Manipulus spicarum ex libris domesticis Societatis Iesu ad perfectionem spectantibus collectus in usum sociorum peregrinantium

by JESUIT MEDITATIONS


Munich: Typis Nicolai Henrici, sumptibus Ioannis Wagner. 1653. Contemporay vellum over boards with leather spine label 24mo (10 x 6 cm) . Miniature, pocket edition (only edition?) of this collection of texts relating to the perfection of the Society of Jesus, excerpted from the writings of various notable Jesuits starting from Francis Xavier, for domestic pilgrims and compiled for the use of members of the Society. The anonymous compiler has included a preface ("Ad Socium Peregre Commorantem Collector"). The text is divided up by the twelve months of the year with specific texts for members of the society to meditate on. The tiny volume (ca. 4 by 2 & 1/2 inches) is very rare being only the second copy recorded. The OCLC and KVK locate only electronic copies in German libraries taken from the only example recorded at Regensburg which is a very browned and soiled example unlike the present copy which is a very fine, fresh copy [6], 207, 930 pp. (last page blank). Fine copy. § BVB cat. no. BV013680897 (not yet assigned a VD number?)
