PHILOSOPHY -- (SPINOZA, B. de). Traitté des ceremonies superstitieuses des juifs tant anciens que modernes. Amst., J. Smith, 1678. (14), 531, (31), 30 pp. 12°. Cont. mottled cf. w. dec. gilt back & red label. (Spine ends dam., joints (partly) split (front side loosening), first 8 lvs. of preface lack).

First French edition of the Tractatus theologico-politicus, translated by G. de Saint-Glain. The French translation was published at the time with three different title-pages (each with a different title and a different address), as the first Latin edition was banned almost immediately after publication in 1670. This edition is also important because of the second part, which consists of Spinoza's Remarques Curieuses, et necessaires pour l'Intelligence de ce Livre. These annotations were made by Spinoza a few months before his death in 1677 and are here published for the first time. Rare. - Linde 12; Cat. Wolf Coll. 372. Cf. Printing and the Mind of Man 153.
