A translation, according to the subtitle of this work, 'from the High Dutch,' apparently by Anton Wilhelm Bohme (1673-1722), a German Lutheran royal chaplain at St. James's Palace in London known as an author and translator. A copy was said to have been in the library of English poet John Byrom (1692-1763), for whom Tauler was influential (Ward, Sacred Poems of John Byrom, Chetham Society 1895, p.383). A handsome copy of this rare translation. ~LR1~ Johannes Tauler (circa 1300-1361) was a German mystic, a Catholic preacher and a theologian. A disciple of Meister Eckhart, he belonged to the Dominican order. Tauler was known as one of the most important members of the Rhineland Mystics. He promoted a certain neo-platonist dimension in the Dominican spirituality of his time. . Very Good. 1708. First Edition.
