About This Item
1916. London: Sidgwick & Jackson, 1916. Original black cloth with spine label, with dust jacket. First English Edition (the American edition was issued four days earlier). This was Brooke's thesis written in 1911-1912 for his fellowship at King's College, here published posthumously by his Rugby classmate Frank Sidgwick. The volume is in fine condition (with the spare spine label still tipped in at the rear), except that there is a little of the usual fading of the black cloth. The quite-uncommon dust jacket is near-fine (spine slightly browned, one tiny hole in the spine, a short tear at the top of a joint). Keynes 44. Bookplate of David C. Titus.
