Stanley's History of Philosophy, 1655
Item Details
Description
Heading:
Author: Stanley, Thomas
Title: The History of Philosophy. Containing those on whom the Attribute of Wise was conferred
Place Published: London
Publisher:Humphrey Moseley, and Thomas Dring
Date Published: 1655
Description:

3 parts in 1. [8], 120; [2], 19; [2], 119, [14] pp. With 7 copper-engraved plates. (Folio) 27.3x16.3 cm (10¾x6"), period calf. First Edition.

The first history of Philosophy in English, Stanley's work was published in a series of parts from 1655 to 1662. The present volume treats of the Pre-Socratic, Ionic, and Socratic philosophers, and is to be deemed a complete text in itself. ESTC indicates there should be nine plates; the present copy has seven, none of which is a frontispiece, and other copies dated 1656 are also found with only seven plates. The frontispiece portrait of Thomas Stanley was perhaps added to the work only with the 1661 publication of the third volume, and it is often bound at the front of this third volume. This 1655 imprint is extremely rare.

Condition
Covers worn, front detached, old paper label affixed; title page with marginal darkening, edge and corner wear; overall very good.
