CARTHUSIANS. Nova collectio statutorum Ordinis Cartusiensis...Editio Secunda, La Correrie: Laurent Gilibert, 1681. 3 parts in one volume, 4° (250 x 167mm). Woodcut vignette on title, repeated several times in the text, large cul-de-lampe on penultimate page. Contemporary blindstamped calf over wooden boards, probably from the bindery at La Grande Chartreuse (rebacked with most of original spine preserved, lacks clasps). Provenance: E.B. Pusey (book-label). Deschamps, col.366-67, states that this is the first extant book from the first press at La Grande Chartreuse, informing us that in 1680 a certain André Galle arrived from Grenoble charged with printing the monastery's first books; but his attempts came to naught owing to a succession of fires which destroyed his material. Curiously he makes no mention of Laurent Gilibert describing the book as an octavo, and stating also that it is a 'livre fort rare'. Inserted after the title is a Bulla confirmationis statutorum in 4 leaves and dated 1688.
