The Art of Thinking

£6.50 Out Of Stock

Product description

"It is gratifying to observe that students and general readers are still interested in this little book as a body of suggestions for mental improvement; and its growing popularity may, I venture to think, indicate that the people for whom it was written find more practical utility in its pages than some of my reviewers were prepared to admit. I have been accused of attempting the impossible, as if a School of Thought was an idea too irrational for even a moment's consideration. . . . . "

The cover shows signs of use and handling but is not torn. There is a previous owner's name signed over the title panel. The title page has pulled partially away from the binding, but otherwise the binding is sound. The page edges of the closed book show dust and foxing but the pages themselves are clean and free from marking by pen, pencil etc.
