Condition notes:
The dust is a bit damaged and looks old, due to the age of the book. There is some mild foxing to the text block

James Olney examines the writings of seven men--Montaigne, Jung, George Fox, Darwin, Newman, Mills, and Eliot--and traces the essential and unique autobiographical impulse, and in a real sense makes it live. Originally published in 1972. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.
