About this Item: Printed by R D forJohn Williams, London, 1652. Full-Leather. Condition: Fair. William Marshall (illustrator). A fair copy of Thomas Fuller's Historie of the Holy Warre, bound with his Holy State and Profane State. Classed as 'fair' because the binding has wear and the Holy Warre has a very old replacement title page and lacks the 'declaration of the frontispiece'. With folding map, decorative frontispiece/title page, and 20 engraved portraits and decorative initial capitals. The full leather binding has contemporary calf boards which have reinforced and repaired corners to the front board, and worn corners and edges to the back board. A new spine was added, probably in the 1800's and this is worn with some splitting to spine joints - particularly at the front. Internally there is a bookplate of Chelsea Public Libraries to the front pastedown with a note that this book was donated by Mrs Rutson. Contents: folding map (some repair); decorative frontispiece/title page (with browning, some dog-earing, and trimming); hand-drawn replica title page - including a very good drawing of the crown - which assumes that the edition is the 3rd edition - when it is probably 4th; text in 5 books - 286pp (browning to some sections, p207 with wrinkled edges; some spotting in Bk V); Preface to the Chronologie 1p; Table 20pp; Catalogue of authors 2pp; table index 6pp; Finis. Blank leaf. Decorative title page - The Holy State 1648; further title page - 3rd edition 1652; To the Reader 2pp; Index 2pp; text in 4 books with 17 engraved portraits (some damage to side margins with no text loss pp 17-33, Chelsea stamp to bottom margin p100, p122 some spot damage has affected small areas of text); title page 'The Profane State' 1652; text pp 343-510 with 3 engraved portraits (Chelsea stamp in margin p510); Finis (some staining to the bottom page edges of Profane State can be seen in bottom margin from time to time). Overall contents clean and most pages in good nearing very good condition. Seller Inventory # 032020

About this Item: printed by Roger Daniel, and are to be sold by John Williams at the signe of the Crown in Pauls Church-yard, Cambridge, 1648. Full Calf. Condition: Fine. Small Folio: [16], 286, [28, chronological table and index]pp, with additional engraved title page depicting the crusades and folding map of Palestine; [8],189 [124 mis-numbered 104], 200-394,435-510 (pagination is irregular, per ESTC Citation No. R6571, but text is continuous), with additional engraved title-page and 20 engraved portraits. The Profane State has separate title page, dated 1642. Contemporary full calf boards paneled in gilt, spine rebacked in period style with red morocco lettering piece gilt, marbled edges and end papers. A Fine copy, tightly bound, pages fresh and bright, with excellent impressions of the plates; minor marginal staining to first few leaves, repairs to explanatory leaf opposite first frontispiece. Pforzheimer 390 and 92 (for first editions). Lowndes 847 (citing this edition of The Holy State as "best"). Wither to Prior 386 and 387. Wing F2438 and F2444. Allibone, p. 643. The Holy War is the third edition, with re-engraved title page (Pforzheimer). The Holy State is the second edition, enlarged. Based on Fuller's extensive reading in medieval sources, The Holy War is the first modern history of the crusades in English. In his judgment, the Papacy, in waging them, had spent European lives and wealth for nothing more than a faraway plot of land and a few relics. The Holy State and The Profane State, Fuller's celebrated studies in virtue and vice-"the most popular and characteristic of all his books" (ODNB)-provides rule of conduct, offering as exemplars a rich collection of model characters, along with short biographies of historical figures from Queen Elizabeth and Sir Francis Drake to St. Augustine and Joan of Arc. Allibone calls it, "Perhaps . . . the best of his works; and certainly [it] displays to better advantage than any his original and vigorous powers of thinking." Note: With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed. Seller Inventory # BB1114

In 1639, the university press at Cambridge published Thomas Fuller's Historie of the Holy Warre, the first modern full-length account of the crusades in English, based on Fuller's extensive reading in medieval sources. He was sharply critical of the papacy for promoting the Holy Land wars and perspicacious in his analysis of the reasons the movement failed. This is the second edition of that momentous work, published one year later. "Intricate engraved title showing Saladin, Death, an archangel, bishops and monks, soldiers and cripples, a church and the Temple of Sepulchre, all under the rubric 'We went out full, but return empty.'".
