Hannover, L.C. Holwein 1710.

8vo. [iv], 243p.

Flush-cut in old wrappers (worn, chipped), spine with early purple paper reinforcement.

Only Edition of the only printed catalog of the large library formed over five decades by the pastor of Hannover’s 14th-century St. Aegidien Church. Lövensen bequeathed his library to the City Council, which installed the books in the church tower for consultation two afternoons a week. In addition to philosophy, history, lexicography and theology, the library contains A REMARKABLE RUN OF NEARLY TWO THOUSAND DISSERTATIONS. Entries provide respondents’ names and the topics defended. I have not located a copy in the U.S. Printed on ferrous paper (browned), last headline trimmed.
