Intellectual Lifeby Philip Gilbert Hamerton
This vintage book contain a series of fictitious letters addressed to actual persons known to the author, written with the "intention of providing a guide to help aspiring intellectuals adopt the mores and mannerisms conducive to the furtherance and maintenance of an intellectual lifestyle." A tome of timeless value, this book will be of as much utility today as it was when fist published, and is recommended for the young intellectual intent on embracing a scholarly lifestyle. Philip Gilbert Hamerton (1834 - 1894) was an English author, artist, and art critic. Other notable works by this author include: "Camp in the Highlands" (1863) and "Etching and Etchers" (1866). Many antiquarian texts such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
