Thomas Stanley (1625-1678) was a poet and classical scholar. Stanley is said to have been so into his work that he completely ignored his family and new wife. History of Philosophy was first published in three volumes appearing in 1655, 1656, and 1660.  Volume 1 concerned Thales, Solon, and Socrates, volume 2 focused on Plato and Aristotle, and volume 3 finished with Pythagoras and Pre-Socratics. The work details the lives and beliefs of several philosophers chronologically. History of Philosophy was published as a single volume for the first time in 1687.  This is the edition we have at special collections. 
I love the portraits in this book.  To me they look like stills from a toga fashion show or department catalog.  Fur hats and skull accessories are all the rage this fall! Don’t forget your philosopher’s beard (ahem! Pittacus and Aristotle!)
