Quote of Note | Octave Uzanne

theendofbooks
An illustration by A. Robida that accompanied Octave Uzanne’s 1894 essay.

“Reading, as we practice it today, soon brings on great weariness; for not only does it require of the brain a sustained attention which consumes a large proportion of the cerebral phosphates, but it also forces our bodies into various fatiguing attitudes.”

-French bibliophile and writer Octave Uzanne (1851-1931) in “The End of Books,” an essay that appeared in a 1894 issue of Scribner’s Magazine
