Printing Details

First edition, first printing hardback in dustwrapper. 22 × 14.5cm, 204pp.

Nine essays on nine interesting men, from the not very well-known Rutherford (father of nuclear physics, whose first name is never mentioned) to the very well-known Winston Churchill, from the enigmatic Einstein to the idiosyncratic Robert Frost, from the uncelebrated British Prime Minister Lloyd George to the internationally admired Dag Hammarskjold to the deadly notorious Stalin. These sketches are personal impressions of people who have been influential in Snow's life and in his thinking. He wrote the book because, "The real fun was in the variety of human beings. That has been my chief preoccupation ever since I can remember: even when, for a mixture of reasons, I have had to turn my attention to other things."


This copy is in very good condition, with just a little light wear.
