Traitté qui contient la methode la plus facile et la plus asseurée pour convertir ceux qui se sont separez de l'Eglise.
Sebastien Cramoisy, Paris 1651 - Contemporary full calf binding, 4to. (358 x 250 mm), 9 leaves, pp. 677,1. Boards with borders of double gilt filets. The spine divided in seven compartments by six raised bands with the gilt titles in the second compartment and the other six compartments with gilt tooled lozenges within borders of double gilt fillets. An engraving of the cardinal writing at a table and with putti above his head. A title page with an engraved vignette depicting the coat of arms of the duc de Richelieu. The work divided in four books preceded by an "avertissement" of six pages, the contents of the four books on four pages and the approbation plus an errata list on the last three pages of the preliminary leaves. The first page of the "Avertissement" and the first page of each of the four books illustrated with a woodcut headpiece and a woodcut capital on the first page. Provenance: on the inner frontboard the bookplate of Claude Alexandre Edgard Testu comte de Balincourt has been affixed. The frontispiece cut a bit short at the fore edge. The binding quite worn along the joints and the corners of the boards, however, still solid with strong cords. The paper occasionally a bit browned in varying degrees, but never heavily, yet overall a nice, clean copy. A pleasing copy of a book which is quite rare and seldom found in a first edition with only one sales record in ABPC and only three in AE, the oldest being from 1949.
