About this Item: Pr. by R. Daniel for Thomas Buck, Cambridge, 1640. Second edition, following the first of the previous year: A very popular anti-Catholic (and anti-Jewish as well) account of the crusades, citing the cruel and impious behavior of popes and participants alike as reason for the failure of the conquest of the Holy Land. Fuller, chaplain extraordinary to Charles II, was one of the earliest English historians thus to analyze the crusades as a historical event. The volume opens with an added engraved title-page and also features an oversized, folding map of the region, both signed by William Marshall. The preliminary "Declaration of the Frontispice [sic]," an explanation in verse of the title-page's symbolism, is signed by J.C., i.e., John Cleveland. Folio (27.7 cm, 10.9"). Add. engr. t.-p., [16], 286, [30] pp.; 1 fold. map. ESTC S121254; STC (2nd ed.) 11465; Allibone 643; Wither to Prior 387 (for the first edition, 1639). 19th-century calf with bookbinder's label of F. Brown, Durham; plain style. Covers detached but present. Ex-Pacific School of Religion Library (properly released) with stamps, bookplate, charge pocket, and date due slip. Priced accordingly.
