About This Item

BOSTON: DANA ESTES AND COMPANY, 1890 GRAY COVER, BLACK PRINT SPINE, INSIDE IS TIGHT AND CLEAN WITH NO MARKINGS. VOLUME NUMBER III OF THREE, LIBRARY RAISED STAMP TITLE PAGE. BURTON WAS A SCHOLAR AT OXFORD AND WROTE THIS QUITE DETAILED WORK IN AN EFFORT TO HELP HIMSELF AND OTHERS. HIS PASSION FOR PSYCHOLOGY HELPED GUIDE HIM. NO DATE, CIRCA 1890. Robert Burton (8 February 1577 – 25 January 1640) was an English scholar at Oxford University, best known for the classic The Anatomy of Melancholy. He was also the incumbent of St Thomas the Martyr, Oxford, and of Seagrave in Leicestershire. Burton's Melancholy focuses sharply on the self; unlike Bacon, Burton assumes that knowledge of psychology, not natural science, is humankind's greatest need. His enormous treatise is considered "delightful" by critics; it examines in encyclopaedic detail the ubiquitous Jacobean malady, melancholy, supposedly caused by an excess of "black bile", according to the humour theory fashionable at the time. The Anatomy of Melancholy (full title: The Anatomy of Melancholy, What it is: With all the Kinds, Causes, Symptomes, Prognostickes, and Several Cures of it. In Three Maine Partitions with their several Sections, Members, and Subsections. Philosophically, Medicinally, Historically, Opened and Cut Up) is a book by Robert Burton, first published in 1621, but republished five more times over the next seventeen years with massive alterations and expansions.
