gem among a bounty of out of print, rare and stunning vintage books in our second hand bookstore.
