Printed in two columns, wood engraved initials, a small wood engraving in the text. Full antique leather, ribbed spine, metal clasps, somewhat damaged joint edge and corners. Some foxing on the first pages. Copy ruled in red, exterior margin of folio 321 is somewhat damaged, it doesn’t affect the text. Among his works, this is the one Brother Luis put the most effort. Divided into five parts, this apologetic treatise suggested by the contemplation of nature is his most extensive writing. The first part is a passionate description of the wonders of creation that stops thoroughly and delicately in the minuscule details. His literary eloquence and the thrilling depth of his background focuses in fact on the attention to humble things. With a kind of intimate Franciscan spirit, the seemingly insignificant things are hurt by his expressive tenderness and passionate speech, as when he talks about the webs that spiders weave to hunt their prey. The second and third parts, more doctrinal, respectively set out the excellence of the Christian faith and the mystery of redemption. Brother Luis de Granada offers a magnificent rhetorical prose, and one of the richest qualities of spirituality and religious dynamism, which do him credit as one of the great figures of Spanish asceticism. A distinguished speaker and writer, as early as in his time he was known in all fairness as Spain’s Cicero.’ Ruiza, M., Fernández, T. and Tamaro, E. (2004) Biography of Brother Luis de Granada.
