Sand and Foam: A Book of Aphorisms.
London: William Heinemann, 1927. First edition of this powerful collection of aphorisms, poems, and parables from the author of The Prophet. Octavo, original cloth. Warmly inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "To Marie Luise, With a greeting across the garden, Kahlil.'' Also laid in is a autograph signed two paged letter on his letterhead, completely in Gibran's hand. It reads, "Good morning to you, dear Marie Lousie, and many blessings upon you. I have before me now a kindly number of your letters, and I feel quite rich. You see, I went to the country for a while, and while I was there no letters were forwarded to me. Everybody thinks that I must try and get out of the world as though I have never been in it. And they say that I am not well enough to do anything but lie on my back and be still. They are all stupid! I like the little photographs in your last letter very much. They make you seem quite dashing! The hair is infinitely better and, of course, more becoming. No doubt that at the end of October 'your tresses, like molten gold, falling from heaven to the earth,' will [be] a pleasant sight to the gods of this world--and the gods of other worlds. I am glad you still like the drawing. Who knows, I may make a better one next winter! And if I should do so, you would want it- and I will not give it to you- and that's that!!! Always your faithful Kahlil Boston Aug. 28 1927." In near fine condition. Sand and Foam' is a collection of profound and inspirational thoughts from the master of timeless wisdom, Kahlil Gibran, author of 'The Prophet'. Abstract and specific, amused and awed, direct and circuitous, this work draws together strands of advice and motivation to enrich the mind, heart, soul and life of the reader.
