Some scans from “The Holy Court in Five Tomes, The First, Treating of Motives, Which should excite men of Quality to Christian Perfection; the Second, Of the Prelate, Soldiers, Sates-men and Lady, The Third, of Maxims of Chritianity against prophanesse, [etc.]”, by Nicholas Caussin, and translated into English some time I think between 1650 and 1660.

There is a hand-written note in my copy:

“This book properly belongeth to Doctor Jaspar ovfrile (?) priest of Limerick who haue bought it for 41s. and 4.d. the first day of August, 1668.”

I in turn bought the book from J. Geoffrey Aspin of Castle Street, Hay-on-Wye, on the England/Wales border, I think in 1989. The text and images are long out of copyright.

A biography of Nicholas Caussin.
