Confucius
London Printed for Randal Taylor, 1691 [but 1780]. 8vo., contemporary calf with plain sides; spine with five raised bands each surrounded by double gilt fillets and a morocco title label. All edges sprinkled red. An altogether UNSOPHISTICATED copy in WONDERFUL CONDITION.. This is a reprint of the Randal Taylor’s 1691 edition with a false imprint. It was translated and abridged from the Latin translation of Prospero Intocetta, Philippe Couplet and others or from an intervening French translation attributed to Louis Cousin or Jean de la Brune. Confucius is thought to have lived from 551-479 B.C. and is considered to be a political and ethical philosopher and would-be reformer who, although he failed to achieve his personal ambitions and successes, taught a large circle of disciples who carried on, developed, and greatly altered his teachings. The result was that by the second century B.C. his ideas formed the dominant philosophy of China until the early twentieth century. The work here begins with a Preface, followed by chapters that deal with his ideas on Morals; it concludes with a section entitled, Maxims, of which there are LXXX. A difficult to find book on all accounts and UNCOMMON in such fine condition. FINE COPY IN CONTEMPORARY CALF

FIRST EDITION of this distinguished study of the ancient sepulchral lamps discovered in the tombs and caves of Rome. These lamps are shown in intricately-engraved plates; the plates were designed and engraved by Bartoli, with explanatory notes by Gio Pietro Bellori. Subsequent editions were published in Berlin in 1702 and Rome in 1704, but this first edition contains 12 plates not found in the later editions. Bellori was a prominent biographer of the Italian Baroque artists of the seventeenth century. As an art historian, he was the Baroque equivalent of Giorgio Vasari. "Giovanni Pietro Bellori (1613-1696), an eminent Italian archaeologist, was born at Rome in 1613. From his youth Bellori devoted himself to the study of art and antiquity, in which he was encouraged, and at the outset greatly assisted, by his uncle, Francesco Angeloni, secretary to Cardinal Aldobrandini, himself a good antiquary, and author of an account of the coins of the Roman Emperors, and of the Historia di Terni. Bellori wrote many works of great use in their day and which are still often referred to with advantage...

The text while legible is somewhat rough, has trace foxing, the odd mild crease, mild age darkening at edges.
