Leslie, Theological Bookseller, London. As is, internally very good. FIRST EDITION of English historian John Strype's biography of Cranmer and presentation of the former archbishop's personal papers. "Strype's biography of the Archbishop, one of his principal works, paints a detailed portrait of Thomas Cranmer as 'the greatest instrument under God of the happy Reformation of the Church of England'" (Ayris & Selwyn, p. ix). "Cranmer's first major biographer, John Strype, gave an eloquent description of him as, 'the first protestant archbishop of this kingdom, and the greatest instrument, under God, of the happy Reformation and of this Church of England: in whose piety, learning, wisdom, conduct, and blood, the foundation of it was laid'" (Hall, p. 2). Cranmer "was a leader of the English Reformation and Archbishop of Canterbury during the reigns of Henry VIII, Edward VI and, for a short time, Mary I. He helped build the case for the annulment of Henry's marriage to Catherine of Aragon, which was one of the causes of the separation of the English Church from union with the Holy See. Along with Thomas Cromwell, he supported the principle of Royal Supremacy, in which the king was considered sovereign over the Church within his realm" (Wiki.pedia).
