The Saint Called Good / The Life of Saint Anne / Saint Anne's Pilgrim People. (3 books)

By Lefebvre CSsR., Eugene.

Beaupre, Quebec.: Shrine of Ste. Anne de Beaupre.. Good with no dust jacket. (1951). Hardcover. 12mo - 18.5 x 12.5 cm.; "The Saint called Good", 51 pages 1951. Burgundy cloth over boards with gilt lettering on spine. A comprehensive book about Saint Anne published by the Basilica of Saint Anne in Beaupré, Québec. There are black and white reproductions of pictures of St. Anne, prayers, stories of healed people, a history of devotion to her, the Solemn Novena, hymns to St. Anne. As someone who is fascinated by the saints, I found this little book to be a wonderful collection of information about a saint who is prominent in our Church but about whom so little is known historically. The stories of the cures are inspirational. The library markings are the usual aong with a blacked out previous owner's name on the front free end paper. Sticker ghost and a white accession number on the lower spine. Very mild wear to the externals, in fact the book appears as though it has been used very little if at all. The second book "The Life of Saint Anne"; 1975, 80 pp. Full colour paper over boards. Illustrated with many black and white photographs and reproductions. A biography of St. Anne. Slight browning of the spine, otherwise clean and tight. The third book "Saint Anne's Pilgrim People" (1975), 132 pages is bound with full coliuyr paper over boards and is very well ilustrated. The first and third books are ex-library with the usual markings though all neatly done. All three books are included. .

In the former, Evelyn Underhill discusses the relation of Mysticism to Vitalism, Psychology, Theology, Symbolism, and Magic. In the latter, entitled 'The Mystic Way', she discusses the inner process of the mystic experience; awakening, purification, the training of the Self in its ascent to the Unitive Life." One appendix of 21 pages, "A Historical sketch of European mysticism from the beginning of the Christian era to the death of Blake", a 30 page bibliography, a 3 page bibliographical note to the thirteenth edition, and lastly an 11 page index. This book has traditionally served as an introduction to the world of the mystic to those unfamiliar with the territory. Two marginal "squiggles" on pages 10 and 11, otherwise the interior is clean and the binding is sound. The externals show very minor shelf wear. .
