About this Item

"Second edition" (but really third?) of commentary on the O.T. and N.T. by Willem Hessels van Est (Gulielmus Estius, 1542?1613), who studied classics at Utrecht and religion at Louvain, and was Chancellor at the University of Douai from 1595 until his death. Famous especially for exegetical writings, as herein, "Estius's reputation became so great among later scholars that the saying . . . 'Estius on the Epistles' became proverbial." (NCE) This edition was edited by Gaspard Dubois (Nemius, 1587?1667), whose dedication to Francis van der Burch, Archbishop of Cambrai, features his => engraved arms as a headpiece. First published in 1617, the text is in Latin printed in roman and italic, double-column, framed on each page by a double-ruled border, with elaborate woodcut initials and head- and tailpieces, many incorporating the Jesuit "IHS" and one of these => censored by an 18th-century hand. (Two large leaves are drawn in ink over objectionable putti parts!) The title-page, wanting in this copy, has been transcribed by the same(?) early hand in ink on the front fly-leaf recto and verso, and the imprint information is confirmed by the colophon on the last page, which features the woodcut printer's device and the date in roman numerals. Provenance: An inscription on the front fly-leaf verso gives three dates, 1682?1739, and the names Fido Springhere and Philippus Coisne(?); there is a second ex-libris inscription with the name Baptista Baelde(?) at top of dedication leaf; and a final inscription, "Fido Springhere 1686" on verso of last leaf, above colophon. Scarce: This edition => not in NUC Pre-1956, and WorldCat finds just three U.S. copies. Folio in 6's (36 cm, 14.2"). [3] ff. (of 4, lacking title-leaf), 684 pp., [10] ff. McCrank, 871. On Estius, see: NCE, V, 558. Contemporary calf with an elaborate cartouche gilt at the center of each cover, rebacked to style with gilt-ruled raised bands and green gilt-lettered spine label; extremities repaired and new endpapers. Ex-library: old oval stamp on first page of dedication and accession number on p. 1 of text. Lacks title-leaf; various markings on verso of front endpaper; final two quires lightly creased; small marginal hole from natural paper flaw on three leaves; a few spots and smudges and one small tear, also from natural flaw. With occasional => underlining and marginalia in Latin, seemingly by the same hand that transcribed the title and inscribed the fly-leaf. Bookseller Inventory # 31112
