A re-issue with a modified preface of the first part of La vie et l'esprit de Mr. Benoit de Spinosa', first printed by Charles Le Vier in 1719, which had circulated in manuscript since the beginning of the century. This is the earliest biography of Spinoza, most likely commenced shortly after his death and finished at the latest in 1688 (Wolf). It is usually attributed to Lucas, but also to Dominique de Saint-Glain and to Jan Vroese[n]. Lucas was a French freethinker who fled to Holland where he published several periodicals and was fined repeatedly for offending Louis XIV. He was probably also the author of the famous atheistic tract Spirit of Spinoza'.Pages 45-47 are taken by a Catalogue des ouvrages de Mr. de Spinosa'.
