    Default Canon of Humanity ebooks

    Sometime ago I went on a project of compiling a list of all the great and notable books of humankind, starting from the early days onwards. I didn't cover much of the later parts of the 20th century as legally free ebooks (that are out of copyright) are comparatively few: also, there are far more books to cover and not so much of a cohesive canon! This could be attempted at some point however. (I am going to stop at 1922, as books published before 1923 in the United States are typically out of copyright. In the European Union, and Canada, texts written published by authors in their lifetimes and before 1946, are generally out of copyright.

    This post I will call the Library of Alexandria edition, part I, because I will list books written/"published" before 1BC/1AD. I have only typed up a list so far at the moment:I intend to come back to this at some point and insert links to wiki-pages as well as to where free ebooks can be found.

    Some notes:
    Especially with early books, I have had to give approximate dates to works, generally quite conservative. I liked to give a reasonable date for which a work is likely to have existed largely in the form by which it is known today. Sometimes this means an approximation within one or two centuries or decades. In some cases, I have put the "publication" date as the year of the author's death, typically because the work was not published in the author's lifetime and because I don't really like the idea of a posthumous date (if it's on the page, it's in the ether, is essentially my view). I have recorded some works as being by the great authors "Anonymous" or "Unknown" in some cases that may prove controversial with some people: "Anonymous" generally if I accept that the identity of the author is essentially mythological or unknowable, perhaps written by a school of people or a team of editors (in some cases, the texts are commonly accepted as written by different authors); "Unknown" means that there is, theoretically, a prospect of the author of a work being determined at some point in the future.

    As to genres, they are quite bulky and perhaps a little inconsistent: some more accurate description and/or some more nuances could be attempted. (With "Religious" books, although I have dated them, I didn't like to give genre descriptions relating to broad time periods and cultures as with many of the other books). I mostly derived the genres from goodreads, and modified them slightly.

    Some of the works in this table are in peculiar packages: this is derived from a particular ebook I found.
    With wikisource links, it is possible to compile the pages together into a pdf or epub file: this is a little tedious (depending on the exact rules they have, I (or maybe so else could) distribute my own copies of such files via this thread).

    The birth date of Jesus the historical figure (whether 1 BC/1AD, or something alternative, e.g. 7 B.C. to 2 B.C., as we know those years) was the cut-off point for this list.

    That reminds me: I forgot to mention: I didn't include the Jewish Torah in this list as I just lumped it as part of the King James Bible. My full list (which I have in note form from ages ago, as well as the "final" form of the ebooks I think includes deuterocanonical books and one or two Jewish teacher sayings books (maybe).

    As it is, choosing which version of the bible to include as part of a list is controversial of course, and additionally, many of them are in copyright. The bible may be the world's most stolen book, but of course, we shouldn't add to that. The King James variation was the "obvious" choice to me because the translation itself has had a significant effect on the English language, at the very least.

    Interestingly, the rights to distribute the King James Bible variation is prerogative of the of the monarch of the United Kingdom, making it *technically* illegal to distribute within the Commonwealth with His or Her Maj's permission, although I don't especially care for such things.

    The link to the Mahabharata is incomplete, it is just one volume. I tried to edit the post, but it seems to mess up all the links, so I'm going to leave it.

    It seems you can find it in 4 volumes here: https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/sea...ry=Mahabharata
    Or in 18 volumes here: http://www.sacred-texts.com/hin/maha/index.htm

    Two omissions from this thread that should probably be there are Jacques the Fatalist (1796) by Diderot, and On War (1831) by Clausewitz. I think there was also a book from around 1537 but I cannot remember the name of it or the author, and I'm not sure of the right century either. (Orlando Furioso by Ludovico Ariosto I was thinking of).

    I recently found out that the edition of Tacitus's Germania and Agricola I linked is in Latin...

    They can be found in English (and then downloaded as ebooks) from this page: Wikisource: Tacitus

    I made a list of the 100 most popular authors on this list determined by the number of ratings their most popular work has on Goodreads, then listed what the work was, then put them approximately in date order. I only included works before 1923, which means for example that The Great Gatsby is not the work selected for F. Scott Fitzgerald, and that authors such as Virginia Woolf and D.H. Lawrence are not included.
