THE CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA An International Work of Reference on the Constitution, Doctrine, Discipl (Used)
by Herbermann, Charles G.,[e
Book ID: 10647, 10647
THE CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA An International Work of Reference on the Constitution, Doctrine, Discipline, and History of the Catholic Church. NY: Robert Appleton 1907-1914, 1st edition, 16 large heavy octavo's, half tan calf, end papers marbled, lithographed subscribers page preceding the half title, It is a monument to the study of the Catholic Church, as it was seen in the days of Pious X. 11,600 entries. Hundreds of contributors. I have done a page-by-page comparison of the 1909 "1st Ed" and the 1913, and they are mostly the same though here there are a few extra color lithographs on thicker paper. Ten of these volumes have one or more boards off, six others have been neatly and strongly rebacked. Rare, I've only had a two sets in my career, now I have two at the same time. This set deserves to be restored. The text blocks are in very fine condition and the marbled end papers are wonderfully rich examples of 19th century American papers. A few chips to some spines.

Meaning 'light bearer', Lucifer has, from his earliest origins, been hailed by religious and artistic countercultures as a patron saint of enlightenment -- the essential quality embodying overthrow of ignorance and the inspired process of revelation. Allied to ancient Gnostic cosmological concepti...
The Voynich Manuscript
Yale University Press
Many call the fifteenth-century codex, commonly known as the Voynich Manuscript, the world s most mysterious book. Written in an unknown script by an unknown author, the manuscript has no clearer purpose now than when it was rediscovered in 1912 by rare books dealer Wilfrid Voynich. The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome. The book s language has eluded deciphe...More
