American writer, philosopher, publisher, and artist, Elbert Hubbard, founded the Roycroft Arts and Crafts community in East Aurora, New York. Hubbard set up a small printing shop next to his family home, where he began printing "The Philistine" magazine. The publication, quite popular in its time, was filled with Hubbard's sardonic wit, satire and often controversial commentary. An 1899 edition of the magazine included "A Message to Garcia," an inspirational essay celebrating the initiative of Major Andrew Rowan during the Spanish-American War. Hubbard remarked that the essay was written after a discussion with his son Bert about the heroism of Officer Rowan, and what was originally intended as a filler piece for the magazine quickly became an iconic piece of American literature. The essay has been reprinted and translated many times, has inspired screen adaptations, and was given to every U.S. Navy enlistee and U.S. Marine in both world wars. A self described anarchist and socialist, Hubbard believed passionately in freedom in every avenue of life. Along with "A Message to Garcia" fourteen additional essays are included in this representative selection of Hubbard's works. This edition is printed on premium acid-free paper.

This literary trifle, "A Message to Garcia," was written one evening after supper, in a single hour. It was on the Twenty-second of February, Eighteen Hundred Ninety-nine, Washington's Birthday, and we were just going to press with the March "Philistine." The thing leaped hot from my heart, written after a trying day, when I had been endeavoring to train some rather delinquent villagers to abjure the comatose state and get radioactive. The immediate suggestion, though, came from a little argument over the teacups, when my boy Bert suggested that Rowan was the real hero of the Cuban War. Rowan had gone alone and done the thing-carried the message to Garcia. It came to me like a flash! Yes, the boy is right, the hero is the man who does his work-who carries the message to Garcia. - Taken from "A Message To Garcia" written by Elbert Hubbard. This edition also contains selected writings of Elbert Hubbard on Morality, Success and more
