|Abstract|| An early collection of writings and talks of Abdu'l-Baha.|
|Notes|| Eunice Braun, in Know Your Bahá'í Literature (1968), writes "In 1936 the Guardian wrote to the NSA not to make a new edition of this work because 'this book has in large part been taken from notes recorded at the time but which do not constitute an authentic text of the Master's word's'" (p. 11). At the same time, this book has the colophon "Approved by Bahá'í committee on publications." William Collins, in Bibliography of English-Language Works on the Babi and Bahá'í Faiths, writes "[this is] a collection of wisdom attributed to 'Abdu'l-Bahá. Sources are not indicated for most of the items and some of the quotations are questionable, thus lessening the value of this compilation. It does, nevertheless, give a sense of how early Western Bahá'ís were introduced to the teachings of their faith" (p. 10). The book was "authorized", as indicated by the editor's note on the title page: "At the suggestion of Abdul Bahá these notes on Divine Philosophy, together with a short introductory history, have been compiled and published by Isabel Fraser Chamberlain."|
