About this Item

Sm. octavo. xix,109pp. Blue cloth with gold-stamped signature of Cohen on front cover, gold lettering on spine. Frontispiece b/w reproduction of a painting of Cohen by Joseph Margulies. "On October 15, 1927, more than a thousand people gathered at the Hotel Astor to do honor to Professor Morris Raphael Cohen, who had completed a quarter century of teaching in Mathematics and in Philosophy at the College of the city of New York. Students, colleagues and friends came and created a unique festival. It was suggested by Dr. Felix Adler that an attempt be made to capture in the written word the spirit of the evening and that a transcript of the addresses be printed, so that this tribute to a teacher - and memorable because it was to a teacher - be more lasting in the memory, and that those who were not present may catch some breath of the loveliness of the occasion. With that thought in view, this little volume was printed." Includes letters and greetings by Albert Einstein, Jusice Oliver Wendell Holmes, and others. Minor rubbing, scuffing and staining on binding. Signature of previous owner on inside of front board. Tight copy with binding in good+, interior in very good condition. Bookseller Inventory # 26719
