London: Longmans, Green and Co., 1902.
First British edition, first printing. Publisher's grey-green cloth binding with paper title label on spine. Good. Sunning and rubbing to cloth, with heavy bumping to the tail of the spine and associated short splits to the joints there. Pages toned. First blank is heavily annotated in ink, and beginning to detach. Frequent notations in light pencil throughout text. One of James' most enduring works, edited from lectured he delivered on natural theology at the University of Edinburgh. Originally designed to be the psychological component in a more comprehensive study of religion, these lectures focused on the human experience of religion, as opposed to aspects of theology or religious organizations. Some ideas in this book would later overlap with those found in his forthcoming book, Pragmatism. The uncommon British issue is widely considered to have proceeded the American. Item #140937070
