Thomas Browne
Pseudodoxia Epidemica; or, Enquiries into Very Many Received Tenents, and Commonly Presumed Truths.
1646. Thomas Browne. Pseudodoxia Epidemica; or, Enquiries into Very Many Received Tenents, and Commonly Presumed Truths. London: T.H. for Edward Dod, 1646. First edition. Folio (27 x 18 cm). [20], 386 pages, including license leaf. Contemporary calf ruled in blind, replaced spine-label; front cover re-attached, both covers with partially repaired chips, spine chipped with loss, endpaper renewed, some foxing and browning and wear at corners. Still, a good if not elegant copy. Keynes 73., ESTC R1093 [ Browne is one of very great English stylists. The subject hardly matters, whether it’s a discussion of geometrically-patterned gardens, of recently discovered ancient burials, or one of the thousands of essays on “Why I am a Christian.” This work is on misconceptions mostly about natural history, and worth reading to appreciate great writing. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
Bookseller: South Willington Book Cartel [WILLINGTON, CT, U.S.A.]
