4.5" x 7.5". 577 pages. An anthology of prose, poetry and thought, ancient and modern, with an emphasis on the modern. Small stain on corner of front cover and wear to that corner. Cloth on boards. Minor shelf wear to top and bottom of spine. Pages clean, paper slightly aged. "The editors laid down certain rules: Nothing that is probably already too familiar or too accessible. Nothing purely inspirational, nothing sentimental. And yet nothing cynical. Nobility of thought keeps on the crown of the road, out of the gutters..." Looks like exactly the right book for the Poet-Philosopher in you. Categories: Man in Search of Himself, He Solicits His Past, He Turns to Nature, And Scrutinizes Her, And Himself, He Lives with His Fellows, They Better Their Condition, They Must Have Peace, Security and Liberty, And Justice, He Seeks Beauty, And Friendship and Love, And Even Something More, He Takes Better Aim. If ever there was a book for the real thinking person, this was it. Aside from the stain and damage to the lower front corner, a very nice copy. Our listing number 48028.
