Sébastien Joseph du CAMBOUT DE PONTCHATEAU

La morale pratique des Jesuites. Representée en plusieurs histoires arrivées dans toutes les parties du monde

Chez Gervinus Quentel [Elzevier], à Cologne [Amsterdam] 1669, in-16 (7,5x13,6cm), (20) 44, 287pp., relié.


Original edition. Printing presses of lowercase Elzevier. Copy set.
Bound in red full morocco period said with Threshold. Back with nerves decorated with the grotesque. Part of title and volume number in red morocco. Dishes decorated with a triple net coaching repeated with the jewels in the spandrels. Gilt edges. Jaws slightly rubbed, but very nice copy, very rare in this exceptional condition in period morocco with Threshold.
A later edition includes 8 volumes, one he has other Deputy volumes on the Jesuit missions abroad, particularly in China and India, but the original edition is published in a single volume, and its text does not contain not on. Violent pamphlet directed against the Jesuits, seeking by all rhetorical and historical ways to lower the value and role of the famous congregation. The order of the story is so completely revised in order to convince the Jesuits are the enemies of Christ and the holy religion, and their long history is only a result of intrigues and takeovers . Some chapters describe the order of actions in Japan and other foreign countries where the Jesuits set up missions.
Bookplates Henri Ploughman.
