THE LIVING THOUGHTS LIBRARY (CASSELL AND COMPANY)
Series Note:
Publisher blurb on back panel of dustjacket: "Those things which today's educated man calls his knowledge and his conviction are an intellectual heritage created and defended a hundred or a thousand years ago by rebellious individuals when in battle with their age. Every year millions seeking to educate themselves turn to these original sources and try to study the old and ever-new philosophers once more.

But the task proves cumbersome. Sometimes it is the dust, sometimes the mere bulk, sometimes the involved phraseology of an outmoded style which discourages us. Should we, who have grown in understanding with the centuries, nevertheless strain ourselves to study these thinkers as before, page by page, sentence by sentence?

The essence of the great works from every age and nation, distilled and interpreted by kindred thinkers of our day -- that is the need of our time, fulfilled by

THE LIVING THOUGHTS LIBRARY"

This library was edited by Alfred Mendel. Editors were famous English, American, French, German and Italian authors of their day.

Format: Hardback (red cloth boards with decorative gilt and endpapers) with dustjacket. Octavo sized. Frontispiece portrait. Introductory essay.
