        The Historie of Tithes. First Edition. London, 1618

      1618. Selden, John [1584-1654]. The Historie of Tithes, That is, The Practice of Payment of Them. The Positive Laws Made for Them. The Opinions Touching the Right of Them. A Review of It is Also Annext, Which Both Confirmes It and Directs in the Use of It. [London: s.n.], 1618. [vi], xxii, [12], 491, [5] pp. Quarto (5-1/2" x 7-1/2"). Recent period-style calf, blind frames to boards, raised bands and gilt title to spine, endpapers renewed. Light fading to portions of boards, corners lightly bumped. Title page printed in red and black. Toning, some discoloration and light wear to edges of title page and following few leaves, internally clean. A nice copy in a handsome binding. * First edition, variant A. (One of the eight variants, with all points indicated by Sweet & Maxwell). The History of Tithes, which was one of Selden's earliest writings, angered James I and the clergy because it questioned the divine right to impose tithes. Although it was suppressed by the Court of High Commission, the resulting controversy transformed Selden into a figure of national importance. His treatment by the church and state also encouraged his opposition to political absolutism, an idea that informs his later writings. Based on remarks in the dedication and on p. 449, Sweet & Maxwell believe this is not a true first edition. (The presumed earlier edition appears to be a ghost, however.) Sweet & Maxwell, A Legal Bibliography of the British Commonwealth 1:194-5.

        King Louis XIII Asks the Pope to Exempt the Benedictine Maurist Order from Taxation The request was made on the election of a new Chief Abbott

      King Louis XIII Asks the Pope to Exempt the Benedictine Maurist Order from Taxation & & The request was made on the election of a new Chief Abbott. & & Benedictine monks in France instituted reforms in Paris and then St-Augustin de Limoges in the second decade of the 17th century, requiring that those who desired to embrace the monastic life spend one year as postulants, a second as novices, and then, when they had completed the five years' course of philosophy and theology, spend a year of contemplation before they were admitted to the priesthood. The discipline was marked by a return to the strict rules of St. Benedict. All monks labored with their hands, all abstained from eating meat, all embraced poverty; the Divine Office was recited at the canonical hours with great solemnity, silence was observed for many hours, and there were regular times for private prayer and meditation. In 1618, it was decided that a congregation independent of Rome should be organized for the reformed houses in France, having its superior residing within that kingdom. This proposal was supported by Louis XIII as well as by Cardinal Richelieu, and letters patent were granted by the King. The Pope's approval followed. The new organization was named the Congregation of St-Maur, or Maurists. Dom Maur Dupont was elected head in 1627. In 1629, he sought to step down, which meant that an election would have to be held for his successor. & & Letter Signed in French, Fountainbleau, September 6, 1629, to Cardinal Guido Bentivoglio, who was entrusted by King Louis XIII with the management of French affairs at the papal court, and whom he addresses as "my cousin the Cardinal Bentivoglio, Protector of the Affairs of France at the court of Rome." "Having by my letters patent of the month of January 1627, recorded in my Grand Council, bestowed on Dom Maur Dupont the position of Abbot to the monks of the Abby of St. Augustin near my town of Limoges...and the congregation of St. Maur, and having arrived at the departure of the said Dupont, Abbot - the said position being up till now elective as it has been by virtue of the concord made between the Holy See and this Crown - and that the said election might be made by the general chapter of the monks of the said congregation for a person professed and nourished in reform and regularity and of no other, I write you this letter to tell you that I would have great pleasure if you would ask the Pope in my name for confirmation of the right to hold the election that I accorded to the monks, without obliging them to pay the rights of annata [tithes of office] because of the poverty and destitution of the said abbey, in which you would make me happy." & & Dom Gregorian Tarisse was elected as Dupont's successor and given the title of Superior-General, the first to hold that office. He was an important leader and strictly maintained the Maurists as an all-French order. When his years as leader ended, the group included over 80 monasteries.&

        Tripus Aureus, hoc est, Tres Tractatus Chymici Selectissimi, nempe I. Basilii Valentini...Practica una cum 12 clavibus & appendice, ex Germanico; II. Thomae Nortoni, Angli Philosophi, Crede mihi seu Ordinale, ante annos 1400 ab authore scriptum, nunc ex Anglicano manuscriptum in Latinum translatum, phrasi cuiusque authoris ut sententia retenta; III. Cremeri cuiusdam Abbatis Westmonasteriensis Angli Testamentum, hactenus nondum publicatum, nunc in diversarum nationum gratiam editi, & figuris cupro affabre incisis ornati opera & studio

      Frankfurt: Paul Jacob for Lucas Jennis, 1618. Hardcover. Good. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. 1-182 pp.; 1 divisional blank; 183-196 pp., 1 terminal blank, engraved vignette showing a distillation apparatus in operation in an alchemist's laboratory, portrait of Maier at the age of 49 on p. 7, and including 2 full-page engravings, 15 half-page engravings, and 2 a little larger than ¼ page. Bound in vellum-backed patterned paper over boards; title-page toned with tear to lower-right corner (not affecting text), some toning and light spotting throughout. Generally good. Scarce edition of three alchemical texts-comprising the first illustrated appearance of the 'Twelve Keys' of Basil Valentine, and the first printed editions of Thomas Norton' The Ordinall of Alchemy, and John Cremer's 'Testament'-collected by the pre-eminent Rosicrucian apologist Maier. The first work shows the intimate dependency of 17th C alchemy and hermeticism upon contemporary German emblem books and is accordingly found in Praz, as well as the standard bibliographies on alchemy or early chemistry. Similar in subject and execution to the exquisite suite of 50 emblems that appeared in Maier's most important work, Atalanta Fugiens (1617), it seems possible that these twelve emblems were also the work of Matthias Merian. Several of the images are even more enigmatic than those found in the earlier work or, for that matter, in any 17th C emblem we have seen. Basil Valentine's Twelve Keys was first published in Ein kurtz summarischer Tractat, von dem grossen Stein der Uralten... (Eisleben, 1599). Maier's illustrated edition of the work is by far the most influential; at least three of the dozen plates were reused in Johann Daniel Mylius' Opus medico-chymicum, published by Lucas Jennis in Frankfurt the same year, and the emblematic engravings continue to be studied in alchemical circles today. The illustrations include figures familiar from Atalanta and other alchemical texts: lions, dragons, eagles, and mythological human figures such as Orpheus and Eurydice. Craven describes some of the mystical symbolism: "That of the sixth key represents the marriage ceremony-the alchemistic union of Sol et Luna. Fire burns in a furnace at the masculine side; water is being poured into a retort at the feminine side" (Craven). Valentine is reputed to have been a Benedictine monk, born at Mayence 1394 and made prior of St. Peter's, at Erfurt, about the year 1414. While his very existence has been questioned-some scholars have suggested that the writings attributed to him were the product of the last decade of the 16th C-the chemical preparations and practical experiments described in his works are undoubtedly valuable for the procedures of contemporary alchemy.Ostensibly written in 1477, this is the first published appearance of Thomas Norton's The Ordinall of Alchemy. In his 1617 Symbola Aureae Mensae Maier mentioned Norton's poem as being still 'uneditus' but 'to be published shortly by us'. Republished in 1625, the Ordinal also appeared as the first text in Elias Ashmole's monumental compendium of English alchemy, Theatrum Chemicum Britannicum (1652). Norton earns a mention for having been influenced by Chaucer; the Ordinal itself is written in exceedingly irregular heroic couplets, often shortening themselves to octosyllables. The third text of the Golden Triplet is John Cremer's 'Testament', the source of several legends about Ramon Llull. Despite-or perhaps because of-the illicit nature of alchemy, these three texts are written in conversational, confiding tones, and include personal anecdotes to convince the readers of the authors' sincerity. They are also uniformly devout, imbuing the quest for gold with a godly purpose. The works are introduced by three epigrammatic poems, the third of which warns of the subject's duplicity: "Either the meaning of the Author or the letter of his writings is deceitful. / Be on your guard, therefore. Everywhere a serpent lurks among the flowers.

        Journal ou Description du merveilleux voyage de Guilliaume Schouten

      Amsterdam,: Guillaume Janson Blaeu, 1618.. Small quarto, with nine engraved folding maps and plates, some light staining and a blemish in a few upper margins but a very good copy in period style crushed morocco, spine gilt in compartments between raised bands. The first edition in French of this rare and important book, preceded only by the original Dutch versions of the same year (Amsterdam and Arnhem issues). Very many editions were to follow.This is the celebrated account of the Le Maire and Schouten expedition westward across the Pacific to the Indies, during which they discovered a new navigable passage south of Cape Horn. The maps, and particularly the well-known folding chart of a largely empty Pacific Ocean, demonstrate the magnitude of the achievement of Schouten and Le Maire in crossing the ocean from east to west, in order to reach the Spice islands without straying into the territories controlled by the monopolistic Dutch East India Company.Schouten and Le Maire named Cape Horn when they rounded it in 1616, visited several of the Tuamotus, and were the first westerners to visit the Tonga islands. They then coasted New Ireland and New Guinea on their way to the Spice Islands and eventually Batavia.The importance of the book to contemporary geographical understanding cannot be overstated; it was 'the last seventeenth-century expedition to search for Terra Australis from the east' (Schilder). The voyage was made under the auspices of the newly formed group of Dutch traders known as the Australian Company, set up to compete with the Dutch East India Company and to search for the elusive Terra Australis. It was of great importance for the future history of discovery in that it proved the existence of a passage from the southern Atlantic into the Pacific, south of the Straits of Magellan round Cape Horn, and therefore finally demonstrated that the supposed Southern Continent, contrary to the maps of Ortelius and Mercator, did not extend to the Straits of Magellan.Although this account presents itself as Schouten's journal of the voyage, as Schilder points out 'the facts were misrepresented. It appeared from it that all the discoveries of the expedition owed their origin to Schouten and that he had a financial share in the expedition amounting to half the capital...'. A later edition of the voyage published in 1622 revealed that Schouten had overstated his importance, and this supposedly authentic account of the voyage was mostly lifted from the ship's log kept by Jacob Le Maire.This edition, produced in Amsterdam by the publisher and cartographer Willem Blaeu, is one of two variant French-language issues of 1618 noted by the bibliographer Tiele (no priority has been assigned). Within a few years the account was frequently reprinted, indeed Tiele identifies as many as 38 early editions of the Schouten narrative printed in the Netherlands alone (Latin, Spanish and English editions appeared soon afterwards). Another French-language edition was printed in Paris later in the same year.Not in Landwehr, 'VOC'; Tiele , 984; Tiele-Muller, 37.

        Le Relationi Universali

      Venice,: Alessandro de Vecchi, 1618., 1618.. Small thick quarto, with 32 woodcuts in the "Aggiunta" section; some marginal repairs in the "Aggiunta" and two of the leaves crudely coloured, inkstains to another; lacking eight text leaves in the main work and four leaves of index, but the "Aggiunta" section complete; old quarter vellum. First of two editions, both very rare. This wonderful book, printed early in the seventeenth century, contains a remarkable series of woodcuts actually prepared in the sixteenth century but not then published. Wormholes in the actual woodblocks that show clearly in the printing suggest that the blocks lay idle for a substantial time. These haunting images, partly the work of the artist Hans Burgkmair, represent the general European perception of the mysteries of the undiscovered worlds to the east and south. Woodcuts of the creatures likely to be found inhabiting these lands are accompanied by others of actual native peoples encountered on a real voyage, without much distinction being drawn between real and imaginary. These weird imaginings include numerous remarkable evolutionary fantasies such as the skiapod whose immense foot has developed to shield him from the fierce sun, and numerous permutations of man-beast combinations.The eighth part of this posthumous edition of Botero's chronicle contains these thirty-two sixteenth-century woodcuts, which depict "Monsters and Customs of the Indies, with their King including lively illustrations of them". Fifteen cuts portray monsters or "Prodigies", while seventeen illustrate actual natives of India, Africa and Arabia. This latter part of the series represents the first serious study of African and Oriental native life and dress for publication in a European travel book.Of this last group, eight are from a larger block of 1508, which formed a panorama by Burgkmair known as 'The Procession of the King of Cochin'. The panorama was to have illustrated an account of a voyage to India undertaken by the German merchant, Balthasar Springer, on a Portuguese vessel in 1505-6. Springer's account was never published and no complete impression of the block appears to be known.Some of these remarkable images are familiar from the dramatic reproductions in the 1988 "Terra Australis" exhibition. As Eisler remarked in the catalogue (Terra Australis, fig. 1, p. 16), the woodblocks represent "one of the earliest and most dramatic studies of exotic people from the tropical regions visited by the Portuguese". They were the immediate source for the extraordinary tapestry 'Triumph of the King of Cochin' by the Arras workshop, now in the MusÈe des Arts Africains et OcÈaniens Terra Australis, no. 2).Botero's universal geography was first printed in Rome in 1591, without the eighth part. Published in many editions and translations, it has always been highly regarded. Only in the two Vecchi editions of 1618 and 1622-3 is the Aggiunta found with it; in fact, when Oakeshott first discovered a copy with the Burgkmair cuts he thought it to be unique. This copy, as noted above, lacks a number of leaves in the main work but the Aggiunta section, a separate work that sometimes exists as a stand-alone volume, is complete.JCB, p. 161 (1622 edition only, lacking the 'Aggiunta'); Lach, 'Asia in the Making of Europe', II/2, pp. 235-52; Lowendahl, 'China Illustrata Nova', 38 (multiple editions starting from 1599); see Oakeshott, 'Some Woodcuts by Hans Burgkmair', Roxburghe Club, 1960.

        Historical Collections, Abrid'd and Improv'd, Complete Six Volumes

      London A superb memoir of British politics 1618 to 1648, a very early beginning of political science., this first edition in 8 vo. size published between 1703 and 1708. No printer's imprint or publisher listed, only "London (and the date in Roman numerals)". The first editions of this work appeared in eight parts between 1659 and 1701, in folio size. Sometimes called "the Rushworth Papers", they were attacked by royalist writers for alleged partiality. Despite the truth of the charge, it is still a useful reference for the reign of Charles I, who declared war on Parliament in 1642, beginning England's Civil Wars and the rise of Oliver Cromwell. Rushworth became Secretary of the New Model Army and served General Fairfax, under Cromwell. When the King was captured, tried , and executed, Rushworth made a detailed record of the events which led to the King's demise. His attacks on the King were later to be echoed by Thomas Paine and Thomas Jefferson in the American frustration with George III, leading to United States independence. Rushworth remained close to Cromwell, becoming his personal secretary and writing the plans to abolish the monarchy. He was a long time Member of Parliament from Berwick. Among his friends were John Milton, John Owen, John Bunyan and Samuel Pepys. When Charles II was restored to the monarchy, Rushworth was among those whom the new King lashed out at for the execution of his father. He was jailed and spent the last six years of his life in Southwark prison. Full contemporary calf boards , blindstamped in the Cambridge style, some wear at the corners which have been neatly repaired. New calf spines in the 17th Century style, with raised bands, gilt lines along the bands and gilt emblems in the spine panels. Title labels and volume labels in deep red on all six volumes. Very fine bindings, all hinges fine, and inside some age toning, as might be expected after 300 plus years. Restored by one of England's finest binders. A very nice set. . Full-Leather. Very Good Plus. Illus. by Frontispiece in Volume One, & Engraved Portraits of James I, Charles I and George Villiers.. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

        IOURNAL OU RELATION EXACTE DU VOYAGE DE GVILL. SCHOUTEN, DANS LES INDES: PAR VN NOUUEAU DESTROIT, & PAR LES GRANDES MERS AUSTRALES QU'IL À DESCOUUERT, VERS LE POLE ANTARTIQUE. ENSEMBLE DES NOUVELLES TERRES AUPARAUANT INCOGNUËS, ISLES,

      Paris: Chez M. Gobert, 1618.. [13],232pp. plus four folding maps and four folding plates. Contemporary vellum, manuscript title on backstrip. "E" signature supplied from another copy. Quite clean and neat internally. A lovely, near fine copy. In a half morocco and cloth box. Famed philosopher John Locke's copy, with his ink ownership inscription on the front pastedown. In front of his signature Locke has made the notation "b" which, according to THE LIBRARY OF JOHN LOCKE by Harrison and Laslett, was an inventory mark put into books in or about 1697 and not to be found in any books acquired after that date. Locke has noted at the foot of the titlepage that this is a duplicate copy. The rare first Paris edition. Undertaken in 1615 and lasting until 1617, this important expedition was the third complete circumnavigation, after Magellan in 1519 and Drake in 1577. The expedition was the first to round Cape Horn from the east, naming the Cape after the Dutch town of Hoorn, whose aggressive traders sponsored the voyage. In addition, the expedition explored the Pacific coast of South America, pursued the search for Terra Australis, and proved that Tierra del Fuego was not an island. Principle among the merchant benefactors of Hoorn was Isaac Le Maire, whose son, Jacob Le Maire, was charged as the director of the enterprise, and for whom the Le Maire strait is named. "Partly inspired by Quiros and motivated by Dutch trading zeal, this [voyage] was the essential precursor to Tasman's voyage; indeed Tasman made great use of Le Maire's mapping of the ocean. The Le Maire voyage, the last of the seventeenth century expeditions to search for the unknown continent from the east, was responsible for extensive discoveries in the Pacific..." - Hordern House. This edition contains four maps and four plates. They are: a map of the world in two hemispheres with surrounding portraits; a map of Tierra del Fuego; a map of the South Sea; a plate of a Polynesian sailing a canoe; a plate bearing the inscription, "Isle de Cocos"; a plate bearing the inscription, "Isle de Hoorn"; a plate of the "Indian kings" and their village; and a map of Nova Guinea. This copy has the pagination errors on pages 56, 215, and 179, not found in all copies. Schouten's work was originally published in Amsterdam in 1618 by Willem Jansz Blaeu. Though printed in his name, Schouten was most likely not the author of the present work, and it was probably compiled for him by Blaeu from the ships' logs. The work proved exceedingly popular, "no fewer than thirty- eight editions of the work were printed in Holland alone between the year 1618 and 1766" (Church). This is the first Paris edition. A fundamental voyage in worldwide navigation. SABIN 77952. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 618/119. PALAU 305104 (Paris 1619 ed) TIELE-MULLER 42n.

      Paris: Chez M. Gobert, 1618. 8vo. 4 folding maps, 4 folding plates. (Signature "E" supplied from another copy). Contemporary vellum, manuscript title on spine, modern morocco-backed slipcase. John Locke's copy of the rare first Paris edition of "Willem Schouten's voyage around the world, during which Cape Horn was discovered and rounded for the first time" (Hill): a landmark voyage in the history of western exploration. Schouten's voyage was one of the great early voyages of discovery and only the third circumnavigation. Undertaken in 1615 and lasting until 1617, this important expedition succeded in its primary objective which was to find an alternative route to the rich sources of wealth in the Pacific. The Dutch East India Company had a strangle-hold on the two known routes: via the Cape of Good Hope and through the Straits of Magellan. A rival group of aggressive Dutch traders, formed the "Compagnie Australe", and eqiuiped the expedition with discovered and rounded Cape Horn, named after the Dutch town of Hoorn where the sponsors were based. In addition, the expedition explored the Pacific coast of South America, pursued the search for Terra Australis, and proved that Tierra del Fuego was not an island. Principle among the Hoorn merchant benefactors was Isaac Le Maire, whose son, Jacob Le Maire, was charged as the director of the enterprise. Jacob named the Le Maire strait in honour of his father. "The ship Eendracht, while crossing the Pacific, discovered some of the Tuamotu Islands, the Hoorn Islands, the Schouten Islands, and visited New Guinea, the Moluccas, and Batavia. When Schouten and Le Maire arrived in Ternate, their ship was confiscated by the Dutch East India Company [as they were unable to convince the authorities that they had arrived by a third unrestricted route] ... The Dutch governor of Batavia sent them back to the Netherlands with Joris van Spilbergen ... Thus these famous navigators returned home together. Sadly, Jacob Le Maire did not share the honors, as he died of fever at Mauritius on the return trip" (Hill [2004] p.547). This edition contains four maps and four plates: 1. map of the world in two hemispheres with surrounding portraits; 2. map of Tierra del Fuego; 3. map of the South Sea; 4. plate of a Polynesian sailing a canoe; 5. plate bearing the inscription, "Isle de Cocos"; 6. plate bearing the inscription, "Isle de Hoorn"; 7. plate of the "Indian kings" and their village; 8. map of Nova Guinea. This copy has the pagination errors on pages 56, 215, and 179, that are not found in all copies. Schouten's work was originally published in Amsterdam in 1618 by Willem Jansz Blaeu. Though printed in his name, Schouten was most likely not the author of the present work, and it was probably compiled for him by Blaeu from the ships' logs. The work proved to be exceedingly popular, "no fewer than thirty-eight editions of the work were printed in Holland alone between the year 1618 and 1766" (Church). This copy has the additional interest of having belonged to the famous philosopher John Locke, and includes his ink ownership inscription on the front pastedown. In front of his signature Locke has made the notation "b" which, according to The library of John Locke by Harrison and Laslett, was an inventory mark put into books in or about 1697 and not to be found in any books acquired after that date. Locke has noted at the foot of the titlepage that this is a duplicate copy. A translation of part of Locke's epitaph reads: "bred a scholar, he made his learning subservient only to the cause of truth", a dictum that led to a period of exile in Amsterdam. Locke "is widely regarded as one of the most influential Enlightenment thinkers and contributors to liberal theory. His writings influenced Voltaire and Rousseau, many Scottish Enlightenment thinkers, as well as the American revolutionaries. This influence is reflected in the American Declaration of Independence."

Planscherna och titelbladen graverades av Vallentin Staffansson Trautman, "kopparstickarre i Norreförstadh" i Stockholm. Träsnitten är utförda av Jacob Mores, guldsmed och gravör i Hamburg. Lindberg skriver: "The frames to these illustrations are by the same artist and technique and consist of grotesques and the vices and virtues within strap-work in the style of the dutch artist Jan Vredeman de Vries. These metal blocks were later used for abridged so-called figure-bibles in the 18th and 19th centuries and through these editions came to inspire the famous wall-painters of Dalarna, among the most interesting features of swedish folk-art." I redaktionen ingick bl.a. Johannes Rudbeckius. Fredrik Stahl är eventuellt identisk med den Fredrik Staël von Holstein som enligt Lewenhaupt var konduktör vid fortifikationen i Pernau, senare kapten vid fortifikationen i Göteborg och som avgick 1701 "för dess förgripelses skull". Stahls skriver att boken skänkts till kungliga biblioteket i Pernau 1709 av en medborgare i Pernau. Eventuellt syftar denna "medborgare" på Stahl själv

        King Louis XIII Asks the Pope to Exempt the Benedictine Maurist Order from Taxation The request was made on the election of a new Chief Abbott

      King Louis XIII Asks the Pope to Exempt the Benedictine Maurist Order from Taxation The request was made on the election of a new Chief Abbott. Benedictine monks in France instituted reforms in Paris and then St-Augustin de Limoges in the second decade of the 17th century, requiring that those who desired to embrace the monastic life spend one year as postulants, a second as novices, and then, when they had completed the five years' course of philosophy and theology, spend a year of contemplation before they were admitted to the priesthood. The discipline was marked by a return to the strict rules of St. Benedict. All monks labored with their hands, all abstained from eating meat, all embraced poverty; the Divine Office was recited at the canonical hours with great solemnity, silence was observed for many hours, and there were regular times for private prayer and meditation. In 1618, it was decided that a congregation independent of Rome should be organized for the reformed houses in France, having its superior residing within that kingdom. This proposal was supported by Louis XIII as well as by Cardinal Richelieu, and letters patent were granted by the King. The Pope's approval followed. The new organization was named the Congregation of St-Maur, or Maurists. Dom Maur Dupont was elected head in 1627. In 1629, he sought to step down, which meant that an election would have to be held for his successor. Letter Signed in French, Fountainbleau, September 6, 1629, to Cardinal Guido Bentivoglio, who was entrusted by King Louis XIII with the management of French affairs at the papal court, and whom he addresses as "my cousin the Cardinal Bentivoglio, Protector of the Affairs of France at the court of Rome." "Having by my letters patent of the month of January 1627, recorded in my Grand Council, bestowed on Dom Maur Dupont the position of Abbot to the monks of the Abby of St. Augustin near my town of Limoges...and the congregation of St. Maur, and having arrived at the departure of the said Dupont, Abbot - the said position being up till now elective as it has been by virtue of the concord made between the Holy See and this Crown - and that the said election might be made by the general chapter of the monks of the said congregation for a person professed and nourished in reform and regularity and of no other, I write you this letter to tell you that I would have great pleasure if you would ask the Pope in my name for confirmation of the right to hold the election that I accorded to the monks, without obliging them to pay the rights of annata [tithes of office] because of the poverty and destitution of the said abbey, in which you would make me happy." Dom Gregorian Tarisse was elected as Dupont's successor and given the title of Superior-General, the first to hold that office. He was an important leader and strictly maintained the Maurists as an all-French order. When his years as leader ended, the group included over 80 monasteries.
