From the Preface to all volumes:
"Since the 1970s I have pursued three separate but overlapping
and sometimes simultaneous careers: (1) philosopher / writer /
teacher / historian of the long nineteenth century, 1789-1914;
(2) editor / translator / photographer / publisher / biographer /
encyclopedist; (3) cataloging librarian / rare books and special
collections librarian / historian of medicine. Somehow these
three vocations have garnered me some acclaim, even an
entry in Who's Who in America. Each of them has resulted
in some published or presented works. Because these works
have been scattered in a wide variety of venues, some of
which have gone out of print or have otherwise become
generally unavailable - and of course with the oral
presentations being gone as soon as they are given -
I have thought it wise to select, epitomize, and bring
them together in one place - here. Thus, what follows
is what I consider to be the most important of my
shorter works."
