Psalterion toy Dabid kata tous Hebdomekonta eis ta tmemata, ta en te tes Agglikanes Ekkesias leitourgia nomizomena, diegemenon. 12mo. 1664. [2], 115, [3], 117–71, [1] pp. [and] Bible. New Testament. Greek. 1665. Tes kaines diathekes apanta. 12mo. [2], 419, [1], pp.    First edition of this Greek translation of the Book of Common Prayer. The preface is signed "I.D.," i.e., James Duport, a popular professor of Greek at the University of Cambridge, who had the year before printed a translation of the Psalter (which appears here with the BCP as issued, under a separate title-page) and Ordinal, along with the Greek New Testament and Apocrypha (the title-page of the New Testament being an insert, and the Apocrypha having separate pagination). This is only the second translation of the BCP into Greek, following the first by Elias Petley in 1638. There were apparently two settings of this edition produced by printer John Field in the same year, under the same title and imprint, with priority not established; the present example has line six of the main title-page all in capital letters, and the "Alma mater Cantabrigia" device following the last page of the Psalter — but while the sun is on the left and the cup on the right of the Psalter title-page device, they are reversed on the New Testament title-page, apparently indicating that the New Testament is from a variant post-dating the BCP and Psalter.    Binding: Contemporary mottled calf Cambridge-style, covers framed in double gilt fillets and panelled in triple gilt fillets with gilt-tooled corner fleurons; spine with gilt-stamped leather title-label and gilt-ruled compartments.    Provenance: Front free endpaper with early inscription in red pencil: "Gibson's [/] Queens [/] Oxon. [/] 1787[?]." Most recently in the library of American collector Albert A. Howard (sans indicia).         Biblos: Wing (rev.) B3632; ESTC R204258; Griffiths 45:3. Psalterion: Wing B2720A; ESTC R204259. Tes kaines diathekes: Darlow & Moule 4702; Wing B2733. Bound as above, worn and showing expectable acid-pitting with edges, extremities, and spine rubbed; spine label cracked with loss of central portion of label. Endpapers with early inked annotations in Greek and English. Central portion with top-marginal faint to light waterstaining, generally though not always but a sliver; one leaf with tear from outer margin into text, with loss of one letter; one leaf with short tear along paper flaw, without loss of text. Final work with early inked underlining; rear fly-leaf with a few jotted references in Greek. => A scholar's copy of this nice example of early English Greek liturgical/scriptural printing.

        L'AMBASSADE DE LA COMPAGNIE ORIENTALE DES PROVINCES UNIES VERS L'EMPEREUR DE LA

      - Leyde 1665, Meurs. Old velum, gold stamped, very good, few marginal tears neatly repaired, 2 parts in 1, 35 double page & 109 half page engravings, 134p., plate list, tall folio 24 x 38 cm., usual binding wear, spine cracks but solid.RARE A beautiful early work, magnificently illustrated, nearly 150 plates & engravings with extensive description of China. Nieuhoff was the chronicler and draftsman for the first Dut- ch Embassy there. In the mid-17th century, the Dutch were at the height of their power and wanted to gain trade access in the China Trade. In the face of great opposition they succe- eded in sending merchants to Canton. Nieuhoff made drawings during his travel to Canton & Peking, and were used to make the first engravings of China to be published in England. This work is the record of the Dutch Embassy's efforts in China. These efforts were thwarted by Portuguese Jesuit inrigues. * THE FIRST FRENCH EDITION: This First French edition consists of 290 pages of main text followed by: AVIS AUX CURIEUX. Copie d'une lettre ecrite en Batavie par NN. a Mr. N. Marchand de la ville d'Amfterdam, en date u 2. Feverier 1659, pp. 289-290. New pagination continues in the Seconde Partie: from page 1-134, with title: DESCRIPTION GENERALE DE L'EMPRIE DE LA CHINE. This is followed by a list of plates in parts I and II. * The illustrations depict all of the major cities,the flora and fauna, manners, dress & curiosities of China. With a beautiful and original folding map of China by Nieuhoff. A rich primary source for early meetings between the East and West. * The work and its map were done by Nieuhoff, then copper engraved by Hollar. The count of plates differ between the various editions. There are various ways to count the plates, there is no standard, we count them as 'full page' and as 'text plates' which seems logical. Some 'full page' plates actually have two illustrations on them. The actual location of some of the full-page plates will also vary, according to the "list of plates" issued with this book. This is entirely normal. *** This early account of China covers a wide variety of subjects including a large section on newly discovered plants, herbs and fruits of South China. It begins with a double page copper etched map of all China, Corea, part of Japan, Formosa, South to the Kingdom of Cannan [Annam or Viet-nam], Tartary. It includes and shows the outlined provinces with rivers noted, and the small cities along the great rivers; lakes, animals, flora and fauna. Additionally covers landscapes, views of villages, temples, people &c. * THE TEXT & COPPER-ETCHED PLATES: Major cities such as Canton, Nan-an, Kan-Chou, Nanking, Kiu Kiang, An King, Wuhu, Yang Chow are nicely illustrated and described. Peking also are carefully described and noted, with key & distance chart of miles. A meticulous description of the people, laws, customs, provinces given in much detail. The work is lavishly illustrated with fine examples. Each edition of this title had variant numbers of plates. These high-quality copper plates illustrate the manners, costume and customs of the Chinese. * This embassy was Europe's first attempt to open China to the west. A truly superb and marvelous primary resource. Stunning, documenting an important beginning in European contact and diplomatic history with China. Books of this period, size, and caliber have now become exceptionally scarce, and seldom found complete in excellent condition. * JAN NIEUHOFF [1618-1672] & THE DUTCH: Jan [John in English] Nieuhoff was the steward, chronicler and draftsman for the first Dutch embassy to China. In the mid-17 century, the Dutch were at the height of their power and decided to gain access to China and a share of the Chinese trade. After a great deal of Chinese opposition, the Dutch did manage to succeed in sending some merchants to test the trade waters of Canton. The drawings during Nieuhoff's travels of both Canton and Peking were also later used to produce the first engra

      Amsterdam, Baltes Boekholt (col.: Paulus Warnaer), 1665. Contemporary vellum, bumped and stained. Inside some minor stains. With an engraved frontispiece and 29 engraved plates.Titlepage and fist gathering worn at the edges, traces of use. Dutch translation of 'A relation of a journey' by George Sandys (1578-1644), one of the most famous travel books of the seventeenth century. Sandys travelled to the Levant in 1610 and spent a year in Turkey, Palestine and Egypt before returng to England to become a bishop. His observations first appeared in 1615 and his text was soon regarded as a special authority on the Levant. Between 1616 en 1673 another 6 English editions appeared. In 1653 the first edition of the Dutch translation was published in Amsterdam by Jacob Benjamin. The translation (by ‘J.G.’ ) has in the past erroneously been attributed to J. Glazemaker, but it was in fact made by the mennonite Amsterdam pharmacist Johannes Grindal (1616-1696), who translated more than 20 English books into Dutch. A second edition appeared in Utrecht by Lambert Roeck in 1654. The present copy belongs to the third and final edition, published by the Amsterdam bookseller Baltes Boekholt in 1665 (printed by Paulus Warnaer). B0113 The book is illustrated with an attractive frontispice that shows the religious nature of the book, with full figure portraits of Achmet and Iris with their attributes and with four symbolic medallions. This frontispice looks like the one of a London edition by R. Field in 1621, but is different in the details. Clearly this earlier English version was used as the example. Some of the plates inside this Dutch copy are different from the one from London and some are the same. There are different types of illustrations: some full page plates show historical and biblical scenes from the countries that Sandys visited, such as Chios and Turkey. There are also plates of city plans and noteworthy buildings such as the Temple in Jerusalem. All these plates do not appear in the London copy. From there on follow in-text topograpic plates that are oddly maneristic in the way the landscape and clouds are depicted. These are the same as the ones in London. More research is needed on the re-use of the plates between the Dutch and English edition and why some plates had to be replaced and others not.

[ ] La réinterprétation de l'histoire de Fiesque par Retz a été considérée par les critiques comme un "catéchisme révolutionnaire", un "manuel du parfait conspirateur", une méditation sur les conspirations.[ ] Le cardinal de Richelieu, ayant lu la Conjuration [ ] jugea correctement sa valeur prémonitoire puisqu'il dit de son auteur : "Voilà un dangereux esprit" (Mémoires, p. 64)."

GREAT WORK ON CRYPTOGRAPHY BY ATHANASIUS KIRCHER'S ASSISTANT. First edition of this early work on cryptography and ciphers, and more specifically secret writing. Schott (1608-1666) Jesuit, student and assistant of Athanasius Kircher, during the last years of his life he decided to publish the mass of material he had collected on scientific subjects both from his own researches and those of others. He produced in a period of eight years (1658-1666) eleven books. He taught mathematics and physics at Mainz and Würzberg. He "...yearned for the intellectual delights of Rome, and after twenty-five years in Italy he suffered from German winters and had to have his own hypocaust installed...Exhausted, it is said, by overwork on his books, he died in 1666." DSB XII, p.211. "Steganography fallas into two branches, linguistic steganography and technical steganography. Only the first is closely related to cryptography. The technical aspect can be covered very quickly: invisible inks have been in use since Pliny's time. Onion juice and milk have proved popular and effective through the ages (turning brown under heat or ultraviolet light)." - Friedrich L. Bauer, Decrypted Secrets: Methods and Maxims of Cryptology, p.8. Provenance: Hedwig & Eberhard Frey.

Londini, Ex officina Rogeri Danielis, MDCLVII

      London (& Paris): et veneunt Parisiis, apud Fredericum Leonard, 1665.. Good+. 1665 & 1657. Full Leather. [24], 552, [24] p. pages; Lexicon Geographicum, in quo Universi Orbis Oppida, Urbes, Regiones, Provinciae, Regna ... Antiquis Recentibusque Nominibus appellata, suisque distantiis descripta recensentur ... Authore Fr. Philippo Ferrario ... Editio nova ... Adnectitur Tabula Longitudinis ac Latitudinis Urbium & Oppidorum per totum terrarum Orbem, ex ejusdem Philippi Ferrarii Epitome Geographica desumpta. Londini : et veneunt Parisiis, apud Fredericum Leonard, 1665. Contemporary full leather, (suede, or reversed calf), six raised bands on the spine, edges of the text decoratively sprinkled red. This binding shows considerable rubbing and scuffing, with most of the decorative stamping eroded from the spine (the author and title are stamped in gilt directly in the second panel, and this is now just legible), with rubbing and loss along portions of the hinges (particularly the rear), the lower headband is partly missing, and there are several scrapes and two loose strips of leather on the rear cover. Internally some scattered foxing and a small Jesuit library stamp no the title page (no other marks). A sound copy, complete. This is a geographical dictionary by Filippo Ferrari, who taught mathematics and astronomy at the University of Pavia. He published an early version of this major work in 1605 [Epitome Geographicum] but the full text was not published until the year after his death, in 1627 - [ Mediolani [Milan]: Apud I.I. Comum, 1627]. This particular edition was prepared in England by William Dillingham (1617?-1689), master of Emmanuel College, Cambridge. The first part of the text appears to be a reissue of the edition printed in London by Roger Daniel in 1657. There are separate title pages to part 2 (Lexici Geographici Pars altera) and the table of longitudes (Adnectitur Tabula Longitudinis ac Latitudinis Urbium & Oppidorum per totum terrarum Orbem). Both of these have the London imprint of Roger Daniel, 1557. The mention of London on the title page of this (partial?) 1665 edition is enough to earn a citation in Wing F 815 (British Library copy only). That British Library copy is the basis of a digital reproduction (see Yale, National Library of Australia, etc.) In the description accompanying this, it is stated that the BL copy is "Imperfect: tightly bound, stained and faded with slight loss of print." Our copy is nicer, (with two leaves showing a paper flaw at the top margin which does not affect the text block -- Fff 2&3). It is interesting that the collation of the first part in this 1665 version is identical to the 1657 edition produced by Daniel in London (right down to the mistaken duplication of the page numbers 150-1 on two consecutive pairs of pages). This was necessary to match up with the stock of Daniel's 1657 originial "Pars altera" which has pagination and signature marks continuous with the first part). In all, a sound and complete copy of a scarce geographical lexicon, in its original binding (which is worn, but quite serviceable). Roger Daniel is better known as a printer in Cambridge, but he certainly worked in London as well (where he is known to have printed a portion of the Shakespeare Third Folio). Collation: *4, **4, A-3Z4, &c.6, A-C4 - [C4 is blank]. [24], 552 ("150-1" repeated), [24, "Tabula Longitudinis"] & [2, blank] pp. ; Experience the pleasure of reading and appreciating this actual printed item. It has its own physical history that imbues it with a character lacking in ephemeral electronic renderings. .

Cuerpo desprendido; rotura con falta en lomo; algunas llamadas de atención manuscritas en los márgenes.- // Proc.: Exlibris manuscrito del convento de San Lorenzo de Velletri y un sello de tampón ilegible.- // Refs.: Caillet, III, 7203.- // Las primeras ediciones de este compendio de prácticas y normas para el ejercicio de su 'oficio' por los inquisidores, escrito por el inquisidor Eliseo Masini da Bologne, las imprimió en Génova Giuseppe Pavoni en 1621 y en 1625. Fallecido el autor en 1627, en Roma apareció en 1639, impresa por los herederos de Corbelletti, una edición ampliada, sin que se sepa quien fue el responsable de los cambios. Un dato relevante es que, a partir de esa edición, el Sacro arsenale comenzó a mencionar la Instrucción, que Roma venía difundidendo en secreto desde 1621, de evitar propasarse en los tormentos para estimular las confesiones en los procesos de brujería con el fin de evitar inculpaciones falsas. Una instrucción que tenía su origen último en la revisión que se hizo del célebre proceso de Logroño de 1612 y sus desmanes. Las novedades respecto a 1621 incluían que el repertorio de los 200 criterios que todo inquisidor debía tener en cuenta aumentó hasta alcanzar 300, y que las nueve partes originales de su obra aumentaron a 10 por la inserción de un breve capítulo sobre cómo proceder en los casos de poligamia.Catorce años después, en 1653, Sebastiano Zecchino volvió a imprimirlo en Génova, con el texto corregido y ampliado aún más, también de mano desconocida, aunque en esta ocasión se mencionaba haber tenido en cuenta las obras del laico Prospero Farinacci, de Antonio Santarelli, de Antonino Diana, de Cesar Carena, de Juan Bautista Larrea y de Filippo Pascale (este, en materia de patria potestad en el caso de los herejes), modificando y ampliando algunos pasajes. Esa versión ampliada impresa en 1653 fue la que volvió a imprimirse en 1665, en Bolonia, a instancias de Paolo Baglioni, curiosamente, en dos ediciones diferentes con el mismo pie de imprenta. Una, con una viñeta de iconografía jesuítica en portada, a la que corresponde este ejemplar, y otra donde la viñeta representa a la Trinidad. Compartiendo exactamente el mismo texto, la misma paginación y las mismas signaturas, son dos composiciones tipográficas diferentes para las que se emplean capitales y adornos tipográficos diferentes, y tipos también parcialmente diferentes. Ambas variantes de 1665 presentaban una novedad: se publicaron acompañadas de un apéndice, de autoría desconocida, con paginación y signaturas propias, que falta con mucha frecuencia, titulado Aggionte al sacro arsenale della Santa Inquisitione, en el que se recogen un listado de publicaciones prohibidas, el modo de expurgar los libros de oraciones y sucesivos decretos y constituciones referidos a las confesiones. A partir de esta, todas las ediciones posteriores del Sacro arsenale (1679, 1693, 1705.) mantendrán el Aggionte incorporado como última parte del libro. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Första upplagan av lexikonet utkom 1651 och en tredje 1674. Som forskare i svensk rätt och som lärare introducerade Loccenius rättsvetenskapen i Sverige, och behovet av ett lexikon som definierade och översatte det ålderdomliga svenska rättsspråket till latin var stort. Loccenius arbetade även ständigt vidare på detta lexikon och varje ny upplaga innebar förbättringar. De ibland felande 16 sidorna i slutet av lexikonet består av tillägget ?Auctarium lexici juris, et speciatim legum Westro-gothicarum, Westmannicarum & Sudermannicarum?, och utkom endast till denna andra upplaga. Det återfinns dock ibland även bundet med tredje upplagan. ?Antiquitatum? i den andra separata upplagan (se ovan nr. 130). Andreas Claudii Julinus var son till Clas Julinus och sonson till Andreas Magni Julinus. Han skrevs in vid Uppsala universitet 21/10 1692

Also here they may know their place and worth, with all the degrees and distinctions of honour in the realm: shewing how every one ought to take place, with the titles due to them; with other things of antiquity very observeable.

      London, printed by G.M.* for Will. Crooke, at the three bibles on Fleet-Bridge, 1665. 8vo., (4) + 66 + (2)pp., with 7 small woodcuts in the text, contemporary plain ruled sheep, head and foot of spine just a little worn else a very good crisp copy. First edition. A charming little book of etiquette dedicated by the author 'To the Worshipful Thomas Clifford, Esquire, and to the worshipful Henry Ford, Esquire, Justices of the Peace, for the County of Devon'. The author provides the reader with the rules of precedence of all and sundry from farm workers, and shopkeepers at the lowest level, through various ranks of craftsmen and the science-based professions (the Doctor of Physick, the orator, mathematician, geometrician, astronomer, musician and poet). There is a substantial section on funerals, including a table of what effectively were death duties, and also a useful index. The author seems to be otherwise unknown. * The printer, identified by Wing, was George Miller.

Augmented, revised, and enlarged Second Edition (first published, in French, in 1658) of one of the most significant seventeenth century sources on the natural history and ethnography of the West Indies, their peoples, trade, flora and fauna, with digressions on the Eskimo and Indian nations, early European settlements of Florida, Georgia, the Appalachians, and Greenland, and, importantly, the African slave trade, the sugar trade, and sugar plantations. The first parts relates principally to the natural history of the islands, and the second to the manners, custom, religion and arts of their peoples. A vocabulary of the Carib language rounds out the content. "Much of the material may have been collected by De Poincy, but the principal or rather sole compiler of the work appears to have been Charles de Rochefort, pastor of the French Protestant church at Rotterdam, who had resided several years in the West Indies. His name and profession are given in full only on the title of the Dutch translation published at Rotterdam in 1662. . . . Notwithstanding, . . . the work is an important and valuable contribution to our knowledge of the Antilles and their inhabitants." (Sabin). N. B.

        HISTOIRE NATURELLE ET MORALE DES ILES ANTILLES DE L'AMERIQUE

      Rotterdam, 1665. Engraved title, title-leaf, [32],583,[13]pp. plus three folding plates. Forty-four copper plate engravings. Quarto. Old vellum. Vellum dust soiled, small portion of spine lacking. Occasional light foxing or toning. Bottom margin of one folding plate trimmed, slightly affecting explanation. Another folding plate neatly detached. Overall a very nice copy. The second French edition. This copy contains the armorial bookplates of Mathew Wilson and Frances Mary Richardson Currer. Currer (1785-1861) was a renowned British book collector who occasionally had privately printed catalogues of her collection produced. Her library, said to have been comprised of some 20,000 fine books, was sold through Sotheby's in 1862. "The books were all in choice condition, many with fine bindings....The books contain an heraldic book-plate, and are generally noticeable for their fine condition" - DNB. Mathew Wilson was Currer's grandfather or father (both were of the same name), of Eshton Hall, Yorkshire. This important work on the islands of the Caribbean, with interesting information on Florida, Georgia, and the Eskimos, was originally published in French in 1658, its main purpose being the encouragement of Huguenot emigration to America. Its greatest contribution was the impressive marshalling of contemporary information on the Caribbean islands, especially the French and British colonies developing as sugar plantations. However, Rochefort also includes a long account of an "Apalacite" kingdom of Indians said to exist in Florida and present- day Georgia, fanciful in its overall picture, but with some basis in fact. Besides this excursion, there is also a brief account of Greenland Eskimos, and one of the illustrations provides perhaps the best contemporary graphic image of both Eskimos and their garb. It is the Caribbean section, however, which is most significant, and therein are found detailed descriptions of the European settlement of the islands and their natural history, in perhaps the most useful single source of the century. Everett Wilkie has published a detailed article concerning this book, which supplies a wealth of detailed discussion of the book, its authors and text. Wilkie, "The authorship and purpose of the HISTOIRE NATURELLE ET MORAL DE ILES ANTILLES, an early Huguenot emigration guide" in HARVARD LIBRARY BULLETIN New Series Vol. 2, No. 3, Fall 1991, pp.26-84, 1666.2.

En plus d'être un des gentilshommes parmi les plus accomplis de son temps, Bassompierre poursuivit deux carrieres brillantes et parallèles sous Henri IV et Louis XIII, militaire et diplomatique.

FIRST EDITION OF THIS EARLY WORK ON CRYPTOGRAPHY AND CIPHERS, AND MORE SPECIFICALLY SECRET WRITING. Noel Malcolm points out that political and religious authorities want to conceal the knowledge of esoteric or secret doctrines in order to control power and stressing the importance of keeping secret one's counsel. –See: “Private and Public Knowledge,” by Noel Malcolm, in Findlen [below], p.305. ¶ Schott (1608-1666) Jesuit, student and assistant of Athanasius Kircher, during the last years of his life he decided to publish the mass of material he had collected on scientific subjects both from his own researches and those of others. He produced in a period of eight years (1658-1666) eleven books. He taught mathematics and physics at Mainz and Würzberg. He “...yearned for the intellectual delights of Rome, and after twenty-five years in Italy he suffered from German winters and had to have his own hypocaust installed...Exhausted, it is said, by overwork on his books, he died in 1666.” - DSB XII, p.211. ¶ “Steganography falls into two branches, linguistic steganography and technical steganography. Only the first is closely related to cryptography. The technical aspect can be covered very quickly: invisible inks have been in use since Pliny's time. Onion juice and milk have proved popular and effective through the ages (turning brown under heat or ultraviolet light).” – Friedrich L. Bauer, Decrypted Secrets: Methods and Maxims of Cryptology, p.8. PROVENANCE: Hedwig & Eberhard Frey. Eberhard Frey (1872-1963) was a German writer and art critic and a collector (and writer about) of bookplates. See: Richard Braungart, Deutsche Exlibris und Andrere Kleingraphik der Gegenwart.

        Vive Jesus: Responses de notre tres-honoree et digne mere Ieanne Françoise Fremiot. Sur les Regles, Constitutions & Coustumier de nostre Ordre de la Visitation Sainte Marie

      Paris: [s.n.], 1665. 12mo (157 x 90 mm). [4], 624, 108 (recte 116) pp. Shoulder notes, woodcut and typographic headpieces, woodcut initials. Ruled in red throughout. Contemporary blind-tooled black goatskin, sides with fillet and roulette border, spine compartments decorated with arabesque and leafy spray tools, comb-marbled endpapers, edges sprinkled dark brown, pair of brass fore-edge clasps and catches, blind-stamped monogram TMA on covers, possibly later (slight scuffing to joints, slight crack to upper joint). Provenance: Convent of the Visitation Sainte Marie in Paris, 18th-century inscription on front flyleaf: Ce livre est du 2ème M[onas]tère de la Visitation Ste-Marie de Paris autresfois rue St. Jacques maintenant rue de Vaugirard No. 112.*** A fine copy of an unusual document in the literature of women's religious orders, containing a commentary on the rules of the Visitation order by its co-founder, Saint Jeanne de Chantal, privately printed for the exclusive use of the nuns of the order. Her remarks consist of actual answers to questions posed to her by the nuns during the first few years of the order's existence. This is the second edition, enlarged with a long and thorough index and with shoulder notes. The first edition, of 1632, was privately printed for the use of the nuns, as explained in a prefatory note to the "Soeurs de la Visitation," signed by Marie-Jacqueline Favre (1591-1637), who had been one of Chantal's companions and who became superior of convents in Lyon and Chambéry. Favre begs the nuns to "keep all copies within our Convents, so that not a single copy is shown to anyone else, no matter who they are." From the provenance of the present copy, references to its use within the text, and the fact that Favre's preface was reprinted without comment, one may deduce that this edition was also printed for convent use. Jeanne-Françoise Frémiot de Rabutin, Baroness of Chantal, lost her husband to an accidental gunshot wound in 1601. Left with four young children, she met Francis de Sales (a fellow aristocrat) in 1604, and he became her spiritual director. In 1610 they founded the Visitation order, establishing a house in Annecy. They envisioned the Visitandines not as a cloistered order, but as a community of women of religious faith who would live in the cloister only during the year of their novitiate, after which they would devote their lives to visiting the sick and the poor. Women of all social classes and conditions were welcomed, including older women, especially widows, the ill and disabled. The Church authorities frowned on such an unorthodox association of activist women, and de Sales had to accept that the Visitandines become a regular cloistered Augustinian order, formally founded in 1618. The present text contains Chantal's detailed explanations of and elaborations on each rule, constitutional clause, or custom of the Visitation order, as set out in the manuscript rules held by each convent, and in the printed Regles de S. Augustin, et Constitutions pour les soeurs religeuses de la Visitation (various editions), and the Petite coutume of the convent of Annecy (editions of 1642, 1702, and 1748). Either her verbal comments were recorded at the time by an interlocutor or auditor, or, more likely, they were written out by Chantal herself (a gifted writer and prolific correspondent). The tone is mostly informal, and one can easily imagine the conversation of the sisters, sitting next to the fire, during their daily récréations, an hour of relaxed talk and conviviality, where even laughter was permitted (as described by Chantal on pp. 168-176). Like the rules themselves, the Responses cover every aspect of convent life: household duties, sleeping arrangements, clothes, meals, retreats, duties of the various offices, proper comportment toward one's fellow nuns, punishment for transgressions, last rites and burial of deceased nuns, the roles and duties of novices, communication between convents, and so on. Among the nitty-gritty that surfaces, rounding out the picture of daily convent life supplied by the drier rules and constitutions, are the following minutiae, selected at random: While the convent is bound to supply clothing to the nuns, new habits will only be provided if larger or smaller sizes are truly needed. The sisters are reminded to accept the necessities of clothing and food with humility, without paying attention to what others receive (pp. 14-15). The habits and outer dress appropriate for each season will be distributed all at once (p. 69). Exclusive friendships are forbidden (pp. 79-80). The nun-gardener, who must rise early in summer, is permitted to take midday naps, and to make up the offices she misses at other times of the day (pp. 388-389). Deaf women are the only disabled women who may not be admitted to the order (as Francis de Sales considered deafness prejudicial to the profit of the soul, p. 98). The rules governing distribution of medicines by the nurses are elucidated (p. 377-8), and the sister in care of laundry is told that yes, she may request help from her fellow nuns to hang the laundry, but where it is to be hung is a delicate decision not to be taken in haste (p. 383). Besides these mundane details, issues of moral import are explored in chapters that provide spiritual guidance and sermon-like admonitions. OCLC locates 3 copies of this edition, of which 2 in the US (DePaul University and UCLA Clark Library); and 3 copies of the 1632 edition, including one at DePaul. Cf. Dompnier and Julia, Visitation et visitandines aux XVIIe et XVIIIe siècles: actes du Colloque d'Annecy, 3-5 juin 1999 (St. Etienne, 2001), passim.
