Abbé BANIER Explication historique des fables, ou l'on decouvre leur origine & leur conformité avec l'histoire ancienne

Abbé BANIER

Explication historique des fables, ou l'on decouvre leur origine & leur conformité avec l'histoire ancienne

Chez François Le Breton, à Paris 1715, in-12 (9x17cm), (24) 424pp. et (4) 487pp. et (4) 500pp., 3 volumes reliés.


New edition, partly original and an increased volume troiqième after the first published in 1711 in two volumes; is illustrated as a frontispiece etched by Scotin Delamonce.
Bound in full brown sheepskin contemporary. Back tooled raised. Piece of red morocco title and volume number in brown morocco. Caps frayed heads. Tail cap Volume I pulled out. Rubbed together. 10 corners bumped.
Endowed with the thesis that poets were the first historians, Father Banier attempts to decipher the meaning of historical mythology and the true sources of fables. The book became a classic and was a great success. The whole is written in the form of interviews, fashionable shape then. Many footnotes pages. The third volume adds the study of several myths: that of Hercules, Jason and the Golden Fleece, Theseus, the Trojan war, and an explanation of Ovid's Metamorphoses. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.
