About this Item
Early calf rebacked, spine dry, outer joints cracked, front board loose but attached, corners worn. Paper repair to margins of title, some soiling and discoloration internally but mostly clean and unmarked. (xx), 386pp. A hugely influential book and one of the outstanding examples of 17th century empiricism (though always tinged with Browne's slightly off-base belief system) - Browne set out to refute pervasive untruths through "Authority, Sense and Reason." a panoply of unicorn horns, griffins, basilisks, snails, badgers, sneezing, bipedalism, Eve and the serpent, and the Tower of Babel being erected against a second flood. Thousands of years of received wisdom scrutinized and refuted. Size: Quarto (4to). Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilo. Category: Magic, Paranormal & Occult; Inventory No: 044904.
