TEN THOUSAND A-YEAR. A New Edition, Carefully Revised, with Notes and Illustrations

By Warren, Samuel (1807-1877). PRESIDENT TRUMAN'S COPY.

William Blackwood and Sons, Edinburgh and London: 1848, 1848. Three volumes. Engraved armorial frontis. Small 8vo. 17 cm. Later English half leather binding by A. F. Denny, rubbed at extremities. Marbled edges. Engraved bookplate of Alexander Uffey. ** FROM THE HARRY S. TRUMAN LIBRARY: Embossed stamp of the 'Harry S. Truman Library / Independence Missouri' and the 'Surplus / Duplicate' stamp of the Library of Congress. Warren was an English lawyer who gained fame for his arguments against the insanity defense. Starting in 1830, he contributed regular ly to Blackwood's Magazine. His great success was 'Ten Thousand a Year' which ran in Blackwood's October 1839 to August 1841. It was one of the most popular novels of the century. Defying public sentiment, critics complained of the banality of the moralizing and the extravagance of the humor. Most contem poary readers, on the other hand, found the sketches of farcical characters boldly drawn and the caricatures clearly developed. Warren lived on the fame of this work for decades. For some reason, this particular edition is scarce. Of course, this set gains added interest in having come from U.S. President Truman's library. "There is probably no man living, though ever so great a fool, that cannot do 'something' or other well" -- Samuel Warren. **PRICE JUST REDUCED! W148. Hardcover. Very Good.

OPTIMISM. A Real Remedy. With a Foreword by William Dana Orcutt.

By Fletcher, Horace.

A.C. McClurg & Co., Chicago: 1908., 1908. 78p. + Portrait frontis. 8vo. Original cloth backed paper binding. Paper spine label worn. One of the earliest promoters of changing how one eats was Horace Fletcher (1849-1919) of Lawrence, MA. He evolved a system called Fletcherism, concerned chiefly with the slow mastication (chewing) of food. If you follow Fletcherism, you will chew each bite of food until it becomes a watery mass in your mout h before swallowing. This has two effects. First, if you chew a bite of food that long, you will be consuming your meal at a slower rate. Secondly, the reduction of this food to a watery mass means th at it will be less difficult to extract nutrients from the food. PHREN 2. Hardcover. Very Good.
