A nice set of Descartes' writings, with a contemporary French bookstore tag (a shop in Orléans) on the verso of the free front endpaper. René Descartes was one of the founders of modern philosophy, with his Meditations remaining a foundational text in the field. It brought him the attention of famous figures like Princess Elizabeth, with their correspondence remaining key to understanding Descartes' methodology. These volumes include their correspondence. Like John Locke, Descartes remains a major figure in the philosophy of mind. Very Good+. Item #00009567
