Wit and Wisdom of Chesterton by CHESTERTON, G. K.



This little volume, issued as a gift book for lovers of Mr. Chestertons writings in 1911, is made up from essays to be found in The Defandant, Varied Types and Tremendous Trifles. These 12 pieces were chosen to giving a peek into the margins of Chestertons work and give a sense of the distinctive flavor of his mind. They were also chosen with an eye to showing what a complex and fascinating character he was. (Summary by Phil chenevert)
