New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1966.
First edition. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed by the author to writer William F. Buckley on the front free endpaper, "For William Buckley with a credit for early stylistic inspiration George Gilder." Some notes in Buckleys hand, near fine in a very good dust jacket. The author, George Gilder worked for many years at the National Review,the political magazine founded in 1955 by William F. Buckley. Buckleys thinking has loomed large on Gilder, with the latter writing in regards to God and Man at Yale, ”it is still correct and prophetic. It defines the conservative revolt against socialism and atheism on campus and in the culture and reconciles the alleged conflict between capitalist and religious conservatives.” A nice association linking these two seminal figures of conservative thought.
