Frankfurt, Wechel, 1589. - 8°. 111 pp., with printer s device on the title Newer half-calf with marbled boards "VD 16 T 323. Uncommon German edition, published first in London in 1580. The logician William Temple (1555?1627) was the fourth Provost of Trinity College, Dublin. He was an early supporter of the renewed, anti-aristotelian logic as presented by Pierre la Ramée. "In 1580 he replied in print to an attack on Ramus's position by Everard Digby. Adopting the pseudonym "Franciscus Mildapettus of Navarre" (Ramus had studied in youth at the Parisian Collège de Navarre), he issued a tract against Digby. The work was dedicated to Philip Howard, 1st Earl of Arundel, whose acquaintance Temple had made while the earl was studying at Cambridge. Digby replied with great heat next year, and Temple retorted with a volume published under his own name. This he again dedicated to his patron the Earl of Arundel, and he announced his identity with Mildapettus. Temple's contributions to the controversy attracted notice abroad, and this volume was reissued at Frankfort in 1584 (in fact: 1589)" (Wikipedia). " "- Some browning due to the quality of the paper, little underlining in pencil, otherwise well preserved. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
