Description: PHILOSOPHY -- (HEMSTERHUIS, F.). Aristée ou de la divinité. Paris (= Haarlem?/The Hague?), 1779. x, 208 pp. W. 3 small etchings in text (1 on ti.-p.). 12°. Cont. hcf., gilt spine w. red label. (First blank fails (as in most of the copies), corners and edges a bit rubbed/worn, but in fine interior condition). "In 'Aristée' Hemsterhuis, who originally believed in a personal God, is converted to a clear pantheism. God's omnipresence is the basis of man's relation with him, and it is mainly thanks to the moral principle, as the "moral organ" is called in later years, that man is able to come nearer to God." Encycl. of Phil. III, p. 474. - First edition. Copy on large paper (as all copies are), printed for private circulation only. Stoddard 9 ("Note that only KB copies 1 & 2 preserve the initial blank leaf."). With the bookplates of Albert Verwey and Buijnsters/Smets.
Estimated Price: € 360
