About this Item

Sole edition of theological works by the => leader of the Remonstrants (who was also a personal friend of Descartes). Courcelles, a minister at Amiens, became chair of Arminian theology at the Remonstrant Seminary in Amsterdam after Episcopius, who founded the school in 1634. The famous Elzevir print shop published this volume edited by Philippus van Limborch (1633?1712), Courcelles' student and successor. The eulogy following Limborch's preface was written by Arnold Poelenberg (1628?66), another professor at the Seminary whose remarks are still considered the => most important source of information on Courcelles' life (1586?1659). The Latin text is printed in roman and italic with occasional Greek and decorated with handsome woodcut initials and tailpieces. The title-page, printed in red and black, features the printer's device of Daniel Elzevir, the Minerva. Provenance: Swirly red stamp (not a rubber-stamp) blazoning owner's initials in a complicated monogram within a wreath, title-page verso. Folio (31 cm, 12.2"). [18] ff., 1028, [34] pp. Willems 1506 ("Belle ?dition"); Goldsmid, I, 123. Contemporary full vellum with early ink title to spine, red speckled edges; leather scuffed and lightly soiled, upper joint starting. Ex-library: bookplate and old penciling on front pastedown. Waterstaining in outer margin of first eight leaves then intermittently, minor foxing on a few leaves only, occasional small ink blotches; tiniest touches of worming in bottom margin of 250 pages or so in middle of text and starting again at end, most noticeable on rear pastedown. Provenance mark as above. Bookseller Inventory # 30405
