2 Enjelvin, Joseph Prosper SAINTES LARMES
Clermont Imprimerie De Thibaud-Landriot Freres 1850 First Edition Hardcover Near Fine 12mo 
612 pages; Vellum spine over marbled boards with red spine label with gilt lettering. With folding map at rear. Very light scattered foxxing. L'abbe Joseph-Prosper Enjelvin (1795-1861) was a Franciscan who was honorary canon of the cathedral of Clermont, pastor of Pontgibaud; he authored many books during the mid 19th century. The author conceived this book as a sort of mystical garden, in which to cultivate spiritual joy in the midst of this profane world. The first part is a collection of varied religious exercises in the Way of the Cross, preceded by instructions on the benefits of this practice. The second section comprises ascetic commentary on Seven Psalms of Penitence. He admonishes readers to walk often, daily, in the valley of silence and meditation to seek the source of Sacred Tears. When the soul is carried away by the faith, the hope, and the holy, it is like an eagle in the mountains, sitting delightfully on the hills covered with vines and greenery. The map at the rear is titled Plan Geometral du lieu dit Les Baisses, Commune de La Salette Fallavaux. This was the location where an apparition of the Virgin May was reported by two children, Maximin Giraud and Melanie Calvat. The Bishop of Grenoble came to investigate "Notre-Dame de La Salette," and to examine a number of accusations against the visionaries, including the assertion that the apparition was just a young woman named Lamerliere. In 1851, the local bishop of Grenoble declared the apparition to be worthy of belief, there followed examination by the Pope Pius IX. ; Experience the pleasure of reading and appreciating this actual printed item.
