This Italian translation is excessively rare. It contains 114 11., 2 being occupied by the table, and i blank.
It has been stated that the types used in this volume were the same as Niccolo di Lorenzo used in the Vita di Colombini, but it is almost certain from close inspection that it was printed with the same types as the Latin original, or, as seems more probable, with a clearer and sharper fount produced from the same matrices.

Paris, J. Petit, s. d. A very singular work, notwithstanding its piety. One chapter is on "le sacré ventre de la Vierge,” followed by a “ Méditation aux cuisses.". It is not therefore surprising, while he dwells on the sacré ventre, and “ces dignes et precieuses cuisses," that the author says “De ceste fontaine de vie située au jardin de delices spirituelles . procède un fleuve de grace qui arrose toutes les belles vertuenses herbes diceluy jardin.” Another meditation is on the Virgin's dignes flancs.

Madame Guyon was like St. Teresa in her conception of spiritual marriage. Human conjunction was considered improper and debasing, but the extasy of the divine embrace seems to have been sensually identical with
the mundane joys which they deprecated. 17095 (LE ROY (Francois)] LE DIALOGUE DE CONSOLATION ENTRE LAME
