    First Latin edition of this polemic, originally published in French in 1610 under the title "Institution catholique". The author Pierre Coton (1564 - 1626) was a French Jesuit, friend and confessor of the French King Henry IV and his son, who later became King Louis XIII. After the assassination of Henry IV in 1610, Coton was often the victim of polemics and attacks, who blamed the regicide on the Jesuits. His name went down in history in the form of a quip: "The king has cotton in his ears!" Having become, thanks to the protection of Marie de Medici, the confessor of the young Louis XIII, he remained influential until his disgrace, linked to the coup de force of the young king against the Concini in 1617.

    Première édition latine de cette polémique, originellement publiée en français en 1610 sous le titre
    "Institution catholique". L'auteur Pierre Coton (1564 - 1626) était un jésuite français, ami et confesseur du roi français Henri IV et de son fils, qui devint plus tard le roi Louis XIII. Après l'assassinat d'Henri IV en 1610, Coton fut souvent victime de polémiques et d'attaques, qui imputaient le régicide aux Jésuites. Son nom est entré dans l'histoire sous la forme d'une boutade : "Le roi a du coton dans les oreilles !". Devenu, grâce à la protection de Marie de Médicis, le confesseur du jeune Louis XIII, il reste influent jusqu'à sa disgrâce, liée au coup de force du jeune roi contre les Concini en 1617.

    München / Monachii: Leysserius / Apud Cornelium Leysserium, 1631. 3rd Edition of this graphic account of Hell. München : Leysserius / Monachii : Apud Cornelium Leysserium
    Engraved title and 9 full-page engravings in text depicting the torments of the damned in Hell by Philipp Sadeler.

    Contemporary vellum with two brass and vellum clasps to close (one of the clasps is lacking). A quarter (2 cm) of the vellum to the spine is lost, with cracking to the spine edge. Some stains to boards. Ownership inscription on the front end paper and to the title page. Text is in Latin. Text block is clean and presentable. Some offsetting from the engraved plates. The plates appear to have been trimmed quite tightly but with minimal (if any) loss. This third edition seems to be a pocket edition, so that you are able to consult the torments at any time! The plates and typesetting seem to have been slightly re-worked from other (including later) editions by Leysserius. The dedication addresses the apostolic nuncio in Germany, bishop Pier Luigi Carafa (1581-1655), whose arms appear at foot of title. Eight torments are described, commented on and vividly illustrated with fine engravings, i.e. darkness, lamenting, hunger and thirst, stench, fire, excruciating remorse, ill company and desperation. The engraving related to lamenting shows an improbable music sheet with notes and lyrics ( Vae vae vae, ah ah ah ah, heu eheu aeternitas ) of the chant of sorrow sung by the damned.

    Dünnh. II, 1399, 15.3 - "Immensely gruesome and drastic description of the torments of hell..." (Dünnhaupt on first edition in the same year). "Infernus" Together with "De Aeternitate" (1620) and "Caelum" (1635) were conceived as a trilogy. Jeremias Drexel S.J. (also known as Hieremias Drexelius or Drechsel) (1581–1638) was a Jesuit writer of devotional literature and a professor of the humanities and rhetoric. He served for 23 years as court preacher in Munich to Maximilian I, Elector of Bavaria and his wife Elizabeth of Lorraine. He wrote numerous theological works.

    . 3e édition de ce récit graphique de l'enfer. München : Leysserius / Monachii : Apud Cornelium Leysserium
    Titre gravé et 9 gravures à pleine page dans le texte représentant les tourments des damnés en enfer par Philipp Sadeler.

    Vélin de l'époque avec deux fermoirs en laiton et en vélin pour fermer (l'un des fermoirs est manquant). Un quart (2 cm) du vélin du dos est perdu, avec des craquelures sur le bord du dos. Quelques taches sur les planches. Inscription du propriétaire sur la première page de garde et sur la page de titre. Le texte est en latin. Le bloc de texte est propre et présentable. Quelques décalages dans les planches gravées. Les planches semblent avoir été rognées de manière assez serrée mais avec une perte minime (voire inexistante). Cette troisième édition semble être une édition de poche, afin que vous puissiez consulter les tourments à tout moment ! Les planches et la composition semblent avoir été légèrement retravaillées à partir d'autres éditions de Leysserius (y compris les plus tardives). La dédicace s'adresse au nonce apostolique en Allemagne, l'évêque Pier Luigi Carafa (1581-1655), dont les armes figurent en bas du titre. Huit tourments sont décrits, commentés et illustrés par de belles gravures : les ténèbres, les lamentations, la faim et la soif, la puanteur, le feu, les remords atroces, la mauvaise compagnie et le désespoir. La gravure relative aux lamentations montre une improbable partition avec notes et paroles ( Vae vae vae, ah ah ah ah, heu eheu aeternitas ) du chant de douleur entonné par les damnés.

    Dünnh. II, 1399, 15.3 - "Description immensément horrible et drastique des tourments de l'enfer..." (Dünnhaupt sur la première édition de la même année). Avec "De Aeternitate" (1620) et "Caelum" (1635), "Infernus" a été conçu comme une trilogie. Jeremias Drexel S.J. (également connu sous le nom de Hieremias Drexelius ou Drechsel) (1581-1638) était un écrivain jésuite de littérature dévotionnelle et un professeur d'humanités et de rhétorique. Pendant 23 ans, il a été prédicateur à Munich pour Maximilien Ier, électeur de Bavière, et son épouse Élisabeth de Lorraine. Il a écrit de nombreux ouvrages théologiques.
