L'Analyse des vertus en abregé.

Description: FIRST (ONLY) EDITION, woodcut device on title, title a little stained, and with a couple of chips to fore-edge, some foxing, worming in the lower margins, [xvi], 358, [10, ads],12mo, mid- to late-19th-century red calf backed boards, spine slightly darkened, corners a bit worn, exposing cloth tips

Publication Details: Paris: [De l'Imprimerie de J. B. Cusson], Jean Guignard, 1698

Notes: An extremely rare (the only copy we can locate is in the BNF), brief, and vigourous, exposition of the virtues according to established religion, heavy on the sins of the flesh. It is in two parts: Vertus Théologales, and Vertus Cardinales. The second part is less intensely religious, and strays into the prudential. The author refers to the work as 'un fruit du Desert', aluding to his solitary retreat.
