Title: Histoire abregee de l'Eglise, 1844
Author: Charles Francois Lhomond
Publisher: Paris, chez Martial Ardant Freres
Condition: Very Good
A mid 19th century edition of Lhomond’s Abridged history of the church, in which its battles and victories are exposed, in times of persecution, heresy and scandals, and where it is shown that its preservation is a divine work: to serve as a follow-up to the history of religion before Jesus Christ.
This edition is adorned with colorful decorations, designed to emulate the classical gilt work of a cartonnage binding, with blue against gold.
One finely decorated cartonnage volume in 12mo, 296 pages
On note of condition, this volume is in very good shape, with minor rubbing and wear at the boards. There is little to no foxing or staining throughout.
