The author traces the romantic and philosophical nineteenth-century concept of nature "in a synthesis of views derived from science, religion and philosophy; and shows how, in poets like Wordsworth, Emerson and Meredith, the abstract idea supports and is colored by their love for the 'beauteous forms' of the material world and their mystical sense of man's oneness with the universal spirit, providing them with a kind of substitute for dogmatic religion." Green cloth w/gilt lettering to front cover/spine, 618 pages (including Notes, Index). Bumped corners/spine ends, dusty/lightly tanned/lightly soiled edges, previous owner's signature neatly to front pastedown, in price-clipped dust jacket w/edgewear, chipping, sun-darkened spine, 1&1/2" tear to bottom edge of rear panel, general wear. Scarce in first edition in a dust jacket (this one now in a mylar sleeve). Heavier than the average book, so postage will be more than is usually the case.
