Second edition, with additions. Scarce work. An anthology of writings on friendship, from early customs and Paganism, through the place of friendship in Greek life and thought, to the Renaissance and modern times. Edited by Edward Carpenter, an English utopian socialist, philosopher, poet, and activist for gay rights and prison reform. Previously held in the library of Geoffrey Powell, a British soldier who served in MI5 and became a notable writer on military history, and his wife Felicity Powell.
In the original beige cloth binding. Externally, smart with light rubbing and bumping to the extremities. Fading to the spine and the odd mark to the board. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are very bright and clean with the odd spot. Previous owner's bookplate to the front endpaper.
