Book Description D. Appleton-Century Company Incorporated, New York, 1936. Hardcover. Condition: Good. No Jacket. Suydam, E. H. (illustrator). "This is not a history of Boston. There are many of these already in existence.Nor is this an essay conceived in the vein that once prompted John Adams.to write of his fellow Bosthnians: 'The morals of our people are much better; their manners are more polite and agreeable; they are purer English; our language is better; our taste is better.' Rather this is an attempt, through the agency of selected interludes, episodes, personalities and aspects of Bostons past and present, to suggest a character study of the town, neither a portrait of parade nor a caricature, but one implicit, at least, with reality and some vital gusto.Too many among even the friendliest essayists have somehow contrived to invest Boston with all the compelling animation of that favorite English boarding-house dessert, cold shape. And Bostonians themselves have often enough contributed to this sedative legend in a spirit of oblique or indifferent malice, feeling somehow superior for the tolerant suffrage of the rest of the world." Well illustrated; color frontispiece. xv + 372 pages with index. Book is in GOOD condition. No dust jacket. Seller Inventory # 006848
