"I wrote 'Descent fromEden' partly to explain to myself and to others the meaning and significan ce of events and people I encountered as a boy, partly to recreate fancies that pleased me, and partly to record the struggle in my own mind between an environmentally acquired Puritanism and an outgoing nature which collidedwith it." -from Cogswell's explanatory note on the front flap of the dustj acket. Very light sunning to top edge, else very good in clean, crisp dustjacket. Signed without inscription by Cogswell on the title page. An excellent copy. 60.00
