Book Description Macmillan & Co., Ltd., London, 1926. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fair. No Jacket. First Edition. 361 pages (complete). This covers a much ignored part of Smuts' personal beliefs. It was a core part of his thinking and beliefs. It was this holist philosophy that Queen Frederika of Greece claims led to his idea that led to the formation of the United Nations (she was also inspired by her walks with him on Table Mountain to become a lifelong devotee). A much owned and roughly stored copy. The boards are worn, scuffed, marked. They are resolute, comfortably secure. Within, there is evidence of use throughout. The pages are mild, benevolent, occasionally foxed and annotated, generally clean and clear, comfortable and certain. fk. Bookseller Inventory # bjyi
