Previous owner's names on front free endpaper. This book was one of four published by Lindsay & Blakiston of Archbishop Whately's Works. Whately is credited with raising the study of logic to a whole new level after releasing his treatise on it in 1826. An online dictionary defines "apophthegm" as a "short, pithy, and instructive saying or formulation." There are nearly 300 pages of "miscellaneous apophthegms" by Whately, who was a man who spoke his mind. Here is his one-line opinion of Alexander Pope's poetry: "Pope's rhymes too often supply the defect of his reasons." 442 pages plus 16 pages of advertising.
