Socrates sanctus Paederasta: Commentatio societati regiae Gottingensi praelecta a. d. V. Febr. 1752: Accedit Eiusdem Corollarium de antiqua asinorum honestate
Utrecht: Joannis van Schoonhoven & Soc., 1769, 8vo. pp. i-iv; 61pp - Utrecht: Joannis van Schoonhoven & Soc., 1769, 8vo. pp. i-iv; 61pp. Originally published in an obscure scholarly journal in 1752, this erudite essay on Socrates and pederasty was lauded by Voltaire, which eventually resulted in this separate publication. Published in Latin, the essay discusses what was known about Socrates at the time and presents a learned survey of the Greek institution of paederastia and the Platonic-Socratic philosophy of love. A very good example of this uncommon treatise, bound in contemporary morocco boards, decorative leather spine, marbled endpapers, bookplate on front pastedown. Included is a bound translation of the text by Hugh Hagius ("Socrates the Holy Pederast"). Rare. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
