Finely printed by the Tomoye Press, and bound in a rustic heavy brown cloth evoke monastic humility, inspirational essays from the author of "The Ministry of Beauty" and "As Nature Whispers" on love, wisdom truth,- how may we live and not dwell on these, how write to any purpose and not revolve about them? From the preface; It should be the aim of every earnest book to act in some degree as a medium for impersonal truth. Includes chapters on elements of freedom, the ideal of culture, the idea of religion, the nature of prayer, character and its expression, the beauty of poise and the soul of nature. Elder 363. Fine.
