What Our Customers Say...
With the original wraps bound in. Bossuet was a French bishop and theologian renowned for his sermons and other addresses. Bossuet is regarded to be one of the best orators and a masterly French stylist. These letters of piety and direction have since been republished under the title 'Spiritual Letters'. They were almost entirely written between 1662-1703. The letters are mostly addressed to Mme Cornuau, Mme Albert de Luynes and Mme de la Maisonfort. To the letters, Bossuet warns of deviations from true faith and the most perfect form of devotion. In the original French. A beautifully bound set of this devotional work.
In a half calf binding with paper covered boards. Externally, very smart with just some minor shelfwear to the joints. Hinges are slightly strained but firm. Binder's stamp to the verso of front endpaper, 'P Claessens Fils'. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are generally bright. Chip to page 293 of volume I. The odd spot.
