Albert Schweitzer: An Introduction [With Two Unpublished Addresses by Albert Schweitzer] - Jacques Feschotte

Adam & Charles Black, 1954, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with the price clipped. Pages lightly age-tanned.

Translated from the French. From the cover: “A new study of Dr Schweitzer by an intimate friend, who has had particular opportunities to know his subject as a man in his Alsatian village home, rather than as the great world-figure who recently was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

At Schweitzer’s own suggestion the book contains the first publication in this country of his account of an episode in his childhood, and his important address on the problem of ethics in the evolution of human thought, delivered on his installation as a member of the French Academy.”

Size: 8¼" x 5¼". Red boards with Silver titling to the Spine. 130 pages.
