Alexander the Great (356-323 BC), king of Macedonia, conqueror of the Persian Empire, and one of the greatest military geniuses of all times. Alexander, born in Pella, the ancient capital of Macedonia, was the son of Philip II, king of Macedonia, and of Olympias, a princess of Epirus. Aristotle was Alexander's tutor; he gave Alexander a thorough training in rhetoric and literature and stimulated his interest in science, medicine, and philosophy.
The original hard-back book was written by one of the most renown and prolific writer-historians of his time, Jacob Abbott of Brunswick, Maine. It was one of a set of 32 volumes authored by Jacob and John Abbott, brothers, in the mid- to late-1800s. The set was re-published in the early 1900s, and not again until 2000, when GoldenWest Marketing undertook the project of re-printing 8 of these rare and genealogically valuable books.
The 278 pages of the original hard-bound book have been photocopied and printed two to a page and placed in a soft cover with a plastic-comb binding, affordable book.
