Life Against Death
  • Life Against Death


    Norman O. Brown. 


    Middletown: Wesleyan University Press, 1959. Octavo. Blue boards with silver lettering. Top right corner of the front board is bumped and there is a lengthy gift inscription on the first free end paper. Unclipped jacket has mild edge wear and chipping to the ends of the spine. A handsome first edition copy of Brown's first masterpiece. Very good.


    “For two thousand years or more man has been subjected to a systematic effort to transform him into an ascetic animal. He remains a pleasure-seeking animal.”
