Scope and Content Note

This bound volume consists of two parts. The first part is titled "Tractatus de habitibus vitiosis [Tract on bad habits]. It is paginated to page 145 and has six unnumbered pages at the end which constitutes the table of contents. Part two is entitled "De Moderandis Animi Perturbationibus" [On moderating the perturbations of the soul]. Like part one it is followed by a table of contents. Part two ends with Laus Deo B.M.V. et B.P.N. Ignatio [Praise be to God, to the Blessed Virgin Mary, and to our Blessed Father Ignatius.] The book is a Roman Catholic manual for directors in catechetical or dialogue form. Since Ignatius was canonized in 1622 the book probably predated that year. It is written in Latin.
