Jealousy as a disease of the mind

1121. [Jealousy]

[COURTIN, Antoine de]

Traité de la jalousie, ou Moyens d'entretenir la paix dans le mariage [...].

Paris, H. Josset, 1685

12mo: [16]-526-[10] pp. (some min. browning and spotting, ms. annotations at the end).

Contemp. sheep, gilt-orn. spine with raised bands, red sp. edges (corners bumped and rubbed, sides and covers rubbed, joints starting to split).

Later ed. (1st 1682) by the French diplomat and man of letters A. de Courtin (1622-1685). He tackles the popular belief at the time that jealousy is proof of love and presents it as a biological and mechanical concept hoping his treatise would bring peace to marriages.
