James Phillips and Son. LEATHER BOUND. B01N287KKO 1797 fourth edition, James Phillips and Son (London), 5 x 7 7/8 inches tall full leather bound, four raised bands and gilt lettering to spine, marbled endpapers, fore and bottom page edges untrimmed, xxxix, 334 pp. plus publisher's ads. Very slight rubbing and edgewear to covers. Prior owner handwritten and stamped name to top margin of title page. Otherwise, apart from a few pages with slight creasing or minor foxing, a very good copy - clean, bright and unmarked - of this scarce early edition. References: Smith, J., Friends? books, 2.274; ESTC No. T93314. The English Short Title Catalog locates only 14 copies at institutions worldwide - 10 in Britain, and four in the United States (Yale, Harvard, UC Berkeley and Haverford College). ~KM3~ The fourth edition of the much-reprinted John Payne English translation of The Imitation of Christ (De Imitatione Christi in its original Latin). In the first paragraph of the 39-page translator's preface, Payne explains that he hoped to do 'some justice to the sense of the Original; which is almost lost in the loose paraphrase of Dean Stanhope [referring to Anglican George Stanhope's often reprinted 1698 English translation], and almost deprived of its spirit by the literal and inelegant exactness of others. Payne's translation uses the King James Version wording for scriptural quotations within the work, rather than the Vulgate edition of the Bible available to a Kempis in the fifteenth century. And Payne has edited out much from the original which he found overly 'monkish' or 'popish,' including substituting for the original Book 4 - dealing with the Roman Catholic Mass - a work which Payne here calls 'The Book of the Sacrament.' About the original author: The Imitation of Christ was written by Catholic monk Thomas a Kempis (circa 1380-1471), as four separate books completed between 1420 and 1427, at Mount Saint Agnes monastery, in the town of Windesheim, located in what is now the Netherlands. He wrote these works for the instruction of novices of his Augustinian monastic order, followers of Geert Groote's Brethren of the Common Life. But the writings quickly became popular among all the literate faithful. There is probably no other book apart from the Bible which has been printed in so many editions and translations. . Very Good. 1797. Fourth Edition.

Kegan Paul, Trench, Trubner & Co. Ltd.. LEATHER BOUND. B00CF6I6OY 1905 first / limited edition (500 copies), Kegan Paul, Trench, Trubner and Co., Ltd. (London), 7 1/4 x 8 7/8 inches tall green full grain leather bound, five raised bands and gilt lettering to spine, top page edges gilt, fore and bottom page edges untrimmed, gilt ruling to edges of boards, pastedowns bordered with gilt ruling and fleurons, green silk ribbon marker sewn in, printed on handmade paper, title page and initial letters and tailpieces (reproduced from French originals of the fifteenth century) printed in black and red ink, 224 pp. Slight rubbing and edgewear to covers, especially at tips, with very slight cracking along front hinge (but the binding is quite solid). A few pages with minor marginal age toning. One-eighth inch edge tear to the the fore edge of one leaf. A number of unopened signatures, as issued (preferred in this state by most collectors, but easily opened with a paper knife or carefully with a playing card). Otherwise, a very good copy - clean, bright and unmarked. A handsome volume, giving a splendid shelf appearance. An uncommon edition, one of 500 copies produced. ~KM2~ Though the translator isn't named, likely this is an edition translated by C. Kegan Paul, one of the publishers. The Imitation of Christ was written by Catholic monk Thomas Kempis (circa 1380-1471), as four separate books completed between 1420 and 1427, at Mount Saint Agnes monastery, in the town of Windesheim, located in what is now the Netherlands. He wrote these works for the instruction of novices of his Augustinian monastic order, followers of Geert Groote's Brethren of the Common Life. But the writings quickly became popular among all the literate faithful. They were copied together in one manuscript as early as 1427, by Kempis, and copied (and later printed) together fairly consistently thereafter. Soon after hand-copied versions of the Imitatio Christi initially appeared, the printing press was invented, and it was among the first books after the Bible to be printed. There is probably no other book apart from the Bible which has been printed in so many editions and translations. In the past six hundred years, the work has been translated from Kempis' medieval Latin into nearly every language in the world. . Very Good. 1905. First Edition.

Prior owner name to blank front free-endpaper. Chip to lower tip of half title page. Otherwise, apart from slight marginal age toning and a couple of pages with slight marginal soiling, a very good copy - clean and unmarked - of this handsome printing. Note that this is a heavy and oversized book, so additional postage will be required for international or priority orders. ~KM2~ [3.5P] The Imitation of Christ was written (or at a minimum, transcribed) by Catholic monk Thomas Kempis (circa 1380-1471), as four separate books completed between 1420 and 1427, at Mount Saint Agnes monastery, in the town of Windesheim, located in what is now the Netherlands. He wrote these works for the instruction of novices of his Augustinian monastic order, followers of Geert Groote's Brethren of the Common Life. But the writings quickly became popular among all the literate faithful. They were copied together in one manuscript as early as 1427, by Kempis, and copied (and later printed) together fairly consistently thereafter. Soon after hand-copied versions of the Imitatio Christi initially appeared, the printing press was invented, and it was among the first books after the Bible to be printed. There is probably no other book other than the Bible which has been printed in so many editions and translations. . Good. 1884.
