London: Hodder and Stoughton, 1948.
First edition. Original beige cloth with wrapper severed at spine. Inscribed by the author, Eli Stanley Jones (1884ñ1973) theologian, and author, noted for his inter-religious lectures to the educated classes in India, thousands of which were held across the Indian subcontinent during the first decades of the 20th century."To Violet Oakley, with gratitude for the day, August 10, 1949. E. Stanley Jones. With four very lengthy manuscript notes by an as yet unverified individual, pulling out highlights from the book, and interestingly, this: "In answer to my letter telling Gandhi that I had a gift to deliver (from Violet)- he sent me a print saying, 'Do come whenever you like. Monday is my day of silence.'" Plus a smaller two-page note in pencil. As well, a carbon copy of a long quote with pencil annotations at end on onion skin copy paper laid in, dated 1950. A fascinating group of notes, as yet, unmined.
