    • Will and Ariel Durant: A Dual Autobiography (1977)When Will was less than twenty years old he made lists of literature and people.

    • I bought this book at a used book sale, because, reading the flyleaf I discovered that Ariel Durant was only 14 when she married Will Durantd then they stayed married for 60-some years, and she collaborated with him on the later volumes of their famous work, The Story of Civilization. Fourteen years old! Even more - with her mother's permission! (This was in 1912, but still -- it was young for then, too.) I have not read any of The Story of Civilization, but hey, I've heard of it! And I have a v [...]
