The original version of The Law of Success was finished by Napoleon Hill in 1925 and released as a limited hand made edition consisting of only 118 copies. Each of these distinctive editions were comprised of 15 booklets and given to many of the most successful businessmen of the day, self-made billionaires, inventors, Presidents, and others who shaped and built modern America; all of whom had contributed to the book’s content. People like John D. Rockefeller, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Theodore Roosevelt, Alexander Graham Bell and many others. Hill interviewed over 500 people in all, but reserved the 118 copies for individuals who had been particularly important to his research. In 2006, Orne Publishing found the only known copy still in existence of the original 1925 book at a rare bookseller in Arkansas. A king’s ransom was paid to secure this work for our collection because of the historical significance of the book. This is an especially important discovery today now that there are thousands of self-help books in the marketplace and hundreds who have made a living by copying, paraphrasing, and watering down the wisdom in Napoleon Hill’s landmark research. Nearly all the information you’ll find out there today has already been written about by Dr. Hill with greater detail, perspective, and authority.
