Electorum Libri III.
Shoults Fb 1619 G
Officina Nivelliana, Sumptibus Sebastiani Cramoisy
The breaking up of monastic and university libraries from the Reformation onwards meant a huge number of books flooding on to an open market. Even more books became available through the dissolution of libraries during the French Revolution, and the Napoleonic Wars. Special Collections has a number of books and manuscripts salvaged from old European libraries, many of which are identified only by inscription, or an occasional stamp. The Antwerp-based Jean-Gaspard Gevaerts (1593-1666) wrote Electorum Libri III in 1619, following the tradition of scholars Justus Lipsius and Philip Rubens, who wrote their own Electorum Libri I (1580), and II (1608). This is a presentation copy from him to the library of the Holy Augustinian Fathers in Antwerp.
