Madrid: Blas Roman, 1778.
Hardcover (Vellum). Very Good. Item #036231
2 volumes, Tomo Primero y Segundo, both in contemporary vellum with a bit of wear at spine ends and scattered discoloration, rear joint on volume 1 weakening internally and front joint on vol 2, scattered light foxing and a few minor damp stains.
Rare Spanish edition (Worldcat shows but 3 copies) of Bossuet's Défense de la Tradition et des Saints Pères, itself uncommon. Bossuet was one of the great orators of any age, a notable prose stylist, and court preacher to Louis XIV (though no doubt his aggressive support of the Divine Right of Kings helped him there).
