Margaret (mjbcoffee) | 18 comments In the mid-1960s, I had a very old paperback book that I had found with ( I think!) a red and yellow cover. It was a generic history of philosophy book that had chapters (?) on different philosophers like Plato etc. . For some reason it was one of my favorite books at the time. It may have had a printed price on the bottom of the cover which was either 15 cents or 25 cents ot there about. I have been looking for this book for years!

The vol. containing Plato - A History of Philosophy 1.1 by Frederick Charles Copleston

Margaret (mjbcoffee) | 18 comments Thank you, but it's not the book I was looking for. I think the bottom half of the book was bright red and the top bright yellow, and it was already an old-ish book in the mid '60s.

Margaret ~~
You can "bump" your thread every month or so. This pushes your thread back to the top of the folder instead of languishing here on page 209 from seven months ago where fewer eyes will see it. Get back in the game! Bump!
You can do this by typing a new comment at the end of the thread, or even by typing the word "bump."
Good luck!
