BIBLIOGRAPHY

The best general treatment is that of J. B. Bury in The
Idea of Progress
(London 1920; New York, 1932). The
Renaissance background is exhaustively presented by José
Antonio Maravall in Antiguos y Modernos. La idea del
progresso en el desarrollo inicial de una sociedad
(Madrid,
1966). The French aspect is treated by H. Rigault in Histoire
de la querelle des modernes
(Paris, 1856), which is supple-
mented by A. Lombard, La Querelle des anciens et des
modernes. l'abbé Dubos
(Neuchâtel, 1908). The German
phase is presented by E. M. Butler in The Tyranny of Greece
over Germany
(New York, 1935), and the English by R. F.
Jones in Ancients and Moderns. A Study of the Rise of the
Scientific Movement in Seventeenth-Century England,
2nd
ed. (St. Louis, 1961).

The three most valuable scholarly editions of relevant
works are J. Swift, A Tale of a Tub, The Battle of the Books..., ed. A. C. Guthkelch and D. Nichol Smith (Oxford,
1920); Bernard le Bovier de Fontenelle, Entretiens sur la
pluralité des mondes
and Digression sur les anciens et les
modernes,
ed. Robert Shackleton (Oxford, 1955), and
F. M. A. de Voltaire, La Henriade, ed. Owen R. Taylor
(Geneva, 1965).

Most of the above works contain extensive bibliographies.
The edition of La Henriade is especially valuable for the
literary phase of the debate.
