Publisher Description

I have tried to follow as closely as possible the original, and to give the flavour of the text that Hobbes himself proof read, but the following differences were unavoidable. Hobbes used capitals and italics very extensively, for emphasis, for proper names, for quotations, and sometimes, it seems, just because. The original has very extensive margin notes, which are used to show where he introduces the definitions of words and concepts, to give in short the subject that a paragraph or section is dealing with, and to give references to his quotations, largely but not exclusively biblical.

Adheres to Original

Seems to be as close to the original text as possible using plain vanilla ASCII, which is especially important considering this text's eminent place stylistically, as well as in philosophy.

A definitely must-read treatise

This work by Hobbes explains every single aspect of mankind: from the nature of men to the cause of a common-wealth.
