Caroli Bibliotheca, Bayswater (Henry Edward Manning (1808-1892), and Pitts Theology Library, along with and rubber ink stamps on title and elsewhere. Archival folding chemises. Very good. PROVENANCE: Bookplate and ink stamps of "Ex Oblatorum S Caroli. Bibliotheca, Bayswater" with the "humilitas" emblem, being the motto of St. Mary of the Angels Catholic Church in Bayswater. The history of St. Mary of the Angels Catholic Church, was partially influenced by Henry Edward Manning (1808-1892) who was sent there in 1851 by Cardinal Wiseman. Manning's papers are held at the Archives and Manuscripts Department of Pitts Theology Library (see additional bookplate) of Emory University; thus it is presumed that this book could have been Manning's own copy.
