GERALD MASSEY - I have written other books, but this I look on as the exceptional labour which has made my life worth living. Comparatively speaking, " A Book of the Beginnings" (London,... More > 1881) was written in the dark, "The Natural Genesis" (London, 1883) was written in the twilight, whereas" Ancient Egypt" has been written in the light of day. The earlier books were met in England with the truly orthodox conspiracy of silence. Nevertheless, four thousand volumes have got into circulation somewhere or other up and down the reading world, where they are slowly working in their unacknowledged way. Probably the present book will be appraised at home in proportion as it comes back piecemeal from abroad, from Germany, or France, or maybe from the Country of the Rising Sun. To all dear lovers of the truth the writer now commends the verifiable truths that wait for recognition in these pages.< Less
