Memoir of the Abbé Lacordaire by the Count De Montalembert, First Edition



Memoir of the Abbé Lacordaire by The Count de Montalembert, One of The Forty of The French Academy. London: Richard Bentley, 1863. Morocco and cloth bound first edition hardcover. 311 pp. An antique memoir about Abbé Lacordaire written by his good friend Charles Forbes René de Montalembert. Jean-Baptiste Henri (Abbé) Lacordaire (1802-1861) was a French ecclesiastic, preacher, journalist, theologian and political activist. Along with Montalembert they launched the newspaper "L'Ami de l'Ordre" in 1830, whose motto was "Dieu et la Liberté!" ("God and Freedom!"). In that largely anti-clerical and revolutionary context, the journal sought to synthesize ultramontanism and liberalism to reconcile democratic aspirations and Roman Catholicism. The book is Montalembert's account of their friendship and political relationship. NPT Books a division of N.P. Trent Antiques has a large collection of used and out of print books on art, architecture, decoration and antiques with a focus on 1st editions, signed and limited editions.
