In Praise of Idleness and Other Essays

Uncommon later edition of this noteworthy collection of essays by the British philosopher, originally published in England and America in 1935 (though the front jacket flap bizarrely credits this as the "first American publication," there was in fact a 1935 edition published in New York by W. W. Norton). NY: Simon and Schuster, 1972. First edition thus. Octavo (5.75 x 8.25 in.); 231pp.; blue cloth boards; silver spine titles; in dust jacket. Small black remainder slash on bottom of textblock, negligible shelfwear. Else fine in a near fine, unclipped ("$7.95") jacket with a couple of short closed tears (and related creases). Attractive copy.
