    1. Purported to be the oldest book in the world, this volume contains two short volumes, "The Instructions of Ptah-Hotep" and "The Instruction of Ka'Gemni" that are 6000 and 5500 years old respectively. They were translated and released as part of a series exploring Eastern religion around 1900 that was attempting to enlighten Westerners to end animosity between East and West and create better understanding to find harmony amongst humankind. Most of the volumes contained in the series can be found [...]

    2. The translation was from 1912 and was very difficult to understand. Otherwise it is an interesting document, strange to see that more than 5000 years ago people had - more or less - the same issues as today.
