Zack, Naomi. THE BIG BOOK OF PHILOSOPHY. New York City, NY: Fall River Press, 2010. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. Unpaginated. As New/As New.

Book-length account on subject. One of the best introductory texts on philosophy written in and for our time. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Naomi Zack's absorbing and accessible account on the history of Western philosophy. Her book covers a lot of ground, and she writes nimbly and aphoristically, adapting the encyclopedia format to introduce the reader to her rich, complex, and necessary subject. One of the very best introductions to philosophy, this is a "must-have" title for readers and collectors alike. This title is a contemporary classic. This is one of surprisingly very few copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A very scarce copy thus. One of the best guides to Western philosophy. A flawless copy. (SEE ALSO MICHAEL PICARD'S "PHILOSOPHY: ADVENTURES IN THOUGHT AND REASONING" TITLE IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 1435138260. $40.00
