Bookseller's note : Pacôme, Delorme, frère. fl. 1708. Description Du Plan En Relief De L'Abbaye De La Trappe. Paris, J. Collombat 1708.
Bookseller's note : Large 4to (278 x 212 mm). Frontis., [ii], 83 p. and a folding etched plan of the buildings and grounds of the abbey (520 x 415 mm) and twelve double-page plates of architectural elevations and narrative scenes and one full-page plate (all P. de Rochefort, 1708).
Bookseller's note : Contemporary mottled calf (worn), spine and red morocco label gilt, edges marbled red and blue.
Bookseller's note : Only Edition. Pacôme’s description of the buildings and their paintings and inscriptions accompanied the sixteen-by-fourteen foot relief scale model of the great Cistercian monastery at La Trappe. The Abbot commissioned both the maquette and this text for presentation to Louis XVIII. The plates show exteriors and interiors, scenes of daily life, agriculture, communal meals and the sojourn of the exiled James II of England. Established in 1122, the abbey suffered years of decline before Armand de Rance's (1626-1700) strict reforms in the 1660s. The abbey lent its name to the reform movement, and eventually the Trappists became an independent order. A good copy, early signature of A. Noleau.
