KB30...xxviii, 878; xv, 687 pp. Frontis plate in each volume. Octavo. Bound in dark red/brown buckram with gilt to the spines. Some normal rubbing and wear at extremities. In both volumes the front board is foreward. Interiors are clean and unmarked. Vol. II is a bit shaken and one leaf is coming loose and has some fore-edge wear as a result. Small piece of the frontis guard tissue still present. Otherwise good. A quite scarce set. Rodriguez was a Spanish Jesuit priest and spiritual writer of renown. His writings -- this book alone -- underline much the ascetical dimension of religious life. Primarily intended for the use of his religious brethren, yet also for the profit and edification of other religious and of laypersons in the world. It avoids the loftier flights of mysticism and is a book of practical instructions on all the virtues which perfect the Christian life, whether lived in the cloister or in the world. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall
