Item Description: Kegan Paul, Trench, Trubner & Co. Ltd., 1905. LEATHER BOUND. Book Condition: Very Good. First Edition. B00CF6I6OY 1905 first / limited edition (500 copies), Kegan Paul, Trench, Trubner and Co., Ltd. (London), 7 1/4 x 8 7/8 inches tall green full grain leather bound, five raised bands and gilt lettering to spine, top page edges gilt, fore and bottom page edges untrimmed, gilt ruling to edges of boards, pastedowns bordered with gilt ruling and fleurons, green silk ribbon marker sewn in, printed on handmade paper, title page and initial letters and tailpieces (reproduced from French originals of the fifteenth century) printed in black and red ink, 224 pp. Slight rubbing and edgewear to covers, especially at tips, with very slight cracking along front hinge (but the binding is quite solid). A few pages with minor marginal age toning. One-eighth inch edge tear to the the fore edge of one leaf. A number of unopened signatures, as issued (preferred in this state by most collectors, but easily opened with a paper knife or carefully with a playing card). Otherwise, a very good copy - clean, bright and unmarked. A handsome volume, giving a splendid shelf appearance. An uncommon edition, one of 500 copies produced. ~KM2~ Though the translator isn't named, likely this is an edition translated by C. Kegan Paul, one of the publishers. 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 # KM2-0671-7581

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.

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. 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 other than the Bible which has been printed in so many editions and translations. Bookseller Inventory # KM3-0171-7092

Item Description: M. Gillyflower, R. Sare, T. Bennet, F. Saunders, & M. Wotton, 1698. LEATHER BOUND. Book Condition: Very Good. First Edition. B003N05FHW 1698 first Stanhope edition Printed by W[illiam] O[nley] for M. Gillyflower, R. Sare, T. Bennet, F. Saunders and M. Wotton (London), 4 7/8 x 7 3/4 inches tall full leather bound, gilt lettering to crimson leather label to spine, marbled endpapers, engraved frontispiece and full-page engraving preceding each of the four books signed by renowned Flemish engraver Michael van der Gucht (1660-1775), [12], 339, [3], 45, [1] pp., complete. Newly rebound. The plate preceding the third book has a bit of text offsetting to the lower margin. Very minor age toning to the paper in the last third of the volume. Otherwise, apart from a few minor instances of light marginal staining or very few instances of light foxing, a very good to near fine copy of the scarce first edition of this George Stanhope edition, which was reprinted over the ensuing years more than twenty times. In fact, Stanhope's was likely the most popular English edition of the Imitation of Christ throughout the eighteenth century and into the nineteenth. References: Wing (1996), T946; ESTC No. R9577. The English Short Title Catalog records only seven copies in North America, and American Book Prices Current shows no copies coming up for auction in the past 30+ years. ~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.

Item Description: Chez Claude Robustel, 1727. LEATHER BOUND. Book Condition: Very Good. First Edition. B071W5CD5J In French, and the Ordinary of the Mass (which precedes this translation of The Imitation of Christ) is in both French and Latin. 1727 Chez Claude Robustel (Paris), four 5 x 7 3/8 inches tall full leather bound volumes, ruled covers, elaborate gilt decorations and gilt-lettered burgundy leather labels to spines, all page edges red, marbled endpapers, [Vol. 1] liv, [2], 206; [Vol. 2] 207-352; [Vol. 3] 353-534; [Vol. 4] 535-677 pp. Includes a two-page catalogue of publisher Claude Robustel's work. Lacking the Pierre Giffart engravings mentioned in the listings of the two French libraries which hold the only institutional copies found by OCLC (Cat. No. 490232683) worldwide, but otherwise complete in all respects. Light to moderate rubbing and edgewear to the covers. A couple of pinhole size holes, impacting a couple of words in the Approbation at the rear of Volume 4. A few pages with slight, mostly marginal staining, and a few creased page tips. Otherwise, in very good condition - clean, bright and unmarked, of this extremely rare issue, which hasn't come up to an auction recorded by ABPC over the past several decades. A handsome set with a splendid shelf appearance. Reference: Augustin De Backer, Essai Bibliographique sur le Livre De Imitatione Christi, 876. ~LR1~A rare translation of this immortal devotional work derived from the French version first published in Paris in 1712 by French Jesuit theologian, ascetical writer and preacher Jerome de Gonnelieu (1640-1715), with relevant observations and prayers following each of the book's many chapters. Most scholars - and the two French libraries which hold copies (Bibliotheque nationale de France and Bibliotheque interuniversitaire Sainte-Genevieve) - credit Nancy, France printer John-Baptiste Cusson for the primary translation, saying Gonnelieu's prinicipal contribution was the observations following each chapter. The Imitation of Christ was first 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.
