The ManThe latest Project Gutenberg / Distributed Proofreaders release drawn from our collection is The Man: A Story of To-day, by “Aspasia Hobbs,” a pseudonym of Elbert Hubbard.

This is a very unusual book, claiming to contain “Facts, Fancies and Faults Peculiarly its Own; Containing Certain Truths Heretofore Unpublished Concerning Right Relation of the Sexes, etc., etc.” and providing a bit of social satire, a bit of speculation about the life of Shakespeare, a bit of fantasy, and a lot of philosophizing. Because of its eccentric nature, it is perhaps understandable that it was published by J. S. Ogilvie, a name often associated with inexpensive dime novels and popular handbooks (several of which can be found in our collection).

The entire novel can be read online or downloaded through Project Gutenberg. More works by its author can be found in our Hubbard Collection.
