A very attractively bound French-language edition of the Imitation of Christ, the supreme Catholic popular devotional work.

Mainly composed of aphorisms and maxims advocating humility, resignation and abnegation, this work has known the greatest number of impressions, after the Bible. "This little book never left me, in summer in my pocket, in winter in my sleeve. I knew almost all the chapters by heart" (Sainte-Thérèse de Lisieux).
