Paris Artist - Illuminated Leaves

Published: 22 sept. 2021
Illuminated leaf on vellum from a richly illuminated Book of Hours, lavishly decorated on both sides of the leaf. Two-line historiated initial showing the head and shoulders of a tonsured priest, text surrounded on all sides by a wide border (on both recto and verso) of coloured flowers and strawberries with a large bird in each upper border, and in each outer border a roundel of a scene from the life of St. Alexis. Size of leaf: 196 x 141mm. 20 lines of text in a liturgical gothic hand. Every leaf of this richly decorated manuscript appears to have contained roundels showing scenes from the life of S. Katherine or Alexis (a 15th century mendicant in Syria), obviously of significance to the original owner. In this leaf the roundel on the recto shows St. Alexis addressing his father and that on the verso shows a priest standing in front of a building (captioned “lenire”).

Christian Ethics: or, Divine Morality. Opening the Way to Blessedness, By the Rules of Vertue and Reason

Published: 08 août 2021
577 pages. Contemporary speckled calf, restored at the corners and spine which has an attractive contemporary morocco label. A good copy of the first and only edition of this excessively rare and very important work in mystical theology. It is undoubtedly Traherne's most important work in prose, unlike "Centuries of Meditations" which was left incomplete at his death. Although he did not live to see 'Christian Ethicks' published, dying shortly before, the text for this work is exactly as he intended it. A rare work, published in strict accordance with the author's wishes, by almost the last of the metaphysical poets and one of the greatest English mystics, this also includes seven of Traherne's first published poems.
