Unscientific Essays

by Frederic Wood Jones

Edward  Arnold & Co., 1925, marbled decorative hardcover with green cloth binding

Very Good Condition, minor edge and shelf wear with minor rubbing and bumping to edges and corners, (see photographs)

from the preface: " These pages are the products of idle moments.  Though a man's calling may be a well-defined one, and circumscribed by narrow and traditional boundaries, it may yet be permitted to him to wander at times far away from his own small sphere.  A blacksmith may meditate upon buttercups whilst he is shaving of a morning.  Some of the idle moments have passed in London, some in Australia, and some upon a coral island.  The products of these idle moments had no purpose, and they represent no more than a desire for the expression of things too trivial and too inexact to be reckoned as scientific."
