About this Item

Abridgment of Gibson's Exposition of Anglican Church Law Grey, Richard [1694-1771], Editor. [Gibson, Edmund (1669-1748)]. A System of English Ecclesiastical Law, Extracted from the Codex Juris Ecclesiastici Anglicani of the Right Reverend the Lord Bishop of London. For the Use of Young Students in the Universities, Who Are Designed for Holy Orders. [London]: Printed by E. and R. Nutt, And R. Gosling, 1732. [xvi], 448, [84] pp. Includes three-page bookseller list. Octavo (7-3/4" x 4-3/4"). Contemporary paneled calf, rebacked in period style with raised bands and lettering piece, hinges mended. Some rubbing and minor scuffing to boards, corners somewhat worn. Early owner signature to front endleaf. Toning to title page, faint dampstaining to margins of rear endleaves, interior otherwise fresh. $350. * Second edition. First published in 1730, this is an abridgment of Gibson's great Codex Juris Ecclesiastici Anglicani (1713) in question-and-answer form. Gibson's work is a comprehensive treatise in two folio volumes. It was therefore too detailed and expensive for most students and clergy. Grey's abridged edition brought Gibson's work to a wider audience. What is more, Grey's edition carefully emphasizes the rights and status of the Anglican church in order to defend it from the claims of non-conformists. Gibson, an English divine and jurist, was chaplain and librarian to the archbishop of Canterbury. He went on to become the Bishop of London. English Short-Title Catalogue T123343.
