Leviathan, sive De materia, forma, & potestate civitatis ecclesiasticae et civilis. Authore Thoma Hobbes, Malmesburiensi.
Very rare third Latin edition of Leviathan, bound by a contemporary reader with the first edition of Richard Cumberland’s masterpiece, one of the key contemporary critiques of Hobbes’ work but also, in its own right, a work of great theoretical originality and power. The Latin version of the Leviathan, first published by Hobbes in 1668, ‘differs considerably from the English: it is in the Latin version which Hobbes really expressed his opinions’ (M&H).
