Thomae a Kempis, Canonici Regularis Ordinis S.: Kempis, Thomas a

Item Description: Jo. Antonii Remondini, 1730. PAPERBACK. Book Condition: Fair. B00NUDBX5K In Latin. 1730 Jo. Antonii Remondini (Bassano del Grappa, Italy), 2 1/8 x 4 inches tall in red and beige paper wraps, engraved frontispiece, engraved printer's device to title page, ll page edges yellow, 488, [14] pp. Staining and edgewear to frontispiece and title page. Old ink notation to verso of title page. Burn mark to fore edge of three leaves in 'Elogia,' preceding Book One. Old 1 x 1/4-inch paper repair to fore edge of last leaf of the 'Elogia,' with loss of a few letters in the text. 1 1/2-inch square paper glued over bottom of last page of the 'Oratio' section after the main text, with no apparent loss (probably placed to cover a prior owner's name). Dampstaining to index at the end of the volume. Otherwise, a very good copy - clean and unmarked - of this scarce 1730 edition. OCLC locates no copies online. ~KM5~ The Imitation of Christ was written by Catholic monk Thomas Kempis (circa 1380-1471), as four separate books completed between 1420 and 1427, at Mount Saint Agnes monastery, in the town of Windesheim, located in what is now the Netherlands. He wrote these works for the instruction of novices of his Augustinian monastic order, followers of Geert Groote's Brethren of the Common Life. But the writings quickly became popular among all the literate faithful. They were copied together in one manuscript as early as 1427, by Kempis, and copied (and later printed) together fairly consistently thereafter. Soon after hand-copied versions of the Imitatio Christi initially appeared, the printing press was invented, and it was among the first books after the Bible to be printed. There is probably no other book apart from the Bible which has been printed in so many editions and translations. In the past six hundred years, the work has been translated from Kempis' medieval Latin into nearly every language in the world. Bookseller Inventory # KM5-0941-1532

Item Description: Lelio dalla Volpe, 1725. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fair. First Edition. B00NQ42S52 In Italian. 1725 Lelio dalla Volpe (Bologna, Italy), 2 1/8 x 3 7/8 inches tall macro-miniature black hardbound, gilt design and lettering to spine, all page edges red, engraving of Christ to title page, engraved printer's devices, 501, [1] pp. The final, unnumbered page is an October 1724 Imprimatur (Roman Catholic Church approval) in Latin. Covers bumped to tips, rubbed and edgeworn. Paper shelf number label to spine and front pastedown. Partial cracking between pastedowns and free-endpapers, but the binding is quite solid. Old paper repair to title page, with most of the top 3/8-inch of the page lacking, effecting the first words of the title. Damage to pp. 213-216, with paper repairs and losses to text, especially on the lower portions of pp. 213-214. Otherwise, apart from being trimmed a bit close to the text block, and an occasional instance of light soiling, a good copy of this scarce pocket edition. OCLC (Nos. 561565363 and 771581141) locates only two copies worldwide, one at the British Library, St. Pancras, in London, and the other at the British National Bibliography Library in Wetherby, West Yorkshire. Reference: Augustin De Backer, Essai Bibliographique sur le Livre De Imitatione Christi, 1597. ~KM4~ An uncommon early eighteenth century Italian edition of the devotional classic, De Imitatione Christi ('The Imitation of Christ'), here attributed to Giovanni Gersen, reputed Abbot of Vercelli, Italy, who was said to have lived about 1230. Today, most scholars agree that the Imitation was written by - or at least compiled from numerous sources by - Flemish monk Thomas Kempis (circa 1380-1471). The claim of authorship by Gersen arose about 1606, when an undated manuscript attributing the De Imitatione to him was discovered in a convent at Arona near Milan which had at one time belonged to the Benedictines. Constantino Cajetan (1560-1650), a Benedictine scholar, took up the abbot's claim in two published works, prompting Jesuit scholar Heribert Rosweyde (1569-1629) to respond with a book in defense of Kempis' authorship. Though a monument was dedicated to Gersen at Vercelli in 1884, by then the weight of scholarly evidence had accumulated against even the existence of the abbot, let alone his authorship of De Imitatione. The weight of evidence today suggests that the Imitation was written by Kempis as four separate books completed between 1420 and 1427, at Mount Saint Agnes monastery, in the town of Windesheim, located in what is now the Netherlands, for the instruction of novices of his Augustinian monastic order, followers of Geert Groote's Brethren of the Common Life. But the writings quickly became popular among all the literate faithful. There is probably no other book apart from the Bible which has been printed in so many editions and translations.

B00KTB53HU In Latin. 1728 first edition Apud Franciscum Metternich (Coloniae Agrippinae - Cologne, Germany), 4 x 6 7/8 inches tall hardbound, marbled paper-covered boards over leather spine, [16], 992, [40], 16 pp. Covers rubbed, bumped and edgeworn, cracked along the fore edge, with the spine leather chipped, flaking and split down the middle. Lacking blank endpapers, but otherwise complete. Title page chipped and ink marked, not affecting text. Contents are age toned and foxed, but the paper is still supple and all is quite legible. Nicely enclosed and protected in an acid-free, lignin-free Brodart rare book box, with the title page to the front and title to the spine for easy identification. Scarce. 'Ordo exercitiorum spiritualium octiduanorum' (16 pp.) at the end. ~KMP~ An important collection of works, edited by German Jesuit scholar Franz Kappenstein, about and drawn from The Imitation of Christ and other significant works by Thomas a Kempis. The Imitation of Christ was written (or at a minimum, transcribed) by Catholic monk Thomas Kempis (circa 1380-1471), as four separate books completed between 1420 and 1427, at Mount Saint Agnes monastery, in the town of Windesheim, located in what is now the Netherlands.

Item Description: Printed by R. and W. Dean, for T. Haydock, 1800. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fair. First Edition. B01MTEH7LL 1800 first edition thus, Printed by R. and W. Dean, for T. Haydock (Manchester, England), 3 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches tall embossed blue full leather bound, gilt ruling to front and rear covers and elaborate gilt decoration and lettering to spine, all page edges gilt, brown endpapers, engraved title page, vi, 207, [3] pp. Oddly lacking the last four pages of the table of contents at the rear of the volume, but is an otherwise complete copy, including front and rear blank endpapers. Prior owner initials ('H.F.') in gilt to front cover. Moderate to heavy rubbing and edgewear to covers, especially at tips and along exterior hinges. Mild staining to title page. Otherwise, a very good copy of this scarce Manchester edition of the translation of English Roman Catholic Bishop Richard Challoner (1691-1781). The British Library (English Short Title Catalog No. T93924) only locates three copies at institutions worldwide - at the British Library, at the National Library of Wales and at Harvard University. ~KM3~ Richard Challoner was an English Roman Catholic bishop, and a leading figure of English Catholicism during the greater part of the 18th century. He is perhaps most famous for his revision of the Douay Rheims translation of the Bible. Challoner's goal in his translations was to make the classics of Catholic Spirituality accessible to Catholics, in English. To this end he translated this work, 'De Imitatione Christi' (the Imitation, or Following, of Christ) in 1737. The Imitation of Christ was written (or at a minimum, transcribed) by Catholic monk Thomas Kempis (circa 1380-1471), as four separate books completed between 1420 and 1427, at Mount Saint Agnes monastery, in the town of Windesheim, located in what is now the Netherlands. He wrote these works for the instruction of novices of his Augustinian monastic order, followers of Geert Groote's Brethren of the Common Life. But the writings quickly became popular among all the literate faithful. They were copied together in one manuscript as early as 1427, by Kempis, and copied (and later printed) together fairly consistently thereafter.

Wotton at the Three Daggers in Fleet-Street, 1699. 12mo., Second Edition, on laid paper, with an engraved frontispiece, neat eighteenth signature on title, some moderate age-staining throughout; most attractively bound in eighteenth century full calf; sides with double frame border in gilt enclosing a floral frame border stopped at corners with a decorative spray, back with five raised bands, all compartments richly framed and tooled in gilt, doublures tooled in blind, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers, very neatly rebacked with old backstrip laid down, corners bruised, a very good, tight copy in a pretty and sympathetically restored period binding. With two nineteenth century inscriptions recording circumstances of ownership on blank preliminary. The engraved frontispiece of the Crucifixion is by Van der Gucht. Stanhope's translation of Kempis's spiritual classic first appeared in the previous year. In this paraphrastic rendering the pithy style of the original is presented as flowing sentences more in tune with eighteenth century taste. The edition was continually reprinted during the next 150 years, and in 1886 Henry Morley edited it for Lubbock's 'One Hundred Books'. The first three editions are very scarce, especially in contemporary or period bindings. Bookseller Inventory # 14726

Lacking blank front and rear endpapers, but an otherwise complete copy of this scarce edition. Eighteenth century prior owner name to label affixed to front pastedown, which is also stained and has light pencil notations.

Rare; ESTC only locates five copies worldwide - at Aberdeen University, the British Library, Glasgow University, National Library of Scotland and a private collection. ~KM3~ The first of two volumes Mosman and Brown published of select works of Thomas a Kempis (with the second volume containing Kempis' Valley of Lilies and Soliloquy of the Soul). According to the English Short Title Catalog (No. T92394), this version of The Imitation was edited by English academic John Worthington (1618-1671) from the translation of 'F.B.,' the nom de plume of Jesuit Anthony Hoskins (1568-1615), who in turn based his more modern English translation on that of Welsh Catholic priest Richard Whitford (sometimes given as Whytford, d. circa 1542), writing in late middle English.

(London), 5 x 7 7/8 inches tall hardbound, leather spine over brown cloth boards, five raised bands and gilt lettering and design to spine, refreshed endpapers, frontispiece and four other magnificent full-page engravings (one preceding each of the four books) by renowned Flemish engraver Michael van der Gucht (1660-1725), [12], 339, [3], 45, [1] pp. Moderate rubbing and edgewear to boards, with slight bumping to tips. Gilt lettering at bottom of spine incorrectly reads 1710 rather than 1711. Moderate foxing to blank prelims, and very light foxing and contemporary prior owner name to title page. Contemporary prior owner name to bottom margin of last page of text. Otherwise, a very good copy - clean, bright and unmarked - of this scarce seventh edition of the important Stanhope translation of the beloved spiritual classic, The Imitation of Christ, or The Christian's Pattern. The English Short Title Catalog (No. 006334267) locates only 14 copies of this imprint at institutions worldwide, six of these at Oxford University, three at the British Library, one at the National Library of Scotland and four at American universities. ~KM2~ George Stanhope (1660-1728) was a clergyman of the Church of England, rising to be Dean of Canterbury and a Royal Chaplain, and a leading figure in church politics of the early 18th century. Despite the popularity of this translation of the Imitation, as well as prior translations or adaptations of Epictetus, Charron's 'Books on Wisdom' and and Meditations by Marcus Aurelius, Stanhope's style has been criticized as overly paraphrastic, using 'flowing sentences that pleased the reader in Queen Anne's reign.' The Imitation of Christ was written by Catholic monk Thomas Kempis (circa 1380-1471), as four separate books completed between 1420 and 1427, at Mount Saint Agnes monastery, in the town of Windesheim, located in what is now the Netherlands. He wrote these works for the instruction of novices of his Augustinian monastic order, followers of Geert Groote's Brethren of the Common Life. But the writings quickly became popular among all the literate faithful. There is probably no other book apart from the Bible which has been printed in so many editions and translations.

Thomae a Kempis Canonici Regularis Ordin. S.: Kempis, Thomas a

Item Description: Apud Corn. ab Egmond., 1644. LEATHER BOUND. Book Condition: Good. B00NCESSQ4 In Latin. 1644 Apud Corn. ab Egmond. (Cologne, Germany), 2 1/4 x 3 5/8 inches tall x 1 1/4 inches thick, near-miniature, full period vellum binding, all page edges red, engraved title page with full-page engraving of Kempis on verso, [32], 534, [9] pp., complete. The vellum binding is characteristically grubby, edgeworn and chipped, especially lower backstrip. Lower band is broken, but the binding is quite solid. 1/2-inch closed tear to bottom of front pastedown. Eighteenth century prior owner names, one inked out, to front free-endpaper. Title page/frontispiece leaf is only attached to the text block at the upper half of the hinge, and is lacking a 1 3/8-inch diagonal chip to lower tip, which clips the lower edge of the title page engraving but does not interfere with the frontispiece overleaf. Very light soiling to the lower margin of most pages in the first half of the book. Light staining to fore margin of last dozen or so pages of the book, and the last printed page - the last page of the end table of contents - was crumpled to the fore-margin, with creasing to the right side of the page. Lacks blank rear free-endpaper, but is otherwise complete. Otherwise, apart from a small occasional instance of soiling or faint foxing, a very good copy of a scarce seventeenth century edition of the Imitation, among the first editions edited by Jacob Merlo Horstius and printed during his lifetime (he died the year this edition appeared). OCLC (No. 460738049, 247273204, 561539785) records only 5 copies worldwide, none in North America - two in France, at the Bibliotheque Nationale de France (BnF) and the Bibliotheque Sainte-Genevieve in Paris; two in Germany, in Schwerin and Wolfenbuttel; and one at the British Library. ~KM4~ Jacob Merlo Horstius (1597-1644), born in Horst, Holland, from whence he derives his name, was a prominent doctor of theology known as an effective preacher at the Lyskirchen in Cologne, where he served as pastor. In addition to this influential edit of De Imitatione Christi - and most of a Kempis' works, with commentary - Horstius authored and edited numerous books, including a highly respected commentary of Estius on the Pauline Letters, the works of St. Bernard and an often translated and reprinted collection of prayers for the Catholic faithful, Paradisus Animae Christianae ('Paradise of the Christian Soul'). De Imitatione was written by Catholic monk Thomas Kempis (circa 1380-1471), as four separate books completed between 1420 and 1427, at Mount Saint Agnes monastery, in the town of Windesheim, located in what is now the Netherlands. He wrote these works for the instruction of novices of his Augustinian monastic order, followers of Geert Groote's Brethren of the Common Life. But the writings quickly became popular among all the literate faithful. There is probably no other book apart from the Bible which has been printed in so many editions and translations.
