9780898706284: Platitudes in the Making Precepts and Advices for Gentlefolk

In 1955, in a used bookstore in San Francisco, Dr. Alfred Kessler, an avid collector of the works of G. K. Chesterton, uncovered a rare treasure - Chesterton's personal copy of a privately published edition of Holbrook Jackson's Platitudes in the Making (1911), with original responses by Chesterton written in green pencil between the lines of Jackson's book.
Since 1911, this hitherto unknown Chesterton "book within a book" has been seen only by a privileged few. Now, Ignatius Press is pleased to present this beautiful facsimile edition in which admirers of Chesterton everywhere will have the opportunity for an extraordinary glimpse of the remarkable wisdom and humor of this literary giant "at play".
