In the same binding: Jacobus Benignus Bossuet: Doctrinae Catholicae .. expositio, published by Eugenius Henricus Fricx in 1684; 90 pp. In fine condition.
Added: Martinus Becanus. Curious book about the analogies in the New and Old Testaments. Among other things, we read that King Salomon had 70 wives and 300 concubines! Hundreds of theological questions are explained from the perspective of the two testaments, such as the infallibility of the Pope, the celibacy of clergy, Lutherans and Calvinists in comparison to Sadducees, etc. A clear testimony of the Counter Reformation in the 18th century. An almost amusing anthology of late 18th-century theology. Published in Leuven in 1794 by J.F. van Overbeeke, 470 pp; 17 × 15 cm.
Beautiful authentic leather binding and intact paper.
