8vo - 20 x 12.5 cm.; xxiv - 688 pp. Textured dark brown leather over thin and flexible boards with gilt lettering on the spine. Blue linen on the end papers. All text block edges are gilt as issued. The title continued: "To Which Are Added the Lives of Many Saints, a Complete Prayer-Book, and a Description of the Holy Land, With Over 100 Illustrations." This is the second edition of this translation. Originally published in German in 1690, this book has been translated into many languages over the years. This particular volume has some family information written over the three "fill-in" pages. Names mentioned are John Aloysius Zinger, Louis Agnes Motz, their parents and their children, and a full-page description of J. A. Zinger's death in 1903, "he suffered patiently and full of confidence in God". Tipped in note from a former owner, a school sister of Notre Dame, on the recto of the second blank preliminary. The fore edge margins of the pages up to page xxiv have small chips and closed tears as these pages are a tad brittle on that margin. The remainder of the text pages have minor age toning to the external margins and are still quite supple. The externals show mild wear and light rubbing to the corners and spine tips with all the gilt still being quite bright. The front end paper hinge has the beginning of a tear in the gutter on the vero of the free end paper and the back end papers have been professionally repaired in the same place with a linen strip. A clear and removable archival cover has been fitted. A handsome copy of one of the scarcer editions of Goffine's work.
