The anatomy of melancholy; a selection by Robert Burton( Book )

7 editions published between 1965 and 2004 in English and held by 458 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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
