A few pages with very slight creasing. Otherwise, a very good copy - clean, bright and unmarked - of a scarce and desirable parallel Latin-English edition of the devotional classic, The Imitation of Christ (sometimes rendered, as here, as 'The Following of Christ'). OCLC (Nos. 810946253 and 792881482) locates only four copies at institutions worldwide - one each at the British Library St. Pancras (London), University of Oxford, University of Birmingham and Trinity College (Dublin). ~KM3~ The Latin text of the Four Books of 'De Imitatione Christi' which is here printed, according to the end notes in this little volume, 'is that of the autograph of Thomas a Kempis himself, now preserved at the Royal Library in Brussels. . These treatises . were printed by Michael Josef Pohl as the second volume of his collected edition of the writings of Thomas a Kempis, published in seven volumes by Herder at Freiburg-im-Breisgau, 1902-1922. Pohl's text, which was transcribed and printed with very great care and accuracy, has been used in this volume with the consent of Mr. Herder and of Frau Pohl. In printing his text Pohl brought the mediaeval spelling of the original Latin into conformity with modern use, and expanded the contractions. In all other respects he has carefully preserved the author's own words, even when the grammar is at fault.' The English translation, also according to the end notes, 'was based originally upon the earliest English translation as edited by Dr. J.K. Ingram from the manuscript at Trinity College, Dublin, for the Early English Text Society in 1893' and recast by the unnamed editor based on several English versions, especially that first published by the Jesuit Father Anthony Hoskins under the initials 'B.F.' in 1613. 'Besides being reprinted many times in the seventeenth century the translation by Hoskins served as a basis for most of the English versions which have come since, right down to our own day, although the indebtedness has not generally been recognized. . The influence of Hoskins's translation may also be traced in the well-known and favourite translation by Bishop Challoner, first published in 1737, and in the New Translation, first published by Burns and Lambert in 1851, and many times reprinted since.' Scarce. OCLC only locates two copies - one at University of Oxford and one at Dublin's Trinity College. Bookseller Inventory # KM3-1161-6734

Item Description: Belgium Tournai, 1874. Full Brown Morocco. Book Condition: Fine. 1st Thus. a very fine copy in period full embossed brown morocco, gilt, all edges, with gilt royal endsheets and dentils, finely printed in Belgium. in 12mo format. IN the original Latin with a text about the life of Saint Thomas, de Vita. Thomas a Kempis (circa 1380-1471) is now nearly universally acknowledged as the true author, or at least as the first editor and copyist, of this immensely popular devotional work. Kempis spent most of his long life at Mount Saint Agnes monastery, in the town of Windesheim, located in what is now the Netherlands. He wrote De Imitatione Christi and numerous other devotional works for the instruction of the novices in his monastic order, Geert Groote's Brethren of the Common Life, but over the years they became popular among the faithful worldwide. Soon after Kempis' hand-copied versions of De Imitatione 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. Publisher/bookseller Jean Petit I. (fl. 1492-1530) dominated the book trade in Paris, and became the official printer of its University. It has been estimated that he was responsible for financing over 1000 publications. He was succeeded by Jean Petit II (presumably his son), who was active from 1525-1543. Size: 12mo. By the Binder. Private Press. Bookseller Inventory # 1000764

Item Description: The Edwin Mellen Press, Lampeter, 2002. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. First Edition. Studies in the History of Missions Volume 22. Very good hardback copy, slight wear to corners. iii, 147pp. "While a fair number of past studies, both historical and bibliographical, have outlined in general the workings of the Jesuit mission press in Japan, a comprehensive account of the linguistic and religious strategies that informed the missionaries' efforts has yet to be produced. Rev. Farge's book takes a major step in this direction by focusing on an important, yet largely unexplored, area of inquiry - namely, the multiple contexts, cultural, linguistic, religious, and psychological, within which a number of Christian classics were not only linguistically but also culturally translated into Japanese. To my knowledge, this is the only in-depth literary study in the English language of Japanese Christian texts from this period. Rev. Farge's book thus represents a pioneering effort and will hopefully not only aid scholars in their study of these specific editions from the Jesuit mission press but also encourage them to explore other Christian literary treasures produced in late sixteenth-century Japan." - Archivum Historicum 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

Covers rubbed, stained and edgeworn, with fraying at tips. Minor staining to pastedowns and blank endpapers. Old ink number to front free-endpaper. Very minor soiling to title page. Otherwise, apart from occasional light soiling or very slight foxing, a very good copy of this scarce Venetian edition. OCLC (Nos. 561540824, 797570376) locates only four copies worldwide - two at the British Library, and two in Italy (Trento and Rovereto). Reference: Augustin De Backer, Essai Bibliographique sur le Livre De Imitatione Christi, 356. 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. Bookseller Inventory # KM4-1041-1665

Eighteenth century inscriptions to front free-endpaper. Prior owner name to fore margin of title page. Age toning and a bit of foxing throughout. A couple of pages with slight creasing to tips. Otherwise, a very good copy - clean and unmarked - of this scarce edition of a devotional classic. OCLC (792881443, 490243612, 79711319, 561540768 and 782173400) locates only nine copies worldwide - five in the Netherlands (Tilburg, Nijmegen, Utrecht, Groningen and the Hague), two at the British Library, one at Bibliotheque Sainte-Genevieve in Paris and one at Harvard. Reference: Augustin De Backer, Essai Bibliographique sur le Livre De Imitatione Christi, 340. This edition is 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. (Note that some, but not most, scholars, credit Nancy, France printer John-Baptiste Cusson for the primary translation, saying Gonnelieu's primary contribution was the observations following each chapter). The bibliography indicates the French Gonnelieu edition was then translated into German by theologian Heinrich Colendal (1672-1729), but the Jesuit responsible for translating from German to Latin is unknown. 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. He wrote these works for the instruction of novices of his Augustinian monastic order, followers of Geert Groote's Brethren of the Common Life.

Item Description: Antveriae Ex Officina Plantiniuvm Apud Balthasem & Ionnem Moretos, 1617. FIRST ROSWEYDE EDITION. 12mo, 139 x 82 mms., pp. [xxiv], 516 [517 - 518 Approbation and Privilege], engraved vignette on title-page, full-page engraving, by Hieronymus Wierex, opposite first page of text, contemporary calf; spine a little creased, lower rear joint worn , slight general wear to binding, but a very good copy. This is the first edition of the text as prepared by Heribertus Rosweyde (1529 - 1629), following that prepared by Henri Sommalius (1599) and the Codex Kempensis of 1441. Rosweyde, a Jesuit from 1588, taught philosophy at the Jesuit College at Douai, but he seems to have been happiest poring over old books in libraries, looking for lost texts, collecting data about the saints, etc. He was one of the early Bollandists, if not the first of, a group of scholars originally consisting of Jesuits, but now including non-Jesuits, who were hagiographers with interests in Christianity's saints. The idea of the Acta Sanctorum is attributed to him. WorldCat locates copies in three Paris libraries, but none in North American libraries; there is a copy in the Boston College Library.

Item Description: Kl.-8vo (120 x 90 mm). [118] Bl. (von 120, ohne die beiden leeren Bl.). [Kollation: A2-7 (A1 unbedruckt fehlt, A2-A5 Index, A6 leer, A7-A8 Vorwort), a-o8 (a1recto Text, o7recto Kolophon, O8 unbedruckt fehlt)]. 25 Zeilen. Pergamentband des 18. Jhs. Brescia, Jacobus Britannicus (Giacomo und Angelo Britannico), 6. Juni 1485. Seltene, insgesamt die siebte, Inkunabel-Ausgabe von Kempis' 'De Imitatione Christi', einer der grossen Klassiker westlicher Spiritualität und einer der populärsten und meistgedruckten christlichen Texte mit über hundert Uebersetzungen. Bestehend aus vier Teilen, formulieren die beiden ersten Bücher Regeln zum geistlichen Leben, die auf dem Weg zum Reich Gottes Anleitung sein wollen. Im dritten Abschnitt steht die Gnade Gottes als Quelle für Trost und Erfüllung im Zentrum. Durch Selbstverleugnung soll der Mensch zur Freiheit geführt werden. Im Schlussteil wird dem Dialog zwischen Mensch und Gott die Dimension der Eucharistie und Kommunion hinzugefügt. "Vor dem Hintergrund einer zur 'Kopfreligion' gewordenen theologischen Scholastik und ausufernder mystischer Visionen rief Kempis' Werk Bewunderung hervor und zog viele Menschen mit seiner 'neuen Frömmigkeit' an" (Eckert/Herms). Zehn Jahre nach der Editio princeps, die Günther Zainer 1472 in Augsburge verlegte, erschienen zwischen 1482 und 1485 sieben weitere Druckausgaben in: Metz, Barcelona, Venedig (2), Löwen (2) und Brescia. Letztere ist "of unusual interest. It was published by Jacobus Britannicus (Giacomo Britannico) at Brescia, on June 6th, 1485. It begins with the usual table of contents. This is followed by a unique prefatory devout address or sermon, and then follows the following curious statement, which proves that the controversy as to the authorship was already acute in the late 15th century: 'Incipit opus Beati Bernardi saluberrimum de imitatione Christi: et contemptu mundi: quod Johanni Gerson cancellario Parisiensi attribuitur'. This is apparently printed from the same manuscript as the Venice edition of the same year" (Jean de Montmerency, Thomas à Kempis. His Age and Book (1906), S. 123f.). Die Frage der Autorschaft konnte nie restlos geklärt werden und neben dem Namen des Augustiner Predigers und Schriftstellers Thomas von Kempen am Niederrhein wurden u.a. auch die von Jean Gerson (1363-1429), dem Kanzler der Universität von Paris, und vom hl. St. Bernhard von Clairvaux (1090-1153) genannt. Im 16. Jahrhundert wurde auch noch der des spätmittelalterlichen Erbauungsschriftstellers Ludolf von Sachsen (der Karthäuser) ins Feld geführt. Die lombardische Kleinstadt Brescia zählte durch die 1472 von Tommaso Ferrando gegründete erste Druckerei der Stadt zu den fünf führenden Buchdruckzentren Italiens im 15. Jahrhundert, zusammen mit Venedig, Florenz, Rom und Mailand. Nachdem die beiden in Brescia geborenen Brüder Giacomo und Angelo Britannico aus Venedig, wo sie seit 1481 gedruckt hatten, heim gekehrte waren, monopolisierten sie praktisch den heimischen Markt mit ihren Drucken. Ihre Bücher waren vornehmlich kleinformatig, günstig im Preis und - anders als im vorliegenden Werk - mehrheitlich in Fraktur gedruckt. Von den fünfzehn von ihnen benutzten Drucktypen waren allein elf in Fraktur und nur eine in Antiqua, die restlichen waren zwei griechische Typen und eine für den Musikdruck, mit dem die Presse grossen Erfolg verzeichnete. Von den sechzehn in Italien gedruckten musiktheoretischen Inkunabeln stammen vier aus Brescia. - Im Innensteg der zweiten Hälfte des Kodex leichter Braunfleck, winzige Feuchtigkeitsflecken auf den letzten vier Blatt; ein sehr schönes Exemplar im Schweinsledereinband des 18. Jahrhunderts dieser Rarität. Mit montiertem Bücherzeichen im Spiegel: "Est S. Bartholomaei de Asta usui D. Bruni Solaro".
