Description

First Edition, Original Binding, Publishers' Original Binding, Signed, With Dustwrapper

The first edition. 

A scarce signed and inscribed copy. Inscription to the title page; "To Stephen, with love & gratitude for his benedictions, from (signature)". 

From the library of Hungarian-Canadian author Stephen Vizinczey, best known for his 'In Praise of Older Women', and 'An Innocent Millionaire'. His writing was praised by the likes of Graham Greene and Anthony Burgess, describing his fiction as social epics which breathe hope in a corrupt world.

This work was written by English playwright and novelist, best known for his drama 'Copenhagen' , his film 'Clockwise' staring John Cleese and his novel 'Towards the End of the Morning'. Frayn is also known for his other philosophical work, 'The Human Touch'. This work discusses what the aim of philosophy is, with Frayn arguing that is reminds us of what we know and to reflect on our experiences.
