Descripción

This 109 page Illustrated First edition, being an increasingly well respected and energetically applauded offering it is proudly presented with great and well deserved hubris by Hirschfeld Galleries in the publishers ORIGINAL binding. Said binding being quarter terra cotta ckloth on pictorial paper covered boards, a real eyecatcher. Book is rock solid, clean, and tight as a drum, save for a small neatly written signature of previous owner on first free flyleaf. A condensation of Voltaire's philosophy, "these short studies reflect every phase of Voltaire's sparkling genius." Entries are alphabetical by topic, from "Adam" to "Zeal." The boisterous editor McPharlin looks dispassionately at all sides of this controversially chosen subject matter, and we at Hirschfield Galleries hope that only those who similarly read and contemplate with an objective mind would yearn to become the next caretaker of this seminalogic work. Alas, when all is said and done and the proverbial geese have come home to nest or roost, or whatever, this book does have the four absolute uppermost qualities we at Hirschfeld Galleries since 1931 have always sought, and demanded, in books: 1) excellence in content, 2) literary quality, 3) appealing design, and 4) significance of contribution. Another great altruistic offering opportunity for us and an even greater opportunity for self-actualized reception on your part. But enough of the lugubrious however allegorically wise jaw-jacking, enough said of the telluric parameters of select Hirschfeld Galleries' offerings such as this one which take on a life of their own and speak so very loudly for themselves. Read to learn and enjoy; go forth to share and enjoin. Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. N° de ref. de la librería 006493
