New York: Doubleday, Page, 1912. Octavo. Item #027514
. 232 pages. A beautiful copy of the rich essays of David Grayson on friendship bound in suede and housed in the original box provided by the publisher. Like Aristotle and Emerson, he speaks of the treasure of what it is to be a friend. Although he became President of Stanford University and was well-educated, writing under the pen name of David Grayson he writes through the eyes of a simple good farmer. The story of Anna is here which tells of the compassion of a Scottish preacher and the farmer who want to help her as she being unmarried fled her home and the judgment of the community only to find true love for her and her child.
