Red leather spine, marbled paper over boards, gilt titles, marbled endpapers. Three philosophical works by Claude Buffier, a Jesuit philosopher, with notes and introduction by Francisque Bouillier. Includes: Traite des premieres verites; Elements de metaphysique; Examen des prejuges vulgaires. Buffier's aim in the first work (his most well known) is similar to Rene Descartes's, in that he is attempting to discover the first principles of knowledge. His analysis of the human mind was also quite similar to that of John Locke, and Voltaire described him as the only Jesuit with a reasonable system of philosophy.
