This one is interesting for what we do NOT know about it. "It" is "Self Help, Character, Conduct, and Peserverance" by Samuel Smiles. A volume of "Burts Library of the Worlds Best Books". I know that it is NOT an 1894 first edition. I BELIEVE it is from about 1910. It is in "Good" condition as the binding is tight and the cover is intact. There are some cracks in the cover and backwrap.
$19.99 in vintage.
But what is "Self Help, Character, Conduct, and Perserverance"?
Here is a short excerpt:
Heaven helps those who help themselves is a well tried maxim,l embodying in a small compass the results of vast human experience. The spirit of self-help is the root of all genuine growth in the individual; and, exhibited in the lives of many, it constitutes the true source of national vigor and strength. Help from without is often enfeebling in its effects, but help from within invariably invigorates. Whatever is done for men or Classes, to a certain extent takes away the stimulus and necessity of doing for them selves; and where men are subjected to over-guidance and over-government, the inevitable tendency is to render them comparatively helpless.
Great books on the ideas and concepts that made the greatest generation, the greatest generation.
