Pancoug: signature and inscription on title -- deleted signature on flyleaf -- Thomas Lynn Bristowe: armorial bookplate -- [Lathrop Harper] FIRST EDITION OF THE ONLY MAJOR PHILOSOPHICAL WORK BY LEIBNITZ PUBLISHED IN HIS LIFETIME. "In the preface to the Théodicée , Leibniz declares that there are two famous labyrinths in which our reason goes astray: the one relates to the problem of liberty (which is the principal subject of the Théodicée ), the other to the problem of continuity and the antimonies of the infinite" (DSB). The work was composed with the encouragement of Sophia Charlotte of Brandenburg, who wished a reply to Pierre Bayle's view that faith and reason are in opposition. Leibnitz himself sought to reconcile philosophy and theology and to combine physics and metaphysics. The work includes a reply to the views of Thomas Hobbes on liberty, and a brief essay on the qualities of the deity. PMM 177.
