About this Item

LIMITED TO 925 COPIES on Van Gelder paper. xli, 54p. Bibliography. Title and date in red on the title page. Decorative devices throughout, silk ribbon marker, and limitation on verso of title page. Stiff lapping cream colored wrappers printed in brown and with the title in an elaborate floral cartouche. Wrappers darkened but intact, title page red bright, silk ribbon there but detached from the top, else very good to fine with no internal markings. A finely printed edition by the legendary Thomas B. Mosher of Portland, Maine. Of debated authorship, these passionate letters were a European publishing sensation, in part because of their presumed authenticity as written by a nun, with five editions in the collection's first year, followed by more than forty editions throughout the 17th century.
