169 pp, 8vo (8 3/16" H). "The product of many years' preparation, this volume is divided into two sections. The first, which gives the book its distinct flavor, is a concise anthology of quotations, phrases, anecdotes and poetic passages from both ancient and modern literature. The second section is a complete compendium of proverbs, aphorisms, homilies and wise sayings from nine languages. The collection is as amazingly diverse as it is astonishing in its demonstration of the profound similiarity of the ideas of the great and near-great thinkers of history." Interior - minor browning to pages, otherwise clean with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - light edgewear, light rubbing, wear at top of rear hinge and bottom of front hinge, light browning to edges of textblock, very light soiling.
