JAMES, WILLIAM
TALKS TO TEACHERS ON PSYCHOLOGY AND TO STUDENTS ON SOME OF LIFE'S IDEALS
Henry Holt & Co, New York, 1899. 1 leaf with book ads on verso + TP + [iii]-xi + half-title + [3]-301 + 303-305 = book ads + 1 leaf, Octavo. First Edition, SECOND PRINTING. McDermott 1899-7.James "self-published" this book, i.e. he contracted with a Boston printer to print it and then made a separate contract with Henry Holt of New York to distribute it for him. There were two printing of this work made on May 6th and September 30th of 1899. They were both from the same plates and are most easily distinguishable by their size and by the number of dots after the word "Relaxation" in the Table of Contents on page xi. This second printing is a bit smaller than the "large paper edition" [see the copy below] measuring only 7¾" x 5"and it has just four (rather than six) dots after the work "Relaxation." (See the Harvard Standard Edition of James works, Talks to Teachers, 1983, pp. 266-7.) This is a collection of lectures first delivered in the summer of 1892 and then several times later. The "talks" to teachers consist essentially of material from James' great Principles of Psychology applied to the art of teaching. A near-fine copy housed in around 80 percent of the remnants of the extremely scarce 19th century plain paper dustwrapper (now protected in a broadart sleeve). The fact that any dustwrapper for this book exists is a miracle in of itself! [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]
