Footnotes and Marginalia

George Santayana (1863-1952), Soliloquies in England and Later Soliloquies (London: Constable and Company Ltd., 1922), p. 124:

Santayana's own scrawled comments, from the margins of books in his personal library, have now been collected in two volumes by John McCormick (Cambridge: MIT Press, 2011).
