Petrum & Ioannem Belleros / Hieronymum Verdussium. LEATHER BOUND. B00KLE0EG0 In Latin. 1621 first edition, three parts in one volume, Petrum & Ioannem Belleros [House of Peter and John Beller] / Hieronymum Verdussium [Verduss] (Antwerp, Belgium), 4 5/8 x 7 inches tall x 2 1/4 inches thick full leather bound, gilt lettering and design to spine, marbled endpapers, [22], 636, [4], 183, [39], 127, [1] 1 pp., complete. Recently rebound. Pen notation, minor soiling and fore edge repair to first title page. One interior page with three-inch open tear to fore edge margin, not impacting text. Some pages moderately age-toned. Occasional light stains. A few pages with edge chipping or creasing. Otherwise, a very good copy of a scarce and important set of works for the study of Thomas a Kempis and the Brothers of the Common Life. Three works by three authors, all with separate title pages, all published together in 1621 and all relating to Thomas a Kempis (circa 1380-1471), presumed author of the immortal 'Imitation of Christ.' The works are: (1) 'The Chronicle of Windesheim,' by John Busch, a history of the Augustinian religious order - known as the Brethren of the Common Life - in what is now the Netherlands, of which both Kempis and Busch were contemporaneous members; (2) The Chronicle of Mt. St. Agnes, by Kempis, a history of the monastery, located near Zwolle, in which he served most of his long life as monk, priest, copyist and author; and (3) 'Vindiciae Kempenses,' a work by Jesuit hagiographer Heribert Rosweyde (1569-1629) regarding the dispute about Kempis' authorship of the Imitation, together with two brief biographies of Thomas Kempis (one anonymous and one by Rosweyde) and a biography of Thomas' older brother, John, also a priest/monk in the Brothers of the Common Life, as well as a brief life of Gobelini a Kempis, and finally a one-page, 1617 approbation by De Witte. All three publications, with the the exception of the Chronicle of Mount St. Agnes, which was published by Verduss of Antwerp, are from the celebrated House of Peter and John Beller of Antwerp. Note that this is a heavy book, so additional postage will be required for international or priority orders. ~KMP~ The Brethren of the Common Life was a Roman Catholic pietist religious community founded in the Netherlands in the 14th century by Gerard Groote, formerly a successful and worldly educator who had had a religious experience and preached a life of simple devotion to Jesus Christ. . Very Good. 1621.
