About this Item

"Chapman Cohen was the elder son of Enoch Cohen, a Jewish confectioner, and his wife, Deborah (née Barnett). He attended a local elementary school but was otherwise self-educated. He had read Spinoza, Locke, Hume, Berkeley, and Plato by the time he was eighteen. Cohen recalled that he had "little religion at home and none at school" as he was withdrawn from Religious Instruction classes Cohen and his wife had two children; a son (who entered the medical profession) and a daughter, who died at the age of 29 On his death, The Times printed a short obituary of Cohen, which said: He was the author of many books setting forth the freethought philosophy of life, which had a large sale, and he was outstanding as a forthright, witty and courteous debater and lecturer."(From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) "Chapman Cohen (1868-1954) probably spent more time in a leadership capacity in the freethought movement than any other man. He was active in freethought for over sixty years, with thirty-four of those years being spent as president of the National Secular Society. He was also editor of THE FREETHINKER for thirty-five years. BOOK DETAILS: Presumed to be the first edition The contents are tight and sound throughout.
