About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for The history of philosophy. . . . by ENFIELD, William.

Description:

4to. xxviii, 503, [53]; iv, 628 pp., including errata in both volumes. With the large folding plate, often missing. Full calf in a contemporary style, spine gilt in compartments, spine labels. An excellent copy from the library of Henry Stuart Page, Bibliotheca Warringtoniae, with his book plate on the front paste-down. First edition of this formative work by Enfield, a translation and rendering of Johann Jakob Bruckerís successful and extensive philosophical history, Historia critica philosophiae, originally published in 1742, the most important such text of the early Enlightenment. Enfieldís work spans centuries beginning with the ancient Hebrews and concluding with the contemporary philosophers of his time. Also included is the rare extraordinary multi-page folding plate charting each and every historical figure mentioned in this work. As he indicates in his preface, Enfield found Bruckerís Historia an essential reference for students, but virtually unusable to most because of his use of Latin. Enfield strove to take Bruckerís dry and long-winded work and turn it into something more interesting and lively by representing its meaning and spirit rather than a direct translation. His work is written in the vernacular to render it more accessible, as well as the distilling of Bruckerís lengthy six-volume set into a manageable two. Enfield writes in his preface: "In regard to language, I have found it wholly impractical to follow my author. His style is so exceedingly verbose, that it would have been impossible to have made these volumes a translation of select parts, without omitting others equally important, and without at the same time rendering the work tedious to an English reader . . . such a translation would only have furnished the English reader with a dry sketch of leading incidents an opinions; whereas, in this work, it is intended, not only to communicate information by a detail of facts, but to enliven the detail by anecdotes and reflections of various kinds" (preface, pp. vi-vii).Enfield (1741-1797) was a British clergyman and author who primarily published sermons and works on religious history. He "was an amiable and estimable man, an influential writer and persuasive preacher, and was a leading figure in the literary society of both Warrington and Norwich" (DNB). Bookseller Inventory #
