About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for The government of the tongue by ALLESTREE, Richard.

Description:

With engraved allegorical frontispiece, woodcut head-pieces and initials. Full green morocco, label and gilt lettering on spine, extremities rubbed. With ownership inscription of Mary Ollyffe on frontispiece. The rare first edition of Allestree's guide to ethical speech, a lesson in morality with a severe regard to the faults and follies of others, and therefore, an improvement upon our own disposition. "Hold your tongue when nothing good can come from the words of criticism and condemnation of them." It is full of moral advice and instruction about correct judgement. Among the many subjects he treats are: the manifold abuse of speech, lying, uncharitable truth, of flattery and boasting and obscene talk. He closes with ten specific "lessons" on how to proceed through one's life while being able to commit to the positive utilization of the general rules of morality as well as their specific (and numerous) exceptions.Allestree (1619-1681), a noted tutor, was later professor of Divinity at Oxford and provost of Eton College. As an ardent royalist, he took up arms for the king, and performed all duties of a common soldier. He was frequently seen holding a musket in one hand and a book in the other. He is noted "as a man of extensive learning, of moderate views, generous and charitable, of a solid and masculine kindness, and of a temper hot, but completely under control" (Encyclopedia Britannica, I, p. 694).

Book Description Dodo Press, United Kingdom, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Richard Allestree or Allestry (1619-1681), was a Royalist churchman and provost of Eton College from 1665. He was born at Uppington in Shropshire. He was educated at Coventry and later at Christ Church, Oxford. Allestree entered as a commoner in 1636, was made a student shortly afterwards, and took the degree of B. A. in 1640 and of M. A. in 1643. In 1642 he joined the king s army, under Sir John Biron. In 1643 he was again on military service, performing all duties of a common soldier and frequently holding his musket in one hand and his book in the other. Allestree voted for the university decree against the Covenant, and, refusing submission to the parliamentary visitors in 1648, he was expelled. In 1663 he was made chaplain to the king and Regius Professor of Divinity. In 1665 Allestree was appointed provost of Eton College, and proved himself a capable administrator. His works include: The Gentleman s Calling (1664), The Privileges of the University of Oxford in Point of Visitation (1674) and The Government of the Tongue (1674).

Book Description ReInk Books, 2017. Softcover. Book Condition: NEW. Reprinted from 1675 edition. Language: eng. NO changes have been made to the original text. This is NOT a retyped or an ocr'd reprint. Illustrations, Index, if any, are included in black and white. Each page is checked manually before printing. As this reprint is from very old book, there could be some missing or flawed pages, but we always try to make the book as complete as possible. Fold-outs, if any, are not part of the book. If the original book was published in multiple volumes then this reprint is of only one volume, not the whole set. This paperback book is SEWN, where the book block is actually sewn (smythe sewn/section sewn) with thread before binding which results in a more durable type of paperback binding. It can also be open wide. The pages will not fall out and will be around for a lot longer than normal paperbacks. This print on demand book is printed on high quality acid-free paper. Original Publisher: Oxford : At the Theater 250 pages. Bookseller Inventory # 452308076
