DREXEL, JEREMIAS. Gymnasium patientiae. Colonia Agrippinae [i.e., Cologne, but actually Amsterdam]: Apud Cornelium ab Egmond [i.e., Blaeu], 1632. 16mo. , 376,  p.; Engraved plates. Contemporary vellum with yapp edges. Spine moderately soiled, else a very good copy. Jesuit father Jeremias Drexel here presents three lengthy meditation on Christian patience, and on the spiritual benefits of accepting suffering. Each is preceded by an engraving presenting (1) the choice between a worldly crown and the crown of thorns; (2) the rewards of those who accept the crown of thorns; and (3) Jesus on the cross, and an angel beside him holding a flowering crown of thorns. The engraved title-page capitulates the theme of the two crowns. Cornelius ab Egmond was a pseudonym used by Blaeu in Amsterdam. DeBacker-Sommervogel III, coll. 193-194, no. 12.
