Printing Details

First edition, hardback rebound in half-leather by Bayntun of Bath with gilt titling and five raised bands to spine. 21.5 × 14cm, xviii + 163pp.

A study of Saint Teresa of Ávila, also called Saint Teresa of Jesus (28 March 1515—4 October 1582), a Spanish noblewoman with Jewish roots who chose a monastic life in the Roman Catholic church. A Carmelite nun, prominent Spanish mystic, religious reformer, author, theologian of the contemplative life and mental prayer, she earned the rare distinction of being declared a Doctor of the Church over four centuries after her death.


A good reading copy. The leather binding is attractive but a bit rubbed, and there is a lengthy full-page previous owner's inscription opposite the title page. The inner binding is holding though cracked at the title page. The main body of text in good order.
