Second edition, revised. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper “For Lionel & Diana, with ever affectionate thoughts, this dull old book that faithfully reflects the dull old friend who sends it, Jacques. Dec 22/64”. Literary critic Lionel Trilling (1905–75) worked at Columbia during the same period as Barzun, and for thirty years the two jointly taught the Colloquium on Important Books, counting among their students Alan Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac, and Louis Menand. A lovely and significant presentation copy.

Octavo. Original brown cloth, titles to spine gilt An excellent copy in the lightly rubbed and marked jacket.
