About this Item

Folio. Full leather. (8), 20, 726, (8) pp. Collated and complete, with a few pages misnumbered. A work examining various aspects of the Bible, seeking, among other topics, to prove that Greek deities originated from the source of Moses, and that the Old Testament was the source of Greek myths. Huet also sought to debunk Cartesian philosophy, as well as disputing the work of Spinoza in his Tractatus Theologico-Politicus. This work marked his first attack on the philosophy of Descartes. (see Shelford: Transforming the Republic of Letters for previous information). Pierre Daniel Huet was a French scholar, as well as serving as Bishop of Soissons, and was noted for his skepticism, especially his anti-Cartesian views. POOR/FAIR condition. Both covers DETACHED, with the first endpapers and half-title also detached. Leather also DETACHED from the boards, suffering heavy chipping, fading, loss, and VERY heavy wear. Leather very dry, cracked and brittle on the spine, with some loss. Remains of a sticker on the lower spine. NEEDS REBINDING. Some staining to the rear endpaper, with minor insect damage and a single wormhole affecting the upper portion of the last 20-30 pp, as well as the rear board. The text block is solid, in a much better stated than the exterior, with minor scattered soiling and a small dampstain at the upper margin. Faint browning to the paper, mostly along the extremities. A few pages creased, with one bearing a small tear/piece missing in the fore edge margin, not affecting text. Title partially underlined in pencil. Bookseller Inventory # 005934
