Armand Gaston CAMUS & ARISTOTE Histoire des animaux d'Aristote

Armand Gaston CAMUS & ARISTOTE

Histoire des animaux d'Aristote

Chez la veuve Desaint, à Paris 1783, in-4 (20x26cm), 758pp. et 850pp., 2 volumes reliés.

First edition of the French translation of Camus with the Greek text in regard.Plein calf marbled time. Smooth back decorated with two boxes to the Grotesque and two chains, nets and wheels. Pieces of red morocco title and volume numbers in black morocco. Hat Volume I threadbare. Frottements.La translation of Camus is quite estimated, it concerns only the first volume, while the second brings the notes and observations of Camus about the modern natural history. It also establishes the importance of the work of Aristotle and his influence on the literature of natural history. Found an interesting table for identifying animals in Aristotle in Greek, Latin and French. This second part is very erudite and contains many references to other works, she describes in situ every animal that is found in the treatise of Aristotle. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.
