A great and grand characteristic book in the true traditional spirit of Chesterton. The stories, chapters and notes of the special book range over all sorts of things from lady barristers to cavemen, and from psychoanalysis to free verse. In the introduction Chesterton says: 'The wild theorists of our time talk of making new roads, they are only making new ruts.' 'When a man tells us that he disapproves of children being told fairy-tales, it is we who can perceive that he himself is a fairy.' 'Or when an education philosopher tells us that the child should have complete equality with the adult, . . . the natural suggestion will come; that the baby should take its turn and carry the mother' . . . . 'It is only those who have ordinary views who have extraordinary visions.' Some of the chapter headings are The Romance of Rhyme, On Being an Old Bean, Wings and the Housemaid, The Terror of a Toy, False Theory and the Theatre, The Sentimentalism of Divorce, Why Reforms Go Wrong, The Prudery of the Feminists, How Mad Laws are Made, Much Too Modern History, Is Darwin Dead, Turning Inside Out, etc. Hardcover edition, gold embossed cover, sewn signatures, cream paper, 274 pages.
