Science and Poetry

When I was in college a dear friend gave me a rare book that meant a lot to him, a first edition of I.A. Richards' Science and Poetry. It was actually Richards' personal copy of his book. It's fair to say that I did not really appreciate the gift at the time. 

Years later the book was lost and when my friend died earlier this year I went through some feelings and one of those feelings was guilt about the book. 

I found another first edition online; the exact copy I had is gone forever but it is nice to have this placeholder in my library.

The lesson is: hold on to your special books!

I am glad you were able to find a replacement.
