Historia Jesuitici Ordinis, In Qua De Societatis Esuitarum Autore, Nomine, Gradibus, Incremento, Vita, Votis, Privilegiis, Miraculis, Doctrina, Morte, &c Perspicue Solideq Tractatur
Francofurti ad Moenum, [i.e. Frankfurt]: Excudebat Johannes Spies, 1593. 323pp, [1]. Later paper boards, rubbed and worn. 'E Bibliotheca Oelsneriana' inscribed to verso of FFEP, remains of faint circular institional stamp to verso of title. A large copy with good margins, but with some softening to fore-edge at extremities. Small hole to head of A2, causing loss of a single letter to running title of verso. Discrete paper repairs to base of title and A2. Some worming to lower margin. Occasional ink underlining, else a crisp copy. The first edition of Elias Hasenmuller's history of the Jesuit Order, with an preface by Polykarp Leyser (1552-1610). Hasenmuller's experiences in training as a novice in the Society of Jesus, combined with his conversion to the Lutheran reformed Church in 1587, led to the composition of this critical account. As one of the earliest accounts of the vanguard of the counter-reformation composed by an ex-Jesuit, it was unsurprisingly swiftly translated into the vernacular (Frankfurt, 1594). Adams H 80.. First Edition. Quarto.
