Letters to Eugenia; or, A Preservative Against Religious Prejudices. Translated from the French By Anthony C. Middleton., Holbach, Baron D' [Paul Henri Thiry] [Thiery] [Thierry] d'Holbach
2 Holbach, Baron D' [Paul Henri Thiry] [Thiery] [Thierry] d'Holbach Letters to Eugenia; or, A Preservative Against Religious Prejudices. Translated from the French By Anthony C. Middleton.
At the Office of the Boston Investigator Josiah P. Mendum 1857 Hard Cover Good 12mo - over 6" - 7" tall 
281 pages + publisher's advertisements. Blindstamped, dark brown hardcover is worn at edges and corners; beginning to fray. Spine is faded. Writing on front free endpaper. Pages are heavily age toned, with pencil check marks and pencil lines in the page margins; there is also some staining present. Pages 48-49 heavily darkened, probably from paper placed between the pages. The lower corner of one page is wrinkled and the top corner of another page is turned down. Born Paul Henrich Dietrich in Germany, Paul Henri Thiry (also spelled Thiery or Thierry) inherited the estate and title of a French uncle and became a prominent academic, skeptic, and atheist. Letters to Eugenia was written in 1768; the English translation by Middleton was published in 1857. "Paul-Henri Thiry, Baron d'Holbach was a philosopher, translator, and prominent social figure of the French Enlightenment. In his philosophical writings Holbach developed a deterministic and materialistic metaphysics which grounded his polemics against organized religion and his utilitarian ethical and political theory. As a translator, Holbach made significant contributions to the European Enlightenment in science and religion. He translated German works on chemistry and geology into French, summarizing many of the German advances in these areas in his entries in Diderot's Encyclopedia. Holbach also translated important English works on religion and political philosophy into French. Holbach remains best known, however, for his role in Parisian society. The close circle of intellectuals that Holbach hosted and, in various ways, sponsored produced the Encyclopedia and a number of revisionary religious, ethical, and political works that contributed to the ideological basis for the French Revolution." (LeBuffe, Michael. Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy).
