Amst., Michiel de Groot, (1681). 2 works in 1 vol. 12mo. Contemp. vellum. With 2 separate titles. (26), 322, (20); (4), 262, (4) pp.

Two very popular mystical works published together, the first work without date, the second work dated 1681. The "Navolginge Christi" is here in the Protestant translation by Cornelis de Boey, first published in 1644. It is dedicated to the Prince of Orange, and preceeded by the contents, a recommandation by Voetius, note on "papal" expressions and a preface by the translator. With an index at the end. The second work also was translated by Cornelis de Boey and added to the Thomas à Kempis since 1655. It was translated from the Spanish "Spill de la vida religiosa" by Miquel Comolada, first published in 1515. The full Dutch title reads: "Den Schat der Zielen: Waer in den Mensch seer lieflick onderwesen wordt, hoe hy door 't afsterven sijnder sonden, quade lusten en begeerten, verkrijgen mach de volkomen liefde Gods en sijns Naesten: en eyndelijck, de waerachtige saligheyt", the Catholic chapbook version. De Boey's version of "De Imitatione Christi", together with the "Schat der Zielen" became very popular in the Northern Netherlands, but all 17th century editions are rare.
Good, but rather used copy.- (Without frontispieces and plates; binding soiled, loosening in spine; some staining;  old ink annotations on first and last blanks).
Gieles-Plak 272 cf.; Van der Haar, Schatkamer, B 272 (first ed. of 1644 of the first work only); not in De Backer, cf. 2396-2401 (other ed.).
