Schweitzer: A Biography by David Marshall; George Poling; (£10.50)Publisher: Geoffrey Bles — 1971Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition.

Previous owner’s inscription, minor, to the title page and a note to the margin of the index.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “Albert Schweitzer’s life and Schweitzer the man have been for years shrouded in myth. This biography, the first since his death in 1965, probes beyond his time-worn image as an old, tired man in a pith helmet. Here he is revealed as everything but what that image represents — a respected philosopher, a renowned Biblical scholar, and a liberal rebel in a conservative European protestant church. He was an accomplished organist and interpreter of Bach, a crusader for world peace, and a winner of the Nobel Peace Prize. He made his philosophy of ‘reverence for Iife’ an ethic for the world. Still in operation, his hospital in Lambarene is a model of what the European might have given to the African native throughout colonial history.”Notes: Foreword or introduction by Rhena Schweitzer.

First Edition. Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with the price clipped. Pages lightly age-tanned.Description: 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.
