MONTAIGNE’S ESSAYS (BKS 1006)
Reference Code: BKS 1006
This is a reprint of the first English translation of Montaigne’s famous essays, done by John Florio in 1603. Florio’s translation has long been thought to have influenced Shakespeare (and some have even speculated that Florio was Shakespeare). This 3-volume hardback set was published in the Everyman’s Library series in 1965 with an introduction by L. C. Hammer. Each volume is approximately 4.9 inches wide, 7.3 inches tall, and 1 inch thick. Pagination is as follows:
Volume 1: xxiv+372
Volume 2: vi+523
Volume 3: viii+410
The books are in good condition. The dustjackets show extensive creasing, fraying, chipping and rubbing. The boards are largely clean but show rubbing along the edges and are bent at the corners. The bindings are solid. The page edges exhibit some foxing and staining. Internally there is some foxing, but other than this the pages are clean, with no tears, inscriptions, stamps, or creases.
