About this Item

Second edition of the "Unum necessarium," following the first of 1653, followed by the first edition of the "Further Explication." Jeremy Taylor (1613?67), a High Church divine and chaplain to Charles I, was well known as a theologian and one of the school of Caroline Divines who brilliantly systematized Anglican theology in the 17th century. The first of these present works caused him some difficulty, as some of its arguments were widely considered unorthodox and antidoctrinal; the Further Explication was Taylor's attempt to clarify his position. The engraved frontispiece by P. Lombart depicts Jesus in shepherd guise, and is followed by a title-page printed in red and black. An oversized, folding plate shows a contrite heart accompanied by scriptural figures and allegorical images; this is also signed, Lombart. Both works came off the press with incorrect pagination, the latter with apparent page count being thrown significantly off. Provenance: Front pastedown with armorial bookplate of Charles Grave Hudson. 8vo (19 cm, 7.5"). A?Z8Aa?Zz8Aaa4; engr. t.-p., [46], 448, [8], 449?690 (i.e., 746), [6 (index)] pp. (pagination incorrect); 1 fold. plt. ESTC R203751; Wing (rev. ed.) T415. Contemporary speckled calf, framed in blind, spine with gilt-stamped leather title-label; leather cracked over joints and spine. Occasional pencilled bracketing. Bookseller Inventory # 12659
