(Old Books, 17th Century Books, Vellum Books, Religion, Christianity, Theology).
Trabaios de Iesus que Compuso el Venerable Padre Fray.
Published 1671, Madrid by Bernardo de Villa-Diego.
420 pages. Text in Spanish.
Attractive antiquarian full vellum binding, spine hand lettered title.
Book is physically about 350 years old and shows some signs of handling and time.
Binding age worn but still appealing, hinges cracked, small holes to vellum, top right corner of front cover and top edge of first section of text block stained with some loss, and joints slightly rubbed but still supple, remains overall very attractive as an object.
Text block paper is at times heavily age toned as typical, internally book remains mostly clean, tight and sound. A book which has been taken care of but may/ does not look like new.
Still attractive on the shelf. Book displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in rather nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws seem easy to overlook or forgive.
Please review photos for more detailed attempt to present this rare 17th century Spanish theological book as it survives.
We often over-describe any flaws that many sellers would not even bother to mention since most people would overlook them as minor and unworthy of comment. Many people tell us the books they receive from us are nicer in person than they appears on the screen. We want you to be clear about what you are buying, so we take numerous photos and try to describe it openly and honestly.
