About this Item

Sanders (ca. 1530?81) was a convert to Catholicism following his refusal in 1560 to take the Oath of Supremacy. Having fled England, he lived variously at Rome and Louvain. The present work is "his most influential. . . . Its textual history is complicated. Sander left it unfinished. Only one incomplete manuscript is known, partially annotated by [Robert] Persons [the Jesuit]. The first edition, nominally published in Cologne in 1585, actually appeared from the press of Jean Foigny at Rheims. Its editor, Edward Rishton, reworked at least book 3" (DNB online). The text is a detailed account of the religious troubles in England during the reigns of Henry VIII, Edward VI, Mary Tudor, and Elizabeth I, with => many references to Zwinglianism and Calvinism. At the end is John Hart's anonymous account ("Diarium rerum gestarum in Turri Londinensi") of his imprisonment in the Tower of London, containing also a list of persons imprisoned or executed in the Tower from 1580 to 1584. This is the second edition and the first printing of the work at Rome: It is enlarged with the just-noted "Diarium" and with "other substantial additions by Robert Persons who saw it through the press" (Allison and Rogers). Provenance: Purchased from Ludwig Rosenthal's shop in 2000; in a private collection until 2016. 8vo. [4] ff., 500 pp., [18] ff. Edit16 CNCE 26601; Graesse, Tr?sor de Livres rares et pr?cieux, VI, 262; Allison & Rogers, Contemporary Printed Literature of the English Counter-Reformation, I, 973. Early vellum over pasteboards, raised bands; author and title inked early to spine, and a small, old paper shelf-label to top compartment. Text slightly foxed, two blank margins repaired of old, tear in one leaf repaired. => A nice copy. Bookseller Inventory # 36737
