-----------hardcover, a Near Fine copy in a Near Fine dustjacket, looks new, ribbon marker as issued, 1336 pages, ---"Humanist, skeptic, acute observer of himself and others, Michel de Montaigne (1533- 1592) was the first to use the term -essay- to refer to the form he pioneered, and he has remained one of its most famous practitioners. He reflected on the great themes of existence in his wise and engaging writings, his subjects ranging from proper conversation and good reading, to the raising of children and the endurance of pain, from solitude, destiny, time, and custom, to truth, consciousness, and death. Having stood the test of time, his essays continue to influence writers nearly five hundred years later. Also included in this complete edition of his works are Montaigne’s letters and his travel journal, fascinating records of the experiences and contemplations that would shape and infuse his essays. Montaigne speaks to us always in a personal voice in which his virtues of tolerance, moderation, and understanding are dazzlingly manifest. Donald M. Frame’s masterful translation is widely acknowledged to be the classic English version"---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo
