The Varieties of Religious Experience Williams James

About the object

First British edition, FIRST ISSUE. Publisher's grey-green cloth binding with paper title label on spine. Octavo, 534pp + colophon + 32pp, top edge gilt, Black endpapers, publisher's catalogue to rear; Nietsche misspelled at line 11 on page 38; binding tight and sound and text block is clean with slight rubbing, some wear to the spine label (as usual) which is still intact and legible & inked ownership inscription on top of the title page. A very good better than average copy for this particular title which comes housed in a custom green clamshell box. Published several weeks before the American edition, though the books were physically produced earlier (LC received its two copies May 26th). The British edition appeared June 9th, while the earliest notice in Publisher’s Weekly for the American Edition was June 21st. See the bibliographical discussion on pages 555-6 of the Harvard edition. Wozniak catalog #62. It comprises his edited Gifford Lectures on natural theology, which were delivered at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland in 1901 and 1902. The lectures concerned the nature of religion and the neglect of science in the academic study of religion. Soon after its publication, Varieties entered the Western canon of psychology and philosophy and has remained in print for over a century. It’s perhaps considered the greatest book ever published on the psychology of religion.
