About this Item

Vol. I only of the English translation of Crasset's Histoire de l'eglise de Japon, originally published in 1689; the second volume of the translation was not published for several more years, appearing in 1707. Crasset, a Jesuit preacher, made much use of Father Solier's work on the subject, Histoire eccl?siastique des isles et royaumes du Japon, expanding its chronology with his own account of the years from 1624 to 1658. Also included is => a section describing different aspects of secular Japanese life, including diet, housing, and relationships, among other topics. Provenance: "Ad Cubiculum Sacerdotis Soc. Jesu Hooton" inscribed on title-page in ink; later in the library of the Pacific School of Religion (properly released). 4to (21.6 cm; 8.5"). [28], 544, [8] pp. ESTC T94112; later edition in Cordier, Bibliotheca japonica, col. 425?26; DeBacker-Sommervogel, II, 1641. Contemporary Cambridge-style calf, rebacked some time ago with raised bands double-ruled in gilt, two gilt-lettered leather spine labels, and new endpapers; rubbed, especially spine, with a few abrasions. Ex-library as above: evidence of former call number label on spine, bookplate on front pastedown, rubber-stamp on endpaper and title-page, accession pencilling on title-page verso, circulation materials at back. Light pencilling on endpapers, one lower outside corner a tremoin, one leaf repaired, two with small holes and loss of a letter or two, one with a medium tear lightly touching text; light to moderate spotting and age-toning. Not pristine and priced accordingly ? yet, a good book. Bookseller Inventory # 36729
