The Rev. Norris (1657-1711), rector of Bemerton near Salisbury ("Sarum" as the title-page fashions it), was an Anglican divine, a poet, a Platonist, and a prominent disciple of Malebranche.

Recent boards covered with blue stone pattern marbled paper, dark blue leather spine label. Text browned with foxing and waterstains and brown stains as well. Lacks the imprimatur leaf.
