Description:

small octavo, (lxxxvi), 259 pp. Edited and translated, and with a Biographical and Bibliographical introduction by Ernest C. Thomas. With an index. "The first work devoted entirely to the love of books. Richard de Bury was a noted bibliophile; in the volume's twenty short chapters he defends his passion. He argues that 'all things decay and waste away in time, and those whom saturn begets he ceaseth to to devour. Oblivion would overwhelm all the glory of the world, had not God provided for mortals the remedies of books.' At the end of his treatise, he acknowledges that his passion may have led him into the occasional venial sin, a confession that will be recognizable to the present-day collector as the ove of books that pervades the rest of the text." Rosenblum, A Bibliographic History of the Book, p. 360. Spine slightly faded, front endpapers and frontispiece slightly foxed. Hinges solid and no wear to the buckram. A handsome book printed at The Chiswick Press. maroon buckram over bevelled boards. Bookseller Inventory #
