Dapper, Olfert
Johann Hofmann, Nurenberg 1688 - 4to. [1] 200 [4] + 400 [8] pp. Bound in leather with gold lettering on spine. Raised bands on spine.

He threw himsel … [Click Below for Full Description]

Back tooled raised. Head cap threadbare. Rubbed together. The description of the country is a satirical allegory Jansénie high metaphorical value, a narrator describes an extraordinary country and the manners of its inhabitants, the country being Jansenism. The process is most effective when the book is modeled on the relationships of the travel time, essentially utopias. The book is undoubtedly one of the strangest criticism which gave rise Jansenism. Firmian Peter (Petrus Firmianus) is the pseudonym of Lisieux father Zechariah, Angel Lambert. Entered the Capuchin order, Zechariah of Lisieux (1582-1660) preached in several major cities and to Louis XIII. It was a mission for 20 years in England.
