About this Item

5 volumes. The third edition, new impression. 8vo, publisher’s original maroon polished cloth lettered and decorated in gilt on the spines and stamped in blind with panel designs on the covers, each volume housed in the rare dustjackets. xxxvii, 594; 576; ccxxxi, 543; 645; ccxxxviii, 541 pp. A very fine set, fresh and clean and very handsome withal, the cloth protected by the dustjackets and thus unusually bright and especially well preserved, essentially as pristine, the jackets just a bit mellowed by age and still in quite excellent condition with just some very minor edge-wear occasionally evident. A HIGHLY IMPORTANT WORK AND the best edition of the best translation. Jowett was a great favorite at Oxford University and most famous for his classical translations. Robert Lynd wrote of him in 1925 that "Jowett is one of the few (writers who have the luck to go down to posterity as satellites of the supreme men of genius), and it not likely that for many generations to come English readers will be able to think of Plato without thinking of Jowett’s Plato. He aimed in his translation at producing the effect of an original work." He accomplished this, not at the sake of scholarship or accuracy, and was able to translate the current of life that runs throughout this great masterpiece. These are considered to be by far the best translations of Plato's DIALOGUES. This revised edition contains a new general Preface which recounts the history of the work and gives some appreciation of Jowett's involvement in the study of Plato. As well, there is marginal analysis and an index of subjects and proper names. The sequence of the Dialogues has been changed, and there are other minor changes of form, and textually very few alterations were made but for important corrections and additions.
