Success in life. A passage from Walter Pater

Minneapolis: House with The Attic, 1930. Edition limited to 150 copies, leaflet, 14.5 x 9.5 cm, pp. [8]; printed brown wrappers; fine. "This piece is from the Conclusion of Walter Pater's Studies in the History of the Renaissance 1873. It provoked considerable discussion in its day, was omitted from the second edition of the Studies, and now stands as an exquisite embodiment of that philosophy which exalts active estheticism. It must be understood for what it is" (colophon). Rulon-Miller, Wulling 11. Item #52356
