Book is in Very Good+ condition: light edge wear and corner wear. Dust jacket is in Very Good+ condition: few nicks on edges; not price clipped. From the dust jacket: "In this beautiful and effective translation, the author has omitted extraneous material. Since so few people in our modern society study Latin, Mrs. Dingus wished to provide young and old alike with an easy-to-read English version of the classical philosophy regarding Old Age. She presents, in the foreword, her own impressions and offers a modern interpretation of how to best go about finding, in an age of rapidly advancing technology, the consolation to which Cicero so ofter refers. The author believes that the later years of life should continue to be enjoyable and productiv for each person. In this volume, she shows one and all how to obey nature gracefully and admit that character, instead of age, accounts for our faults. This advice from the ancient philosophers, recorded freely and with compassion, is the legacy of our modern world from the past. For the truths of the precepts stand today, just as they have throughout the ages."

3 The Road to 'Seventy Years Young' or The Unhabitual Way Bishop, Emily M.
New York B. W. Huebsch 1916 Fifth Printing Hard Copy Good+ No Jacket 12mo - over 6" - 7" tall 
B. W. Huebsch, New York, 1916. 205 pages. Book is in Good+ condition: discoloration on front board. bumped corners; light edge wear. From the Foreword: "Psychology teaches that 'the antecedent step to getting a thing done is to suggest it forcibly, or, in everyday parlance, 'to put it into his head'.' The purpose of this book is 'to put in into the heads' of its readers that they can add (1) life to their years, and (2) years to their life. The suggestions given herein are addressed quite as much to those who are still young in years as to those who have lived two or more score of years. There inevitable comes a time, sooner or later, when every one is personally interested in not growing old; and the earlier in life that one's attention is directed to rational ways of postponing oldness, the better for the individual. The idea that the writer has tried to present, simply and practically, is that man's responses and reactions to life are virtually within his own control; that the quality and number of his responses and reactions determine, to a large degree, his oldness or youngness." Chapter headings are: Old-Age Bugaboos; The Tendency of the Times; No 'Time-Expired' Men; Concerning Birthdays; Old Age a Condition; Habit and Old Age; Keep Out of Ruts; Body and Brain Commerce; The Habit of the Unhabitual; 'If To Do Where As Easy--'; Keeping the Body Young; Social Ruts; Domestic Ruts; Thinking and Feeling Ruts. Gift wrap and gift card available.
