About This Item

Lyon: [apud] Jacobum Givnctam, 1542. (ii); ff 346; (ii) pages. Tiny hole in title-page, lacking final blank leaf. Nineteenth century continental dark green quarter morocco, one corner bumped. With the book plate of the educational reformer and founder of the Dartington Trust L. K. Elmhirst. The Aristotelian scholar Eutycus Augustine Niphus was introduced to the text of Averroes' work 'Destructio Destructionum' by his friend the philosopher Jerome Bernardus of Venice and saw that it was 'full of benefit'. As well he might; for though the work was badly translated and difficult to understand, it was by the great 12th century Arab polymath Averroes, himself an Aristotelian scholar. Under pressure from his friend, Niphus agreed to present his own interpretation, which in the text follows a series of contentions between Averroes and his fellow philosopher Algazel.. First Edition, thus. Hardcover. Very Good. 8vo.. Book.
