Title: Les nombres traduits en françois: avec l'explication du sens litteral & du sens spiritual, 1686
Author: Gaspard Migeot
Publisher: A Mons, Chez Gaspart Migeot, a l'Enseigne des trois Vertus
A late 17th century translation of the Books of Numbers, otherwise known as the fourth book of the Bible, and that of the Prophet Moses. The fourth book is famously known for its title, as it began with God ordaining the counting of the people of the twelve tribes of Israel.
Interestingly, the endpapers appear to be graph paper, with the front endpaper extensively filled with fine handwriting front and back, likely early-mid 19th century. The front of the first endpaper is a concise table of contents for the Holy Bible itself, with titles for each book, with additional notations listing the four evangelists and others.
The other side of the endpaper appears to be a brief breakdown of history, both ancient and modern.
One finely bound volume in 12mo, (16)+473+(7)
On note of condition, this volume is in fair shape with the binding being worn and chipped away at the edges, with some stress at the joints, and the spine being slightly chipped at each end. There is foxing and staining throughout, with several pages being randomly scrawled on. The fore-edges are also worn.
