23 cm c1934. 320 S. Ledereinband. Sprache: Englisch, guter Zustand, papierbedingt stark gebräunt, Schnitt fleckig, INTRODUCTION by JOHN BUCHAN "ALL of us, in whose lives books count for much, must now and then reflect upon the motive of our reading. I think that we shall conclude that the first and only motive is enjoyment; the only motive, for enjoyment, if it is properly interpreted, includes most things. What Goldsmith said of poetry is true of all good reading, it is "consecrated to pleasure." A narrow purpose of utility may be defensible in certain circumstances, but it is fatal to the perception of the true quality of literature. A book may be begun as a task, but unless it is finished as a delight we shall get little out of it. Education might well be defined as the process by which we enlarge our capacity for enjoyment and open out new avenues of pleasure. As children we begin with what acts as a stimulus to the fancy and widens our imaginative world. As we grow older other powers of the mind come into play, and we ask also for something which does not merely feed the fancy, but quickens and disciplines the intellect. The scientific interest awakens. We need not only to be entertained and beguiled, but to know and to understand. We seek truth of fact in history and science, and truth of another kind in the dim world of the philosophers. We desire to trace the processes of other minds. But in every kind of reading the first requirement is the power of enjoyment."
