About this Item

First U.S. edition of these devotional pieces, originally published in 1694 under the title Entretiens solitaires d'une ?me d?vote avec son dieu, here in an English translation accomplished by an anonymous American. A reviewer of a later edition concluded that the work represented "the aspect of devotional life favored by the evangelical school in the Episcopal church" (The Literary World, no. 220, p. 317). The original author's name appears in innumerable variations according to various transcribers' nationalities; Count Georg Wilhelm von Kniphausen (or Knyphausen) of Nienort (or Nienoort) was also known as George Willem (or Guillaume), Comte van Kniphausen, etc. 12mo (14.5 cm, 5.7"). 105, [1] pp. Shaw & Shoemaker 28892. Contemporary treed sheep, recently rebacked with complementary mottled calf, spine with gilt-stamped leather title-label; original leather showing expectable rubbing/cracking. Title-page with institutional pressure- and rubber-stamp; no other marks. One leaf with old burn damage (the ash from a pipe??) to lower inner portion, margins repaired, loss of a few letters without obscuring sense; one leaf with closed tear from outer margin and no loss; one leaf with a corner taken, just touching text without loss; upper corners dust-soiled, and pages generally age-toned, with no brittleness or other "issues.".
