I always have and always will be. It was not until then I realized I have never read a page from the book. I had always considered it a Salvador Dali illustrated book without any concern or thought as to the author.
After thinking about it logically, Essays must be a good read. Otherwise, the publishers would not have chosen a famous artist such as Dali to illustrate a book from an author who died centuries ago.
Amazon has the unsigned version listed at almost 23, in the best sellers ratings, but it is 1 in philosophy of the Modern Renaissance. I have always liked that website. It has always been a very reliable source of information that is interesting and thorough. I found it during Philosophy my first year in college.
It was from that site I learned Leibniz did not only write about the nature of metaphysics, but was also a well- known philosopher. Montaigne was born in He led an interesting life.
Stanford wrote that people should consider Montaigne a philosopher and not only a writer. To only think of him as a writer would be to disregard a disturbing thinker.
It also mentioned he was partially responsible for the genre of the essay as a form of writing. That is very impressive.
Essays Of Michel De Montaigne signed by Salvador Dali
His first three books, one of which he entitled Essays, were of profound philosophical thought. I could go on but will stop there. Anyone inclined to read his work obviously can do so. I realized I now need to buy a reading copy of the book after I sell it.
I hardly ever read my collectible editions. Here is a topic I would like some feedback or opinions about.
Before listing the book for auction on Ebay, I wanted to find out if anyone else had a copy for sale. There was none similar to my book, but there was a copy of another book signed by Salvador Dali.
It was a limited edition. It was published over twenty years later than mine and there were 2, signed copies instead of 1, My copy was obviously rarer; especially in the condition it is in.
There was no starting bid. I never understood why people use reserve prices on bidding.
Is that a subtle way of having others bid on something because some of them may not want to buy it if the actual starting bid was posted. Anyway, a week went by and noone met the reserve price. So more than ten people spent their week bidding on a book and not one of them owns it. I would usually suggest not bidding on things with a reserve price but there were a few times I wanted something enough that I was willing.
One time, I spent a week bidding on a magazine and noone met the reserve or won the magazine. I sent a rather nasty email to the person explaining and asking why or what the purpose of this action was. He said it is more fun that way… What do you think?
