Les Meditations metaphysiques, de Rene Des-Cartes, touchant la premiere philosophie. Dedie'es a messieurs de Sorbone. Nouvellement divise'es par articles avec des sommaires à costé, & avec des renuois des articles aux Objections.
Michel Bobin & Nicolas Le Gras, Paris 1673 - Third French Edition, revised and corrected. 4to. pp. [38], 754. Decorative initials and ornamental head pieces at the beginning of each chapter. Contemporary calf boards (rubbed, corners neatly restored) re-backed including new hand sewn headbands. Original end papers are preserved but worn at the edges. Two names are written in a contemporary hand at the top of the title page (1 name is crossed out). Another name (also crossed out) is inscribed beneath the imprint; a small shelf number is written in the upper right corner. Pages are generally clean with occasional minor soiling and spotting. A narrow piece is missing from the upper margins of pp. 311-320 (4 cm. long x 5-7 mm. deep) - either from rough opening or from a manufacturing error; brown ink spot on fore-edge of text block; leaf T2 marked S2. Leaves remain untrimmed after last re-sewing. Descartes's "Meditations metaphysiques" was first published in Latin as "Meditationes de prima philosophia" (1641). The first French edition (printed in 1647) was produced by the Duc de Luynes under Decartes supervision. De Luynes translated the first part and Claude Clerselier the second. The "Meditations" offer the most detailed presentation of Descartes metaphysical system. [Tchemerzine IV, p.201-202; Brunet I, 609; Querard 758]. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
