8vo - 20.5 x 13 cm.; Volume 1: xxiii - 608 pp. Volume 2: xi - 500 pp. Volume 3: xii - 563 pp. Twenty four page bibliography and and a 41 page index at the back of volume 3. Green cloth over boards with gilt lettering on the spine. First published in 1934/1935, translated from the original French by Joseph Leonard CM and reprinted by the Newman Press in 1952. These three volumes are a companion set to the previously published eight volumes of the saint's correspondence and were the first complete biography of St. Vincent de Paul. All three volumes are illustrated with black and white period reproductions including a frontis in each. The library markings, none of which are external, are a blacked out name on the front free end paper, a stamp on the title page and attachments on the back end papers. The dust jackets are worn on the head and tail edges and the spine tips, and all have very faded spines with the lettering being almost unreadable. Otherwise the interiors are very clean and the bindings are sound.
