WHITEHEAD, Alfred North. Essays in Science and Philosophy. London: Rider and Company, 1948.

8vo., publisher's black cloth, lettered in gilt to spine; original unclipped dust jacket printed in black, red and blue; verso showing publisher's advertisements; pp. [iv], 5-255, [i]; cloth a little bumped and rubbed to corners and edges, but marginally so; edges and prelims lightly spotted, with Times book club stamp to rear paste-down overlapping onto internal rear flap of jacket; the jacket itself lightly shelf-worn, with some nicks, chips and creases, particularly affecting the spine, which is also lightly sunned. A very good copy.
First Edition of this collection of Whitehead's most accessible essays. Covering almost thirty years of his professional life, the collection begins with a personal history, thereby followed by Philosophy, Education, and Science, with chapters including 'Immortality', 'The Study of the Past' and 'Non-Euclidean Geometry', amongst others.
