Robert Burton (1577-1640). "Robert Burton went up to Oxford in 1593 and in 1599 was elected to a studentship at Christ Church where he lived for the rest of his life... his masterpiece was The Anatomy of Melancholy, first published in quarto in 1621 and reprinted in folio in 1624, 1628, 1632, 1651, 1652, 1660 and 1676... the sixth [edition] was printed posthumously from a copy containing his last corrections.... Burton had read much, and all that he had read, or nearly all, was refined and incorporated in the Anatomy... The Anatomy, as its publishing history shows, was one of the most popular books of the seventeenth century. All the learning of the age as well as its humour--and its pedantry--are there. It has something common with Brant's 'Ship of Fools (37), Erasmus's "Praise of Folly" (43), and More's Utopia (47), with Rabelais and Montaigne (95), and like all these it exercised a considerable influence on the thought of the time. Dr. Johnson deeply admired it, and Charles Lamb's often and strongly expressed devotion, served to rescue the Anatomy from a brief period of oblivion; its admirers will continue to read and re-read it."--John Carter & Percy H. Muir, eds.: Printing and the Mind of Man, #120, p.73.
