Very Good/Good. 8vo-over 7¾"-9¾" Tall Octavo 0192152505 Hardback Hardback. Toynbee Experiences. Previous owners name and date to inside cover. Slightly rolled spine. Slight shelf wear to edge of D/J. Sunned spine to D/J. Published on the occasion of Dr. Toynbee's eightieth birthday, 14 April 1969, this book is a sequel to Acquantances. 'In the first and third parts of Experiences', he writes, 'I am the subject as well as the narrator. In the second part I am an observer and an appraiser, but not of particular persons, as I am in Acquaintances. This second part of the present book is a survwey of, and commentary on, human affairs in my lifetime'. That lifetime was remarkable, he points out, both for the extension, through medical science, of the individual's chances of longevity, and for the unprecedented rapidity of change in science and technology, education, and public affairs. An observer of the world, such as Dr. Toynbee, has therefore had more, and more striking, change to observe than in any previous generation. The personal writings in Part I show, in fascinating manner, how the author reached the standpoint from which he observes, and he adds in Part III a short collection of even more personal writings, those verses which he has written at various times in his life, mainly in Greek or Latin, the classical languages of his own academic training which are to him a unique, if restricted, means of self-expression. 417 pp. (We carry a wide selection of titles in The Arts, Theology, History, Politics, Social and Physical Sciences. academic and scholarly books and Modern First Editions, Reference books, and all types of Academic Literature. )
