Thomas Taylor's Proclus

The Fragments that Remain of the Lost Writings of Proclus, Surnamed The Platonic Successor, Translated from the Greek by Thomas Taylor (London: Printed for the Author, 1825).

 

Said to be one of only 250 copies printed, this copy is inscribed by Taylor himself to the Rev. W. J. Jolliffe, possibly this person.

 

I bought the book in Sussex, just 25 miles from where Jolliffe died in 1835, so it may not have moved much in the last two centuries or so.
