Echoes of Larger Life; A Selection from the Early Correspondence Of Victoria Lady Welby, Cust, Mrs. Henry (ed.)
15 Cust, Mrs. Henry (ed.) Echoes of Larger Life; A Selection from the Early Correspondence Of Victoria Lady Welby
London Jonathan Cape 1929 Hard Cover Very Good No Jacket 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall Frontispiece Portrait 
Light brown cloth on boards. No writing or damage. The author is clearly aware of philosophical concerns associated with John Locke, and later, Ferdinand de Saussure and Charles Sanders Peirce - what is called 'semiotics' today. Evidence of this fact is contained in dozens of letters written to churchmen and professors between 1879 and 1891, together with their replies, which are reproduced here in part. Others of this author's titles, Significs and Language, and Links and Clues, appear on a want list but do not appear in their original editions as being for sale. The book we offer is the original edition of 1929 in very good condition, the only book of this title found. 292 pp.

London John C. Nimmo 1893 Sixth Edition 3/4 Leather on Cloth Boards Very Good No Jacket 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall Christian Le Blon 
Dark blue calf in 3/4 style on blue cloth, on boards. No writing. No damage except two short scrapes on leather on back of Vol. I. From the library of a medical doctor, this set exudes quality of both thought and material. The author uses quotes from a multitude of authors to prove various points, all related to melancholia, or what is presently called clinical depression. Burton's humour prevails throughout. Vol. 3 rear endpaper bears this in light pencil : "backboard of vol. 3 waterstained and slightly warped - spines faded. Binding by Nowell." I see no sign of any such defects. 500, 467, and 514 pp, respectively, in the three lovely volumes. Heavy books will need extra postage.
