WELCOME TO #SHABBYSUNDAY!
With this meme we share vintage books, heirlooms, or maybe some old books from our childhood we love. It’s a great meme and I really wanted to take part, so here’s my Shabby Sunday!
Today’s Shabby Share is:
The Extended Circle: A Dictionary of Humane Thought.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is a chunky tome, published 1st Jan 1990, and I love it for many reasons. Compiled by Jon Wynne-Tyson, The Extended Circle is a beautiful collection of thoughts, quotes and essays full of heartwarming and compassionate humane thoughts. There’s lots of famous people sharing their views on topics like their love of animals, vegetarianism, animal rights and related philosophy. I’ve owned this book a long while and I still like to pick this up every now and then and just flick through. There’s always something interesting to discover.
Incidentally, the author Jon Wynne-Tyson was a British author, publisher, activist and pacifist who founded independent publishing company Centaur Press in 1954.
Also, I was so excited I found this on Goodreads, as I couldn’t find it anywhere! Here are some pictures below for your viewing pleasure! 😉
