Welcome to Lachlan Cranswick's Personal Homepage in Melbourne, Australia

JPG images of The Art of Prudence: or, a Companion for a Man of Sense. Written originally in Spanish by that Celebrated Author Balthazar Gracian; now made English from the best Edition of the Original, and Illustrated with the Sieur Amelot de la Houssaie's Notes by Mr. Savage. London: Printed for Daniel Brown, without Temple Bar; J. Walthoe, in the Middle Temple Cloysters; and T. Benskin, at Lincolns-Inn Back-Gate, 1702.

(1702 English translation of Baltasar Gracian's (1601-1658) The Art of Worldly Wisdom by Mr Savage)

(Joseph Jacobs and L.B. Walton state that the 1702 translation was simply a revision of the earlier Anonymous (1685) translation; which was translated from the French version of Amelot de la Houssaie. Seeing some images of a 1692 printing of the 1685 Anonymous edition, the 1702 version does indeed look like a minor revision on the earlier version)
