Apud viduam Ant. De Harsy. 1617 GREEK Theophrastus Philosophy Metaphysics Characters Moral Ethics Casaubon “Time is the most valuable thing a man can spend.” ― Theophrastus Theophrastus was a 4th-century BC Greek philosopher known for his studies in metaphysics and logic of Aristotle and Plato. One of his remaining works was ‘Characters’, a book on morality. Theophrastus outlines types of morals which is most important for describing the life and human nature of his time. This work is known to be the first recorded attempt at systematic character writing. Interestingly, this same work would be the basis for Isaac Casaubon’s first work of illustrative commentary. This 1617 bilingual edition was edited and translated by Casaubon and a reissue of the original 1592 edition; however, this edition is considered the best and most complete of all the editions. Casaubon’s own commentary and notes are also featured in this edition. Sandys states that this edition includes 28 of Theophrastus’ characters, an increase of five from any previous printing.
