The Anatomy of Melancholy. Robert BURTON.

The Anatomy of Melancholy

Farrar & Rinehart, 1927. First Thus. Cloth. Binding is very sound, but covering over top of spine is removed. Corners are crushed. Fascinating inscription to original owner on flyleaf, a gift for his birthday on Halloween, 1930. This is the 1927 printing of Burton's landmark 1621 study. Part medical textbook, part philosophical treatise, part satirical memoir, Anatomy of Melancholy is a truly unique book that still holds many pleasures to the modern reader. Fair. Item #247
