About this Item

Pp. [lv], 356, [20]; [iv], 143, [3]; [iv], 12; 49, [3]. Contemporary full calf, densely gilt spine in compartments between raised bands, red morocco lettering piece, gilt, marbled pastedowns (front and rear free endpapers removed). Extremities rubbed, spine gilt dulled, foot of spine eroded, old ink notations to front endpapers, name in old ink on title, worm hole to lower margin of first fifty pages or so, otherwise a nice clean copy. Pascal's "Pensées", a series of religious meditations compiled from fragments of the author's notes, was first published eight years after his death, in 1670, with a preface by his nephew Etienne Périer. In addition to the "Pensées", the present edition reprints the "Discours sur les Pensées" by Jean Filleau de la Chasse, and also includes the First Edition of the Life of Pascal published by his sister Mme Périer in 1684. Pascal's work was designed as apology for Christianity against the scepticism of the age. He counters the rationalism of the philosophes with a deeper scepticism regarding the limitations of reason itself, offering in place of reason the revelations and insights of his personal experience, the "reasons of the heart" of which reason knows nothing. Brunet IV, 398. Graesse V, 14 6. Size: Small Octavo. Bookseller Inventory # 21847
