About this Item

First edition: This entry in the heated 17th-century debate over paedobaptism offers scholarly analysis of the historical practice of baptism along with theological analysis of the doctrinal implications. Walker, an acclaimed schoolmaster and the author of A Treatise of English Particles, here references Greek and Hebrew texts to support his argument that baptism does not require total immersion; printed shouldernotes offer extended quotations, many in Latin. Provenance: Lower margin of final advertisement leaf with two 17th-century inked ownership inscriptions: "Robt. Fotherby[?] Lincoln," and "Thomas Coninghams Book." 8vo (18.5 cm, 7.25"). [16], 301, [3] pp. Wing (rev. ed.) W417; ESTC R39415. Recent plain grey paper?covered boards, front cover with gilt-stamped leather title-label. Title-page perforation-stamped, also chipped and torn, now neatly mounted; first dedication page with rubber-stamped and inked numerals in lower portion; no other such markings. Pages age-toned; first two leaves with lower inner margins stained, five leaves with upper outer portions crumpled, last two leaves with edges chipped and darkened, a few leaves towards back with sewing loosening.
