Rare biography of Albert, Prince-Bishop of Liège, published to mark his canonisation by the Roman Catholic church in 1613. Late twentieth century half burgundy morocco binding over marbled boards, red spine label, all edges gilt, additional modern endpapers bound in. The book has a superbly detailed architectural copper-engraved title page by Jasper Isaac, a full-page engraved portrait by Léonard Gaultier of St Albert standing before the city of Liège which precedes the text and one more plate showing the processional 'Translatio S.Alberti' also by Gaultier. The text is collated and complete. Albert of Louvain was hailed a martyr after his murder in 1192 but it took a further 300 years before he became a saint of the church. Worldcat locates Liège; BN and Harvard only.
