Blue cloth with gilt lettering and spine decoration. Minor edgewear and light bumping to head and heel of spine. Endpapers lightly discolored due to aging binding glue. Text is clean and bright, no marks. Price-clipped DJ shows heavy chipping to head and heel of spine, small chips and rubbing to edges and corners. "The basis for selection was simple: That each piece be able to stand by itself, independent of its context, and that it contain some stimulating or provocative or illuminating thought. Ranging chronologically in time from the makers of the King James Bible to the writer of the hour- a far cry, in period and personality, but not in that contemplative turn of mind which is the core and source of the writing in this collection in which no selection is longer than 500 words." (paraphrased from the jacket). Bookseller Inventory # H41111
