Condition: Very Good - in Good DJ. DJ slightly ruffled along edges with several small creases and nicks. Faint offset to endpapers otherwise a very well presented copy.

Portraiture frontispiece with other B&W illustrations throughout. This is an account of the years from his birth to the eve of the founding of his “Little Company of Jesus” in 1540. During his lifetime St. Ignatius dictated a kind of record of events between 1521 and 1538 and Father Brodrick has taken what he calls ‘ this very simple moving story’ as the basis of his present book, after supplying two chapters describing the historical, geographical and extraordinarily appealing background of the Basque countryside into which Inigo Loyola was born in 1491.
