Update: Easton Press 100 Greatest Books Ever Written (Now 125 Volumes) - Page 2

This is one of the original lists used to create the greatestbooks.org website. It is Easton Press's selection of the greatest books of the Western Canon. However, the title '100 Greatest Books Ever Written' is now a misnomer since the current list is 125 books long, with those additions brought in to fill out some holes.
Actually I have extended the list a bit further by separating some volumes with 2 or 3 works into individual items.
