God the Known and God the Unknown.
London: A.C.Fifield,1909. 1st ed. A re-issue of one of the Works of Samuel Butler by Fifield. "'God the Known and God the Unknown' first appeared in the form of a series of articles which were published in 'The Examiner' in May,June, and July,1879. Samuel Butler subsequently revised the text of his work, presumably with the intention of republishing it, though he never carried the intention into effect. In the present edition I have followed his revised version almost without deviation. I have, however, retained a few passages which Butler proposed to omit, partly because they appear to me to render the course of his argument clearer, and partly because they contain characteristic thoughts and expressions of which none of his admirers would wish to be deprived."(Prefatory note by R.A.Streatfeild). Pp.92/4(ads), name to fep, slight toning to endpapers. Blue cloth, gilt title to front and spine, edges slightly rubbed. VG.
