First French translation of three essays by the diplomat and author Sir William Temple (1628-99). A second edition was published in Leiden in 1719. 'Much of Temple's partial retirement from public life from 1681 to 1699 was spent writing, refining and publishing books and essays. From 1689 onwards he was assisted by his sometimes "petulant" secretary, Jonathan Swift. Temple's main political writings of this period were Of Popular Discontents (written around 1685, published 1701) and his most famous essay of all, a defence of the ancients entitled Upon the Ancient and Modern Learning (1690). Swift's satire, The Battle of the Books (1697), is a reply to Temple’s several critics in this continuation of largely French controversies about the relative merits of the ancients and the moderns' (Dictionary of Seventeenth-Century British Philosophers). 8vo, [xiv], 308 pp., contemporary speckled calf, spine gilt in compartments, lightly rubbed, small library shelf number in early ink on title-page, uniform light browning, a very good copy.
