About this Item

1759. Second edition. Hardback. 342pp. Important Second edition, revised and expanded by Burke with a new Introductory discourse concerning taste, and several other additions. DNB says that this treatise, strange as some of its dicta are, was held by Johnson to be ' an example of true criticism' and that Burke never ceased to take a warm and discriminating interest in all artistic matters, and is said to have embraced the whole concerns of art, ancient as well as modern, foreign as well as domestic. Rebound in modern quarter morocco on marbled boards with new endpapers. Library stamps on three pages. Some foxing, otherwise a very good copy of this rare, early publication. Keywords: History, 18th Century Publications, Burke, Rare and Antiquarian Books, Philosophy. Not a first edition copy. . . . Books ship from the US and Ireland. Bookseller Inventory # KHS0058084
