- 2 vols. in 1. Jean Frederic Bernard & Herman Uitwerf. Rotterdam, Jean Daniel Beman, Amsterdam 1724. Folio. XI+760; (2)+280 pages. With 2 engraved titlevignettes and 2 large engraved head-pieces. Contemporary full calf over wooden boards. With 1 of 2 clasps. Spine richly gilt. The corners of binding are neatly repaired. Headband somewhat worn. * French Geneva version, slightly revised and annotated by the swiss theologian Jéan Frederic Ostervald (1663-1747).He attained a position of such influence that he and his friends J. A. Turretin of Geneva and S. Werenfels of Basel were known as the 'Swiss triumvirate'. His writing won great popularity among French protestants, and were translated into various languages. Before 1723 Ostervald's 'Arguments et Réflexions' had existed only in manuscript, and in an English translation which had been printed in 1716 at the request of his London friends and under the auspices of the Archbishop af Canterbury. The succes obtained by this English book made the Amsterdam printers demand the author's leave to publish the French original. They obtained his permission only by threatening otherwise to have the English version retranslated into French. These 'Arguments et Réflexions' appeared separately in 1723 and again in 1724, accompanying the text of the French Geneva version, which was slightly revised by Ostervald. The 'Reflections' are printed at the end of each chapter. Darlow & Moule 3793. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
