RÉMOND'S CARMINA ET ORATIONES, 1617, IN DISTINGUISHED AND ELABORATE MOROCCO-GILT ARMORIAL BINDINGEarly 17th-century collection of formal addresses and prayerful poetry, illustrated with woodcut initials and ornamental head- and tailpieces, in distinguished full crushed morocco bearing elaborate armorial gilt decoration.The poet François Rémond was a native of Dijon and a Jesuit professor. This volume, which was first published at least as early as 1606, includes Rémond's speeches, devotional verses-several of which commemorate biblical characters, saints and liturgical occasions-and epigrams addressed to members of the administration of the Collège Royale at La Flèche. This institution, founded by King Henry IV, was "the most prestigious of the colleges which the Jesuits established in France," counting Descartes among its famous students (Oregon State University). The coat of arms encircled by the inscription "G. Du Nozet Arc Sel Vic Leg Avenione" is apparently the crest of Guillaume Du Nozet, Bishop of Seleucia, legate at Avignon and member, from 1613 to 1626, of the Sacra Rota Romana, the supreme ecclesiastical court of appeals (Columbia University).
