Leide: Pierre Vander Aa, 1715. 1715 Thomas More UTOPIA 1st Gueudeville ed Socialism Communism Utopian Politics"[how can anyone] be silly enough to think himself better than other people"― Thomas More, 'Utopia'This famous book by Thomas More, 'Utopia,' depicts a fictional island society with its own social, religious, and political customs. First published in 1516, many 16th-century critics were curious and confused at the reason More wrote the work. Many aspects of 'Utopia'describe life in a monastery, yet still, More seems to be criticizing European society - which he considered to have many problems. More, a devout Catholic, writes of controversial topics which those on the island of Utopia practiced such as divorce, euthanasia, married priests, and female priests. These practices were widely opposed within the Catholic faith, but More cites them as commonplace in his writing. 'Utopia'is even polarizing in terms of modern politics. It seems to have been influential to Anabaptists, communism, and social Marxism. Though, 'the answer implied by "Utopia" was that political realities must be changed in order to free men." "More was claiming that community pressure could be made to correspond to and to endorse conscience and the way to achieve this was through institutional and legal regulation, supervision and control...the environment of the monastery." (Davis, 57-58).An incredibly rare first edition printing of Nicolas Gueudeville's translation of Thomas More's 'Utopia.' - Includes expected first issue points, see below.Item number: #10647Price: $950MORE, ThomasL'Utopie de T … [Click Below for Full Description]
