Essays on Truth and Reality - BRADLEY, F. H - 1914. 
Oxford: at the Clarendon Press, 1914 - Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles and publisher's device gilt to spine, blind frame to boards, bottom edge untrimmed. With the dust jacket. Upper outer corners bumped, very faint crease to upper outer corner of text-block. An excellent copy in the dust jacket sunned on the spine and along the top edge of the rear panel, and with a short closed tear to the head of the front joint. First edition, first impression of this collection of essays in which Bradley developed his theory of absolute idealism, previously expounded in Appearance and Reality (1893). Bradley is remembered as one of the last idealists, and his philosophy was notably the subject of T. S. Eliot's unpresented doctoral thesis at Harvard, eventually published in 1964 under the title Knowledge and Experience in the Philosophy of F. H. Bradley. "When reflecting on why Bradley's writings and personality are prone to fascinate readers, [Eliot] saw one of the reasons as lying in what he took to be, for its purposes, his 'perfect style'" (ODNB)."The present volume consists mainly of articles which have appeared in Mind. I have added a paper first printed in the Philosophical Review, and there are also some essays which have not been published The parts of this work have been called chapters mainly for convenience in reference, but also because most of them represent more or less the chapters of a book which I once intended to write" (Preface).
