Sinopsis:

Ouspensky - The Unsung Genius By J.H.Reyner P. D. OUSPENSKY was one of the outstanding thinkers of the 20th century. he became convinced at a very early age of the existence of dimensions of reality beyond those which sufficed for the ordinary purposes of life, and he began to express his ideas in articles and books which soon gained for him a reputation for originality of thought. He travelled extensively in a search for the basic truths preserved in ancient legend, which he later interpreted in two major philosophical works, one of which 'A New Model of the Universe' brought him world-wide acclaim. In 1915 he met the Caucasian mystic G. I. Gurdjieff, who had brought from an Eastern monastery a system of ideas which Ouspensky immediately recognised as providing the key which he had so long sought. He devoted the rest of his life to the promulgation of these ideas by both public and private lectures and much later wrote a formulation of the system called 'In Search of the Miraculous' which is recognised as the authoritative record of the ideas. The very dedication, however, has tended to mask his individual stature and there are some who regret the absence of the inspiration and innocence of his earlier writings which in his later years were only evident to those few individuals with whom he would relax. The author of the present book, who is himself an adept of many years standing, has endeavoured to portray the real nature of the man, who was not the austere intellectual of the classroom but a warm-hearted and rather lonely visionary to whom the world owes a great debt of gratitude, a debt which the author suggests can now in part be repaid by the acknowledgement of his genius. The sketch on the cover by J. Waterhouse is based on a little-known photograph showing Ouspensky in the happy mood of his more relaxed moments - the 'Peter' aspect of his character as opposed to the more generally depicted austere intellectual 'Damian' guise.

Descripción de la librería

I have been selling books for 20 years. I am a specialist in out of print and rare academic titles, art, history, military history and what I like to loosely describe as "Old and Interesting." Here is a helpful list of book terms that I use: Terms for Describing Condition These terms apply to books, dust jackets and magazines. As New is when the book is in the same immaculate condition in which it was published. There are no defects and the dust jacket, if issued with one, is perfect. Fine approaches the condition of "As New," but without being crisp. There may be minor defects, which are noted. Very Good describes a book that does show some small signs of wear but no tears on either binding or paper. Any defects are noted. Good describes the average used and worn book that has all pages or leaves present. All defects are noted. Fair is a well-worn book that has complete text pages but may lack endpapers, half title page, etc. All defects are noted. Poor describes a book that is sufficiently worn so that its only merit is as a reading copy. This book may be soiled, scuffed, stained or spotted and may have loose joints, hinges, pages, etc. All defects are noted. Ex-library books are always noted as such regardless of condition. Book Club Editions (BCE) are always noted as such regardless of condition. Boards are the actual hardcover material of the cover, front and back. Bookplate is usually a square illustrated sticker on which an owner writes his or her name, or on which the author has signed his or her name. Bumped refers to the bent or rounded corners of the boards. Browning or tanning refers to brown or tan looking pages or page edges that appear in some older books. Chip is a tiny piece missing from the edge of the dust jacket. Closed tear is a tiny rip in the dust jacket, but no material is missing (as in a chip). It can be "shut" and protected from further tearing with a Mylar cover. Cocked means the book is no longer square. If laid down, the book appears to be pushed (slanted) forward or backward from the spine. Creasing is where the dust jacket or pages have been bent, and then returned to its original state. Dampstain is a tan or gray stain resulting from water or other liquid damage. End papers or pastedowns are the sheets of paper pasted onto the inner covers, joining the book block to the covers. One side of the sheet is pasted to the inside cover, the other is left free (see FFEP). FFEP stands for front free-endpaper. This is the first page of any book. Though usually blank, it is a common place for an inscription. Foxing is the term used for the rust colored spots which occur on paper. This is the result of oxidation of both organic and iron impurities left behind during the paper making process. Front, top or bottom edge: These are the outside page edges. Loose is what happens to a book which has been read several times. The cover easily flaps open and the pages do not return to a tight condition. Heal or tail is the bottom of the spine. Head is the top of the spine. Mass-Market paperback is the most common paperback book, about four inches wide and seven inches high. Seen most often as "popular" fiction, science fiction and romance books. Mylar cover is the clear film that most fine bookshops use to cover and protect the dust jackets. Spine separation occurs at the head (top) of the spine where the fingers grab and pull the book from the shelf. After repeated pulling, the glue holding the outer spine board to the inner binding separates. Sunned is the fading of paper or binding as a result of sun exposure. Trade paperback is a softcover book which is generally large in size and made of better quality materials than a Mass-Market paperback. Wraps are the outer covers of a softcover (paperback) book or pamphlet.
