**THE INVOCATION OF SPIRITS - MS FROM THE COLLECTION OF ROBERT LENKIEWICZ**
Trac. De D[e]õ. U[n]õ. D[i]sp[ut]ã[t]o. Prõals. De Ti[n]io necessitate p[er].priabus et objectd [Including] Epitome Scolastica (sic) de Sacratis In Gre. Sacristis.
[England?] [17th c.?].
8vo, 17cm, 552 p.(wanting p.543-6). Contemporary vellum (small circular loss to upper hinge & along lower edge and scattered spotting to upper board), leather ties (lacking upper tie), recased with 18th century printers waste sewing flaps.
A curious item that formed part of Lot 639 in the May 2007 Lyon & Turnbull Robert O.Lenkiewicz. Lenkiewicz, an eccentric artist and lifelong bibliophile amassed a large collection of antiquarian occult books that were dispersed in sales at Sotheby’s in 2003 and Lyon & Turnbull in Edinburgh 2007.
This work, although continuously paginated, is a fair copy of two works. The first, a disputation on the idea of the unified god is complete and the more significant of the two and the one probably of most interest to Lenkiewicz as it includes sections on predestination, sensory knowledge of god, religious visions and spiritual invocation. The second work, lacking three pages, is a standard bible commentary with reference to Henry VIII, Elizabeth I, Miles Coverdale and others.
