Detailed Product Description
New York, Scribner's, 1944, 1st edition. 269 pp. Teal cloth hardcover with gilt titles and no dust jacket. Near Fine with former owner's bookplace on FEP.

Santayana was a philosopher, essayist, poet, and novelist. The 16 chapters of this book take us from Santayana's ancestry though his undergraduate and graduate studies at Harvard. In between we hear about his father, his mother, the family of his Spanish mother's first husband (the proper Bostonian Sturgises), his sister Susana (the love of his life, apparently), Avila, very early memories, his "exile" to America, his life with his Sturgis-infatuated mother at Beacon Street, Latin School, the Catholic Church which saturates his soul, then four chapters about Harvard and his friends.
