NEW HAMPSHIRE'S CHILD
The Derry Journals of Lesley Frost
With notes and index by Lawrance Thompson and Arnold Grade. Robert Frost
once said, "The core of all my writing was probably those free years
I had down
on the farm a mile or two from Derry Village."
When Lesley Frost was not quite six years old, her parents encouraged her
to
begin a journal on her travels and adventures on or near the Frost farm in
Derry,
New Hampshire. Her little "stories" and poems, composed over a
four-year period,
gradually totaled more than 500 notebook pages. These journals, reproduced
here
for the first time, not only have a charming literary quality of their own
but, in
addition, throw valuable light on the personality of Robert Frost as companion,
playmate, botanizer, farmer, teacher, and poet during crucial years in his
develop-
ment: from 1905 through 1909.
The facsimile edition was designed by P. J. Conkwright, whose works have
been selected many times for inclusion in the "Fifty Books of the Year"
exhibitions
of the American Institute of Graphic Arts. Among its notable features are:
a
retrospective essay by Lesley Frost, which constitutes the most candid and
pene-
trating statement ever made in print by any relative of Robert Frost; the
full text
of a humorous poem written by Lesley's father especially for her; several
short
poems written by Robert Frost while in Derry; a special "Index";
and supple-
mentary "Notes," which place the journals in a narrative context,
at once historical,
geographical, and literary.
Two maps are conveniently presented as endpapers so those who literally or
imaginatively follow the Frosts can retrace some of the little travels made
by Lesley
with her parents in the neighborhood of the Frost farm, now a New Hampshire
State Historical Site.                     $9.95, 676 pp., SBN 87395-043-7

Evangelos P. Papanoutsos is Greece's leading contemporary philosopher and

philoso-
phical method, and the physical and humanistic sciences.

THE FOUNDATION OF PHENOMENOLOGY
Edmund Husserl and the Quest for a Rigorous Science of Philosophy
By Alarv'in Farber. In this widely-hailed and long out-of-print classic of
twentieth-
century philosophic commentary, Professor Farber explains the origin, develop-
ment, and function of phenomenology. "Step by step Professor Farber's
clear and
condensed presentation of this work follows Husserl's argument, and the reader
who
earnestly studies the respective chapters can be assured that nothing of
importance
in the German original has been withheld from him." - Alfred Scheutz
in Philoso-
phic Abstracts.
'This book, originally published in 1943, is still the best systematic exposition
of Husserl's thought and his quest for a presuppositionless, rigorous science
of
philosophy. A great deal has happened since, on the phenomenological scene,
and
interest in Husserl has been constantly growing. Thus it is most appropriate
that
Farber has offered a revised edition. . . . Highly recommended for students
and
scholars of philosophy, psychology, and sociology." -Choice. $4.95 paperbound,
