ERNEST DIMNET
The French priest, best known for his philosophical book The Art of Thinking, writes quick letter to an American colleague, planning out his new lecture schedule
Autograph letter signed: "Ernest Dimnet" in black ink. 1 page front and verso, 6x7. Written on personal letterhead. Paris, France. Auguest 5th, no year. Addressed to Mrs. Wainwright, in full: "The wish is so truly father to the thought that when I send your letter planning my charming two days at Scranton it did not occur to me to refer to my schedule. Now I find that my lecture at Columbia takes place on Wednesday the 18th of Nov. and consequently I cannot be in Scranton before Thursday morning. Perhaps you would arrange for the French lecture to take place at 11 o'clock, but it would be much better if we could get Prof. Milton J. Davies the director of the Institute of Arts and Sciences, Columbia University.] to move his date one week onward or backward. I am writing him. Would you write him also soon after receiving this so that you both may be certain at once? In haste et tres a vous". Ernest Dimnet (1866-1954) was a French cleric, author and philosopher. His best known work, The Art of Thinking (1930) invites the reader into a state of honesty where he evaluates himself as a thoughtful human being, for humans too often only "think of thinking" instead of actually thinking, which obstructs production of any original thought. Dimnet is also well regarded for his books, What We Live By (1932) and for his popular French translations of English books written by Charlotte, Emily, and Anne Bronte. Toned. Corners rounded. Light surface creases. Otherwise, fine condition.
