Some light rubbing, some cracking along lower portion of upper joint and lower panel of spine, some light browning of text, later ownership signature on endpaper, else a very good copy in a brown cloth open-end box. Second American edition. 12mo. Second American edition, following the very rare Saur edition of 1749 but the first American edition of Payne's translation. Apparently an earlier edition had been planned in 1667 or 1669 at Cambridge by Samuel Green but the Massachusetts Courts suppressed it. In 1749 Sauer printed it as "The Christian Pattern." Curiously, the DNB dates the first edition of Payne's edition as 1785. Includes "The Ingenious and Pious Author of The Amaranth, a Collection of Religious Poems, printed 1767, gives the following Account of Thomas à Kempis" preceding the text. This was first translated into English by William Atkinson and published by Margaret, Duchess of Beaufort in 1503.

Thomas à Kempis

Stanford (Duchess County, N.Y.): Printed by Daniel Lawrence, for Henry & John F, Hull, 1803. xlii, 210pp. 1 vols. 12mo. Contemporary sheep, red leather spine label. Very pretty copy. xlii, 210pp. 1 vols. 12mo. "It has been the most widely read devotional manual apart from the Bible, perhaps even surpassing the influence of such books as 'Pilgrim's Progress' and St. Augustine's 'Confessiones.' " Much of this appeal has been attributed to "the great simplicity of its style and its freedom from intellectualism or theological dogmatism." (PMM). It was first printed in America in 1749.

Thomas A Kempis

London, New York: Seeley & Co./E. P. Dutton & Co., 1908. Hardcover. Good+/No Jacket. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. This copy is clean, tight and square.

The full leather binding is lightly rubbed at the edges with a small chip at the top of the spine and a small scuff at the top of the rear board. The leather bands which were designed to seal the book closed are mostly missing. The outer leather is marvelously aged. There are raised bands on the spine with a blind stamped title. There is, stamped on the front, a scene that mimics an illuminated drawing. There is an illuminated, full color frontispiece and each of the four books starts with a similarly illuminated title page. The top page edge is red, the other page edges are deckled and are lightly rubbed and toned. Internally there is little toning, mainly on the edges of the end papers. It has 309 pages.
