New York: The Macmillan Company, 1919. The American historian Henry (Brooks) Adams (1838-1918), a presidential decendant, became a prominent "public intellectual." He was influenced by John Stuart Mill. The first trade edition of his autobiography, "The Education of Henry Adams" became a posthumous hit and has made it on to the Modern Library's 100 Best Nonfiction Books (as #1). This posthumous collection of essays has an introduction by his brother Brooks Adams. A Very Good copy of the First Edition, published one year after Henry's death. Dark blue cloth binding with gilt lettering on the spine. Clean text; xv, 317 pages, indexed. The top is dusty, the front hinge is cracked but holding well. There is mottling on the rear cover, else it would have a better condition rating. The scarce dustjacket is present. It is complete, but tattered and rubbed along the margins; chips to the head and foot of the spine. In an archival plastic protector.. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/Very Good. 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. Dust jacket present. First Edition.
