Description:

"Self-Love Is The Greatest Of All Flatterers"[RAMAGE, John, binder]. LA ROCHEFOUCAULD, Francois de. Maxims. London: Arthur Humphreys, 1911. Small octavo (5 5/8 x 4 1/4 in; 142 x 110 mm). [6], 115, [1] pp. Seven mounted engravings as head- tailpieces. Extra engraved title-page. Title in red and black.Bound by Ramage ca. 1911 in full brown levant morocco with double fillets and large, graceful corner-pieces in gilt. Gilt ruled and ornamented compartments. With the bookplate of G. Eisenberg to front pastedown endpaper. An occasional faint spot of foxing to margins, otherwise a fine copy of this precious and finely bound edition of one of the Western world's most celebrated works, with truths as fresh today as when originally written.François VI, Duc de La Rochefoucauld, Prince de Marcillac (1613-1680) was a noted French author of maxims and memoirs. His was a clear-eyed, worldly view of human conduct that indulged in neither condemnation nor sentimentality. His towering stature in French literature is based upon three works: his Memoirs, the Maxims and his letters. Of the pithy, elegant Maxims, La Rochhefoucauld made frequent alterations and additions to them during his lifetime and a few were added after his death. The majority consist of just two or three lines, and hardly any exceed half a page. La Rochefoucauld reflects on the conduct and motives of mankind, from the point of view of a man of the world who intends not to sugar-coat his observations. Born in London in 1836, John Ramage served an apprenticeship with John Wright, then went to Paris, where he was able to work with the distinguished Marcellin Lortic (1822-1892), who opened his shop on the Rue St. Honoré in 1840. In 1860 Ramage purchased the binding business of Alexander Banks, Jr., in Edinburgh, then returned three years later to London, where he was in business at various locations into the 20th century. Though the range of their designs is broad, Ramage bindings are celebrated for their remarkably delicate, careful, and elaborate gilt work. Bookseller Inventory #
