About this Item

[bound with] Bates, William. A short character of that Excellent Divine Mr. David Clarkson, who departed this life the 14th of June, 1686. [London? : s.n., ca 1686]. 8vo. 13, [1] pp. Collection of death speeches or "swan-songs" from Christian martyrs because "they are useful to shame us: They are also useful to prepare us to die, especially a violent death." Arranged alphabetically, the work only goes through the letter "H" and contains stories, varying in length from a short paragraph to several pages, of martyrs from many areas of Europe. The title-page is printed in red and black. Following the work is a biographical sketch of nonconformist clergyman and writer David Clarkson by dissenter William Bates (1625?99). => A mourning border surrounds the title-page of this work, which also offers a skull and crossbones woodcut device. Searches of WorldCat and NUC reveal only one copy of the Bates in the United States, at Duke University; there are several more of the Cloud but not many. Provenance: Ink signature of the Rev. C. Bedford of Denton; later in the library of the Pacific School of Religion. 8vo (16.9 cm; 6.625 "). [14], 258 pp. (lacks pastedowns). On Mall, see: ESTC R20113; Wing (rev. ed.) M330. On Bates, see: ESTC R492575. 17th-century calf, covers framed in blind double-rules, turn-ins unevenly trimmed with pastedowns lacking; rebacked, rubbed with some loss of leather at base of spine, corners, and edges. Ex-library as above: bookplate, rubber-stamp on endpaper and two leaves of text, pencilling on title-page, circulation materials at back. Marked as above, pencilling on endpapers; dust-soiling, some bent/chipped corners and jagged edges, one leaf with two small holes and tear taking part of a printed marginal note, light to moderate age-toning. => For all faults that must be noted, this is a sound, usable copy.
