The Book of Man by William J. Bennett
Befitting many of its classic authors, it is a beautifully bound and typeset book. The heavy paper with crinkled edges could make me imagine I'm reading it by a massive stone fireplace 200 years ago. But Bennett's introductions to each writing bring the reader solidly into the 21st century--reinforcing the timelessness of the uplifting messages.
