viii, 331 pages, xix pages. Here Mencken in his anti-theological point of view states "revelation as a moral sanction has serious limitations" as he believes that ethical problems are inseparable from individual and social life. Although this is a scientific approach to morality, he understands there is the reality of moral experience and inherited values. His writing is concise but the thoughts are deep and worth serious reflection. Bound in dark blue cloth stamped in blind, spine lettered and decorated in gilt, a near fine copy in very good unclipped dust jacket with some toning and chipping to head. Very nice.
