[vi], 258 pp., errata leaf. Modern marbled boards, morocco label. First edition.
"An interesting attempt at applying Locke's account of the association of ideas to the reading of a text. The association of ideas is taken to be `the combination of those ideas, which have no natural alliance or relation to each other, but which have been united by chance.' The author uses this as a way of understanding the creative artist. The power of such an association `over the genius of the poet' consists in `supplying him with words and with ideas, which have been suggested to the mind.' That suggestion works by a `principle of union unperceived by himself (the poet) and independent of the subject to which they are applied.'"Yolton 1794.2.

Jourdain was assistant editor, and later chief editor, of 'The Monist', and Russell's lectures on logical atomism were published in 'The Monist' in 1918/19, but Jourdain and Russell fell out over payment for the lectures. Jourdain prepared for the press his work "The Philosophy of Mr. B*rtr*nd R*ss*ll" (published in 1918), Russell having given his blessing to the work in manuscript.
