[Illustrated book]. Arndt, Johann.

Sechs Buecher vom Wahren Christemthum, welche handeln von heilsamer Busse, herzlicher Reue und Leid ueber die Suende (...) Nebst beigefuegtem Lebenslauf des sel. Herrn Autors (...) nebst dessen Paradiesgaertlein.

B. G. Kurtz'sche Buchhandlung Reutlingen 1847 Octavo, pp/ 848, 216. With 2 engraved, handcolored Frontispieces (the Paradies portion has its own title page with beautiful colored images.) and ca 65 wood engraved full page illustrations (actually "emblems").
Johann Arndt, 1555 - 1621, was a celebrated German Lutheran theologian. The present copy is a lovely Reutlingen imprint of Arndt's famous and frequently printed tract. As much an emblem book as a purely religious title. The emblem images in the text are an interesting nineteenth century interpretation of earlier european Pietism. The two hand-colored title images are quite vivid still.
