Title: Three Treatises. The First Concerning Art. The Second Concerning Music Painting and Poetry. The Third Concerning Happiness Author: H[arris], J[ames] Place: London Publisher: J. Nourse and P. Vaillant Date: 1744 Description: [iv], 357 pp. (8vo) 7¾x5, later half calf and marbled boards. First Edition. The first treatise, 'Concerning Art, A Dialogue,' avoids the commonplace mimetic theories and introduces into English critical discussion the important aesthetic distinction between energy (energeia) and work (kinesis) derived from Aristotle's Nichomachean Ethics. 'A Discourse on Music, Painting, and Poetry' is notable for the supreme position allotted to poetry and for its praise of the musical-verbal symbiosis achieved in the Handelian oratorio. 'Concerning Happiness, A Dialogue' urges the primacy of imagination as a mode of intellection. Lot Amendments Condition: Spine and edges rubbed; pages browned; bookplate on front pastedown and embossed stamp on title page; else very good. Item number: 186518
