About this title
Darwen Finlayson [Published date: 1969]. Hard cover, 180 pp. Reprint of 1912 original. [Excerpt from front jacket flap] In one of the brief essays which make up this collection, Chesterton describes himself as 'a monstrously lazy man', and refers to one of his essays as 'fifteen hundred unimportant words'. In putting out this new edition of A Miscellany of Men the publishers are aware that, in Chesterton's eyes and in those of any but the most fanatical devotee, some of the essays contain an element of hack work. But anyone who disregards the essays on this score also deprives himself of delght in the discovery of those frequent occasions when the genius of Chesterton dismisses the hack. In other words, though there may be a few essays in this early collection which are not wholly excellent, there is none that is not well worth reading for a passage or a phrase which has that magic power of illuminating thought.

SALES TAX: The AbeBooks checkout system cannot detect when California sales tax must be added to your purchase price. As a bona fide California reseller, if we are shipping to a point within the state of California, we are required to collect state sales tax. After confirming availability, we will instruct AbeBooks to request your approval of the sales tax necessary based on the selling price of your purchase. SHIPPING CHARGES: Please note that about 13.5% of the shipping and handling charge is retained by AbeBooks as a fee levied against the bookseller and not passed along for purchasing postage and packaging supplies. That is much of the reason why the shipping charge is significantly higher than actual postage costs. This is especially true for international shipping where international postal costs are high to begin with. Occasionally (such as when ordering a set of books, it will be necessary for us to ask domestic buyers for some additional shipping funds. In this case, after confirming your book(s) is available, we will ask AbeBooks to request appropriate additional shipping charges. In practice, this is a rare occurrence on domestic orders. See below for international shipping. PACKING: All books will be carefully packed to insure safe arrival. We use either quality shipping boxes or other shipping containers augmented by bubble, paper cushioning, or cardboard chipboard to insure safe delivery in the same condition as book was sent. INTERNATIONAL ORDERS: Our default shipping cost is for shipping in a flat rate global priority envelope, small box, or flat rate bag. If your book is too large or too expensive to ship in these containers we will be asking AbeBooks to request adequate additional funds so we can ship your book safely and securely. All international shipments will be listed as books-merchandise on customs forms with value as actual invoice cost. No exceptions. If you have any concerns, please contact us via e mail prior to placing an order for an accurate shipping quotation.
