About this Item

Fate and fatalism is the topic explored here. Grotius has essentially collected extended passages from early Christian philosophers including some who wrote in Greek, and in such latter cases he provides translations. Also included is a section taken from Maimonides' Guide for the Perplexed. The work was originally published in same year at Paris by J. Camusat: This and that edition were published posthumously, Grotius having died in 1645. The dedication is signed by Grotius' widow, Maria van Reigersberch. The text is in Latin. Handsomely printed in roman with the title-page in red and black, some four-line woodcut initials, and some tailpieces, this bears the Elzevir printer's device Rahir M.17, but the book was actually printed by Joan Blaeu. Provenance: 18th-century armorial bookplate of Johann Georg Burckhard (1684?1764) and 20th-century bookplate of Dr. A. Hollander; ownership signature on title-page of L. Kulenkamp (1767) and 19th-century signature on front free endpaper of Dr. Cajetan Felaer; later in the collection of Frank Marshall Vanderhoof (American scholar, university librarian, private collector; 1919?2005). 12mo (12.7 cm; 5"). [4] ff., 384 pp. Copinger, Elzevier, 2000; Willems 1065; Rahir 1074; STCN 852310625. Contemporary vellum over boards. Spine lettered in black ink with author and title (probably late 19th century). Very good. Bookseller Inventory # 35680
