Though almost continuously in print from the date of publication until the present day, the first printing has long been considered an uncommon and desirable book; the present copy among the better examples we have handled, and of special interest for the included portrait and autograph.

Arakelyan on verso of title page; "wore" for "were" on p.210. Laid in are an original albumen photographic portrait of Bellamy and a card signed by the author, each with evidence of having been removed from an album - as found, but of unknown (and perhaps dubious) provenance. The book shows a bit of external soil, with dulling to spine gilt; endpapers foxed; text clean, and overall in an excellent state of preservation, easily Very Good. Bookseller Inventory # 17556

Book Description: Richard Sare, London: 1698., 1698. 8vo. A4,a-b8,B-Z8,Aa-Ii8,KK4+ 1 (Lacks F6, supplied in fine facsimile). [40],502,[4 ads]. 1/4 calf over green boards, spine with gilt title. Title page trimmed at bottom, no affect. Lacks F6, supplied in fine facsimile. Small hole to 2C1, with minor loss of few letters. Some spotting and light damp stains to outer margins. First Bellamy translation. Huarte (1530-90) was a native of French Navarre though he is often spoken of as a Spaniard. This work was originally written in Spanish though it went through seventy editions before 1700 in Spanish, Italian, French, Latin, and twice in English. This translation, the second in English, is taken from the enlarged edition of the work published in Baeza in 1594. "The author maintained that much reading and the best masters would not make a person proficient in a study for which he had no natural aptitude. He traced all variations of human genius to the three primary qualities, hot, moist and dry. He contended that eloquence and elegance in speaking could not exist in men of great understanding, and that the theory of theology pertained to the intelligence but preaching to the imaginative faculty.The theory of medicine was partly a matter of memory and partly intelligence, the practice of medicine a matter of imagination.(He) further discussed how fathers could generate intelligent and talented children." [Thorndike VI 413-4.]Bayle did not trust Huarte's maxims or authorities and said: ".he is not to be trusted.his hypotheses are frequently chimerical.many particulars (are) repugnant to modesty.and he deserves censure for publishing, as a genuine and authentic piece, a pretended letter.wherein a portrait is given of Jesus Christ."
