brave and bumptious

While searching through Archive.org, I stumbled upon an insanely huge book title:

  • Spense-Jones, H.D.M., ed. 1889. Thirty thousand thoughts, being extracts covering a comprehensive circle of religious and allied topics, gathered from the best available sources, of all ages and all schools of thought; with suggestive and seminal headings and homiletical and illuminative framework: the whole arranged upon a scientific basis. With classified and thought-multiplying lists, comparative tables, and elaborate indices, alphabetical, topical, textual, and scriptural. New York: Funk & Wagnalls.

Did I mention that it’s 6 volumes?!  I think I’ll take a pass on that one (or, those ones).
