In Three Maine Partitions with their several Sections, Members, and Subsections. Philosophically, Medicinally, Historically, Opened and Cut Up) is a novel by Robert Burton, first published in 1621.
Burton's book is comprised mostly of a collection of opinions of a multitude of writers, grouped under quaint and old-fashioned divisions; in a solemn tone Burton endeavoured to prove indisputable facts by weighty quotations. The subjects talked about and determined by Burton ranged from the doctrines of religion to military discipline, from inland navigation to the morality of dancing-schools.
