"The Anatomy of Melancholy of Robert Burton (1577-1640) is a work of unique brilliance, the most detailed exploration in English on the subject, a journey through the intellect and imagination that becomes, as Kevin Jackson writes in his introduction, 'an anatomy of everything'. Copious, discursive, and endlessly curious about the world, Burton considers topics as diverse as the ideal society, werewolves, the weather, jealousy, coffee, the Great Cham of Tartary and whether California is an island. His extravagant prose was admired by Samuel Johnson and Lawrence Sterne, Byron and Keats and, in our own times, Anthony Burgess."--BOOK JACKET

The essential Anatomy of melancholy by Robert Burton( Book )

7 editions published between 2002 and 2017 in English and Slovenian and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"English churchman and scholar Robert Burton (1576-1639) was a passionate student of medicine, history, literature, and science--the whole of human knowledge. He was also a witty, pedantic, and eloquent genius, who devoted the major part of his life to writing The Anatomy of Melancholy, one of the richest, most inexhaustible books in the English language. Ostensibly an elaborately systematized medical treatise dealing with various morbid mental states--their causes, symptoms, and cures--the Anatomy is much more: a compendium of memorable utterances on the human condition in general, compiled from classical, scholastic, and contemporary sources. For this edition, the editors carefully selected those passages containing the most psychological and general interest, eliminating a good deal of nonessential material, but retaining the incomparable wit, eccentric charm, imagination, and richness of thought of the original. In short, readers will find here the essence of Burton's vast book--the passages which, according to W. H. D. Rouse, reveal the author's "eternal freshness, his own ingenuous interest, [and] his boyish delight in a good story." Unabridged republicaton of Burton the Anatomist, originally published by George H. Doran Company, New York, 1924." http://www.loc.gov/catdir/description/dover031/2002019234.html
