About this Item

First published in 1650, this text begins with a conversation on how one properly converts and ends with a discussion of life after death, but chiefly focuses on the privileges and duties allotted to followers of Christ. Ambrose (1591?1664), a Church of England clergyman and ejected minister, offers surprisingly practical advice and instruction, including a lengthy section promoting meditation and general self-awareness as well as specific sections on how one should conduct oneself as part of a family and society. "Media; the Middle things, in reference to the first and last things," and "Ultima; the Last things, in reference to the first and middle things" each have their own sectional title-pages and pagination. Provenance: From the Colgate Rochester Divinity School (properly deaccessioned). 4to (20.8 cm; 8.25"). [4], xvi, 99, [3], 336, 167, [1] pp. ESTC T223079. Contemporary calf, Cambridge?style binding with raised bands ruled in blind and gilt-lettered leather spine label, covers double framed and panelled in blind; artfully rebacked, binding abraded, some loss of board at corners and edges. Moderately age-toned with the occasional spot or bent corner; title-page damaged and mounted on sheet, front free endpaper with medium tear, a few leaves missing part of bottom margin, one with loss of a few lines of text. Ex-library: bookplates on front pastedown, call numbers on pastedown and title-page verso, embossed stamp on title-page and one leaf of text, light pencilling and inking on endpapers. One annotation on half-title identifying the author, a handful of leaves with inked marginal scribbles. Bookseller Inventory # 36347
