About this Item

Uncommon variant of the first edition, being a "reissue, with cancel title page, of the edition with Richard Davis?s name in imprint" according to ESTC. Hammond was "a celebrated catechism writer" (DNB) and clergyman, called by some the father of English biblical criticism. Cawdrey, a prominent nonconformist, published A Diatribe, against Dr. Hammond on Superstition and Festivals in 1654; the present item was Hammond's response to that attack on three of his early tracts ? including his defense of celebrating Christmas. The dispute between Hammond and Cawdrey lasted four years and produced several publications on both sides. This variant is less common than the Davis imprint of the same year; WorldCat and ESTC locate only six U.S. holdings, one since deaccessioned. 4to (19.9 cm, 7.75"). [16], 295, [1 (errata)] pp. ESTC R202302; Wing (rev. ed.) H510. On Hammond, see: Oxford Dictionary of National Biography online. Recent marbled paper?covered boards, spine with gilt-stamped leather title-label. Lower (closed) edges institutionally rubber-stamped (no other markings). A few small corrections inked in an early hand. A nice copy. Bookseller Inventory # 25770
