What Our Customers Say...
Illustrated, Publishers' Original Binding, Uncommon
A uniform five volume set of works. A series of essays and letters by the French renaissance philosopher, Michel de Montaigne, born in 1533. The title page of each volume features Montaigne's famous quote 'Que scais-je?' which translates as 'What do I know?'. Despite his self-deprecation, Montaigne was an incredibly successful and influential writer who posed some interesting and important philosophical questions. Edited by William Carew Hazlitt, the bibliographer editor and writer. Each volume has a portrait to the frontispiece, each reproduced from portraits from the British Museum. Privately printed for The Navarre Society Limited.
In a full cloth binding. Externally, smart. Light bumping to the head and tail of the spine and to the extremities. Light spotting to the front and rear boards of each volume, with odd spots to the fore edge and bottom edge. Heavy offsetting to the front and rear endpapers of each volume. The odd pen mark to the front pastedown of each volume. Internally, generally firmly bound, though very slightly strained in places. Pages are generally clean with very light age toning.
