All writers treasure their copies!
This an early edition of a familiar Standard Reference for all writers. I can not date the David McKay Company publication, but a note on the reverse flyleaf by a previous owner lists his ownership as October 16, 1950.
Familiar users will recognize the Plan of Classification: Abstract Relations, Space, Matter, Intellect, Volition and Affections.
This book, though showing its age in slight shelf wear, browning pages and stains, is in remarkable firm condition. Strong binding. For its size (5 1/2 inches by 8 1/4 inches by 1 1/4 inches) it weighs a lot--1.8 pounds. It has 705 pages.
The flyleaves, front and back, show the ideas an eager writer, yet interesting and clearly expressed.
