Thomas Merton
THE CHRISTMAS SERMONS OF B. GUERRIC OF IGNY
Abbey of Gethsemani, Gethsemani KY, 1959. INSCRIBED AND SIGNED BY THOMAS MERTON. Original red cloth and gray/white paper-covered boards in fine condition with the original clear tissue wrapper. The fragile wrapper is rarely found and although this one shows wear and tear, it is still scarce and desirable. Inscribed by Merton: "For Warren Auskamp, gratefully + cordially, + with all good wishes" and signed underneath with his monastic name. A translation by Sister Rose of Lima of four sermons by a 12th century Cistercian abbot. Merton wrote a lengthy intrduction, being 25 pages on Blessed Guerric's thought. The work was most likely preapred as a gift book by the abbey. Merton inscriptions are quite scarce and we have never seen a signed copy of this work before. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]
