About this Item

Peter Allix (1641?1717) was a Huguenot pastor and theologian noted for his works on theology and Church history: In this work he investigates the origins of the well-known Greek hymn, the Trisagion, i.e., "Holy God, Holy Mighty, Holy Immortal, have mercy on us" that also figures prominently in Western liturgies. Obliged to flee France following the revocation of the edict of Nantes in 1685, he continued his academic writings (now in English) and?using the Anglican liturgy?founded a French church in London. This sole edition is ornamented with a woodcut printer's device and a woodcut headpiece and initial; the text is referenced with sidenotes. Rare: Only two copies traced in the U.S. via OCLC, RLIN, and NUC Pre-1956. Provenance: Bookplate of Virtue & Cahill Library (the library of Portsmouth's Catholic Cathedral) no. 8783, with a large overlaid rubber-stamp thereon starkly, blackly noting the dispersal and eventual sale of the library "following enemy action"?the cathedral having been bombed by the Germans in 1941. 8vo (18.2 cm, 7.125"). 70 pp., [1 (blank)] f. On Allix, see: The Dictionary of National Biography, I, 334?35. 19th- or early 20th-century half calf over marbled paper, spine with gilt title; edges of leather with a dog's tooth roll in blind. Leather rubbed, especially on joints and edges. Some soiling and waterstaining, mostly light and most notable on early leaves, with some small wormholes in the margins; a little fine chipping and some shallow dog-ears. Old inked ownership inscription on title-page, crossed out but still legible. Bookseller Inventory # 10686
