La maniere de se bien préparer à la mort par des considérations sur la cene, la passion, & la mort de Jesus-Christ; avec de trés-belles estampes emblematiques
George Gallet, Anvers 1700 - (10 1/8 x 8 inches). 63, [1], [20]pp. 42 engraved plates (lettered A-C, and numbered 1-39), after Romeyn de Hooghe. Twentieth century smooth tan calf, spine gilt with raised bands in six compartments, minor spotting Illustrated after the Dutch artist Romeyn de Hooghe. This series of engravings after Romeyn de Hooghe's was first printed for David de la Vigne's Miroir de la bonne mort (Amsterdam or Antwerp, 1673). In the present work, the images are reversed and re-engraved. Each of the plates depict a man contemplating a religious image in order to ease the passing of death. The text provides a commentary and an appropriate verse of scripture for each plate. The present French edition is bound with, as issued, the Dutch translation of David de La Vigne's aforementioned work, containing short Biblical quotations and explanatory notes for each plate.
