Johann Ristens/ wenig anderer beruemter Reimdichter bestreuet ueber den Gewissenlosen Roschischen Nachdruck hin und wieder verbessert: und mit 46 kuenstlichen Kupferstueken verzieret .. [Two parts in one volume] Frankfurt in Georg Muellers Verlag MDCLXIV [1664]; 12o (c. 5 x 11 cm.); [ii] [xviii], 766, [xviii] pp, with 44 copper-engraved plates, and engraved title-page to Part Two (the pagination is continuous); contemporary binding in dark pink velvet, with traces of a floral pattern, burnished endpapers, and two intricately-worked silver-plated clasps (complete and in full working order), gilt and gauffered edges; covers worn in places, with a few splits, very small brown stain with minute hole on p. 407/8; a very good, very well-preserved copy. A work very popular in its day, offering comfort but also instruction, or comfort usually in the form of instruction, and prayers, for women in whatever situations or tribulations they might experience in a very violent period of German history. It was obviously intended, and used, for devotion and meditation at home rather than in Church. In an informative blog for the University of Pennsylvania Dr Elisabeth Esser Braun, who had donated her copy of the 1708 edtion of this book to the university, refers also to a longer study by Ferdinand van Ingen, "Frauentugend und Tugendexempel . Zum Frauenspiegel des Hieronymus Ortelius und Philip von Zesens Biblischen Frauenportaets", in "Barocker Lust-Spiegel. Studien zur Literatur des Barock", (Amsterdam, 1984). We cannot ascertain whether our edition is the first to contain the additional poems by diverse authors, particularly Johannes Rist [known by some of his contemporaries as "Nordischer Apoll], but the title-page implies it is. The binding, with its 17th century-crafted silver-plated clasps and gauffered edges, is a delightful and uncommon survival. The engravings mostly show women of the Bible, whose lives and example inspire the separate chapters of the text.
