by Lützenburg, Dionysius von [Dionysius of Luxemburg]

Condition: Very good


Kaufbeuren: Christian Starck, 1742. Hardcover. Very good. [8],498,[5] pp. including index. In German. Contemporary mottled calf, raised bands, spine richly gilt, gilt leather labels, marbled endpapers, all edges red. Early 20th-century satanic bookplate of "Winkler Jenö." Calf worn at edges and rubbed, loss to lower corner of first rear endpaper. Very good.

Later edition, after the first of 1682. One of the last published examples of medieval-style prophecy, the work foretells the life, magical works, reign, and defeat of the Antichrist, with various revelations relating to signs of his coming and the end of the world, the murder and resurrection of Enoch and Elijah, and the Second Coming of Christ, as well as a section on the "Messiah of the Jews." The author, Dionysius von Lützenburg (i.e., Luxemburg, ca. 1652-1703), was a Capuchin friar known especially for this, his first work, and his hagiographical LEGEND DER HEILIGEN (1684). The present copy contains the very unusual bookplate of Jenö Winkler ("Winkler Jenö," in the Hungarian style), who is also evidently its artist, with his monogram in the print. The plate, printed in black and red, shows a suited devil plunging a skull-tipped sword through a large bleeding book. OCLC lists four copies, three in Germany, one at Brigham Young Univeristy. Rare.
