Gunsaulus", "Robert Francis Harper", "Richard Green Moulton", "Hamilton W. Mabie", 7¾x9¾. FRANK WAKELEY GUNSAULUS (1856-1921), a Methodist minister in Chicago, became a famed lecturer on diverse topics, very much in demand on the Chatauqua circuit. In 1890 he delivered "the million dollar sermon", inspiring meatpacking mogul Phillip Armour to endow what would become the Illinois Institute of Technology. Gunsaulus became first president of the school, then known as the Armour Institute, in 1893. Gunsaulus wrote 15 books and many articles on poetry, music and history as well as religion. ROBERT FRANCIS HARPER (1864-1914) was a groundbreaking scholar of Semitic languages. He translated many cuneiform texts from Assyria and Babylonia, and published a complete translation of Hammurabi's legal code. He also promoted the study of Hebrew with a correspondence school and summer school, with an audience which included Christian scholars and ministers interested in closer study of the roots of their faith. RICHARD GREEN MOULTON (1849-1924) was a literary scholar and anthologist who wrote and lectured about Shakespeare, classical drama, and Biblical literature. HAMILTON WRIGHT MABIE (1846-1919) was a prolific essayist and anthologist, and the author of a literature textbook which went through many editions. Mabie, like Moulton, authored some children's versions of classic stories. Adhesive residue on left edge. Otherwise fine condition.
