About this Item

6 volumes in 4, 24mo (page height 5¼"), vignette title-p.,contemporary quarter polished tan calf over marbled boards, red morocco labels on gilt-decorated spines; very good. "This Treatise on World-History is the last noteworthy exercise in that type of universal history which, beginning with St. Augustine, interpreted the course of human history as a continuous manifestation of divine providence leading mankind towards salvation. Bossuet was the most famous court-preacher of Louis XIV. He wrote the Discours for the instruction of the Dauphin, whose tutor he was from 1670 to 1679; for history, Bossuet declared, is 'the counsellor of princes' a noble specimen of French prose." (PMM).
