The very capacious auditorium of Tremont Temple was destroyed by fire in August, 1879- and in November, 1879, the lectures were transferred to the Old South Meeting House, the most interesting of the historic edifices of New England.The audiences have always contained large numbers of ministers, teachers, and other educated men.The thirty-five lectures given in 1876-77 were reported in the Boston Daily Advertiser, by Mr. J. E. Bacon, stenographer- and most of them were republished in full in New York and London. They are contained in the first, second, and third volumes of Boston Monday Lectures, entitled Biology, Transcendentalism, and Orthodoxy.The thirty lectures given in 1877-78 were reported by Mr. Bacon for the Advertiser, and republished in full in New York and London.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
