“He who neither thinks for himself nor learns from others, is a failure as a man.” ­

– Hesiod

 

A rare, early 17th-century printing of the works of Hesiod, a Greek poet who is thought to have been a peer of Homer. Only three surviving works have been attributed to Hesiod, of which, ‘Theogony’ is the most famous. ‘Theogony’ describes the origins and genealogies of the Greek gods, beginning with the first gods through the children of Zeus and the life of Prometheus. Hesiod had a profound effect on early Greek philosophy, early rhetoric, and the development out of archaic religious beliefs.

 

This 1613 edition was published in both Latin and Greek and edited by famous Dutch scholar Daniel Heinsius.
