Description: HUET, P.D. Demonstratio evangelica, ad serenissimum Delphinum. Par., S. Michallet, 1679. (4), 20, 725, (1) pp. W. lge woodcut ti-vign. Fol. Cont. blind tooled vellum w. raised bands. (Slightly browned/foxed in places). Fine copy of this very important work examining various aspects of the Bible, seeking, among other topics, to prove that Greek deities originated from the source of Moses, and that the Old Testament was the source of Greek myths. Huet also sought to debunk Cartesian philosophy, as well as disputing the work of Spinoza in his Tractatus Theologico-Politicus. This work marked his first attack on the philosophy of Descartes. Pierre Daniel Huet was a French scholar, as well as serving as Bishop of Soissons, and was noted for his skepticism, especially his anti-Cartesian views. - First edition. Graesse III, 384.
Estimated Price: € 650
