Sister Mary Philip: with a Preface by the Rev. G. Bliss, S.J.:

A Jesuit at the English Court. The Life of the Venerable Claude de la Colombiere, S.J.

London: Burns Oates & Washbourne, 1922. First edition. viii, 264pp, illustrated. Text very clean and unmarked. The endpapers, prelims and last few pages have a faint tide stain to the lower edge. Front free endpaper has a faint indentation from former pencilled ownership name. In the original red-brown cloth, spine titled in gilt. Firm and clean, slightly mottled, with some darkening to lower edge of boards, extremities slightly blunted. An attractive copy. Very uncommon, perhaps in part due to the subject's later elevation: 'Colombière was beatified by Pope Pius XI on 16 June 1929, and canonized by Pope John Paul II on 31 May 1992.' (Wikipedia). Very Good.
