Description Original half calf. Marbled boards, leather spine,with gilt decoration and titles. A historical paraphrasing of the gospels by Locke. The introductions states that there is a map of the Bible Lands in the book. This is certainly present in the 1st edition, but is NOT present here. The British Library copy also appears not to have a map.
Note John Locke (1632–1704) was an English philosopher and physician, widely regarded as one of the most influential of Enlightenment thinkers. He established the idea of the Self as the Continuity of Consciousness - and the theory that the mind was blank at birth, devoid of innate ideas - a ‘tabula rasa’
Bibliography 320. pp
Condition The boards and spine are a little rubbed, with some chipping to the edges. Internally somewhat darkened / foxed. The title page has lines (a pattern) drawn in ink around the edge of the border, and a crossed out name. The verso has a list of words (apparently written in 1731) in ink,and a couple of other names / annotations to the initial pages. Page 1. has a closed tear to the top third of the book. The text is legible despite the foxing. A couple of minor tears elsewhere.
