I've been wanting this book forever and I've finally been able to get my hands on a copy! Walter Stace is one of my favorite authors/philosophers. This book is from the original 1960 printing and is in GREAT condition just like the seller promised. My school library has a copy but it is so dilapidated that it has to undergo acid testing or some such things before anyone can take it out. I used it for a paper once and I was afraid to even flip through it. I'm almost afraid to flip through this one because I want it to stay in nice condition forever, but hey, I got it to read it! This book is not in print anymore and I don't think it's been in print for a very long time so I'm thrilled to have a copy.
