This is an auction for THE IMITATION OF CHRIST by Thomas a Kempis.

A beautifully made book, published in 1923.

From Wikipedia:

"THE IMITATION OF CHRIST by Thomas a Kempis is a widely read Catholic Christian spiritual book. It was first published anonymously, in Latin, ca. 1418; several other authors have been proposed, but Kempis' authorship is now generally accepted. Imitation of Christ is a writing of the mysticist German-Dutch school of the 14th and 15th centuries and is widely considered one of the greatest manuals of devotion in pre-Reformation Catholic Christianity. Not only Catholics but many Protestants also join in giving it praise. John Wesley and John Newton listed it among the works that influenced them at their conversion. General Gordon carried it with him to the battlefield. It is said Pope John Paul I was reading a copy when he died. The work is a manual of devotion intended to assist the soul with its pursuit of holiness and communion with God. Its sentences are statements, not arguments, and are pitched in the highest key of Christian experience. It was meant for monastics and ascetics. Behind and within all its reflections runs the counsel of self-renunciation. The life of Christ is presented as the highest study possible to a mortal, as Jesus' teachings far excel all the teachings of the saints . . . "
