A Fine unmarked copy with Fine dustjacket which is not price clipped. Printed on yellow paper. With the 'positive revolution' there are no enemies, but there can be just as much energy and direction. The weapons are perception and values - human behaviour has too often been shaped by guilt and negativity - it is time to lift this dark cloud and that is why the yellow of sunshine is the symbolic colour of the positive revolution. The hand is the symbol of the positive revolution - the thumb stands for effectiveness; the index finger points the constructive direction; the middle, and longest finger, represents respect and human values; the third finger stands for self-improvement; the little finger indicates a contribution that may be small but will gradually build. **** NOT EX LIB ****
