Think on these Things.
Edited by D. Rajagopal.New York: Harper & Row, 1964 Stock Code: 140987
NotesFirst edition, first printing. A major presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper to the visionary inventor and designer Buckminster Fuller: "to Dr.Fuller, with much affection, J. Krishnamurti".
The dust jacket bears Fuller's characteristic markings: above Krishnamurti's name on the front panel he has written in blue crayon "Signed copy by", and with his neat library subject label at foot of spine. This was apparently one of Krishnaurti's personal copies, as it carries the label of the Krotona Book Shop in Ojai, California, the village in which he spent the last 25 years of his life. Fuller also spent his final years in the same region, a few miles away in Santa Barbara.
Krishnamurti's biographer, Pupul Jayakar remarks, "In the early 1960s Buckminster Fuller met Krishnaji in India. 'Bucky,' as his friends called him, was a designer who had revolutionized structures and designed for a future culture and way of life; he was at once a philosopher, a scientist with vision, creative vitality, and a holistic view of people and their needs. I knew Bucky well. And he telephoned me when he heard Krishnaji was in Delhi to suggest a meeting with 'that marvelous, beautiful, wise person.' I arranged a dinner at which both men were present. Bucky entered the room bouncing a yo-yo" (J. Krishnamurti: A Biography, 1986, p. 282).
