xiv, 308; viii, 311 pages; Contemporary brown half calf over pattern-printed paper-covered boards, five raised bands on the spine, gilt-lettered labels in tan and light blue, plain endpapers, edges decoratively stained red. Two volumes bound in one. These volumes form part of a larger series: Geschichte der Künste und Wissenschaften seit der Wiederherstellung derselben bis an das Ende des achtzehnten Jahrhunderts. Von einer Gesellschaft gelehrter Männer ausgearbeitet. Of which these volumes form the fourth division -- [Vierte Abtheilung. Philologie. I. Geschichte des Studiums der griechischen und römischen Litteratur. Bände 1 und 2)]. The esteemed German historian Arnold Hermann Ludwig Heeren was born October 25, 1760 in Arbergen; and died March 6, 1842 in Göttingen. He studied at the University in Göttingen -- history, literature and philosophy, and after travels in France, Italy and the Netherlands, he was appointed in 1787, a professor of philosophy, and then of history, at Göttingen. He had a modern point of view of history -- through an examination of economics, constitutions, and financial systems, rather than a rote repetition of facts, Heeren was able to throw new light on the development of the Old World. He is now considered the pioneer in the movement for the economic interpretation of history. This is a nearly ideal copy of one of his best known works. The condition is splendid, apart from faint stains to the corners of the endpapers (a transfer from the folded under leather used in making the spine and corners of this handsome binding). First edition. OCLC Number: 10217716.
