Le Nouveau Testament en Francois, avec des Reflexions Morales. In four volumes
05 - Paris - Andre Pralard, 1696 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A complete and full leather set of this late seventeenth and early eighteenth-century New Testament in French. New Edition. Rather scarce in any condition and particularly pleasing to see in the original binding. 'Le Nouveau Testament en Francois, avec des reflexions morales sur chaque verset, pour en rendre la lecture plus utile, & la meditation plus aisee (nouvelle edition augmente, imprime par L'ordre de Monseigneur L'Evesque et Comte de Chaalons, Pair de France)'. 'The New Testament in French, with moral reflections on each verse, to make the reading more useful, & meditation easier (new expanded edition, printed by order of Bishop L' Evesque and Count of Chaalons, Peer of France)'. Volume I features an engraved frontispiece. Withvignettes to the titlepages and headpieces to several pages. With the armorial bookplate of the Bibliotheca Lindesiana to the front pastedowns of Volumes II-IV. The Bibliotheca Lindesiana noble library is distinguished not only because of the remarkable collection formed, but because its dispersal began ninety-five years ago and it no longer exists. The library's origins may be said to go back to the late sixteenth century with the establishment of the Lindsay family at Balcarres in Fife by Lord Menmuir, whose bibliophilic son David, the first Lord Balcarres, augmented it to a position of distinction among Scottish libraries. Complete in four volumes. Condition: In full speckled calf bindings. Externally, generally smart, lightly rubbed in places. Several joints starting but firm. Some marks to the boards. Internally, firmly bound. Some scattered light foxing. Red wax marks to the front endpapers of Volume I which has caused the front free endpaper to partially stick to the front pastedown. Ink signatures to front free endpapers of Volume II and IV, and first blank of Volume III. Overall: GOOD..
