Title: Le Chemin Royal de la Croix, 1679
Author: Benedictus van Haeften; R.P. Didac
Publisher: A Paris, Chez Jean Baptiste Coignard
Condition: Very Good

A late 17th century French translation of Haeften’s Regia via Crucis, the devotional emblem work which was not just used to educate readers on the significance of the Stations of the Cross, but also to inspire an imitation of Christ, and understand the pathway to Paradise.

Of Haefton himself, he was the Provost of Affligem Abbey, and a writer of religious works in general. Regia via Crucis proved to be his most popular work, printed in several dozen editions and in various translations.

This work features full page emblems engraved by Corneille Galle. Each emblem is a different representation of the symbol of the Cross, bearing a different title and quote per engraving.

One volume in 12mo, (18)+ 564+(6) pages

This volume is in very good shape, with rubbing and wear to the binding. There is a closed tear to one of the unnumbered leaves. The corner to page 517 is lacking, omitting some text. There is foxing and staining throughout.
