About this Item

Lyford (1598?1653), "Minister of the Gospel at Sherborn in Dorcetshire," and as the DNB labels him, "nonconformist divine," held => Calvinist views on many things, which stood him well during the English Civil Wars. He steered a middle course his entire life, as for example: "he believed that parliamentarians had acted unlawfully in going to war against the king" (DNB) but he was not a Royalist nor perceived by even the most rabid anti-Royalist as one. So, too, in this publication his explanations are those of one attempting to maintain equidistance from extremes. Here he discusses the absolute need to be an ordained minister to preach, etc., at length, with a shorter closing section on infant baptism (he's for it). Small 4to. [4] ff., 46 pp., [1 (blank)] f. Wing (rev. ed.) L3544; ESTC R24102. Complete copy with the often missing initial and final blank leaves. Removed from a nonce volume; ex-library with 6-digit number stamped on front blank, library name stamped on rear blank, library name perf. stamped on title-page and first page of text, library pencil and ink markings in margins of one leaf. Closely cropped, occasionally costing a catchword or signature mark or part of a side- or shoulder-note. A good copy. Bookseller Inventory # 20313
