About this Item

First edition, folio, pp. [20], 255, [1], 143, [16]; contemporary full speckled calf, covers ruled in blind, edges of covers with gilt rules, contemporary manuscript paper label on spine, sprinkled edges; minor rubbing; fine. Thomas Morton, at the time Bishop of Coventry and Lichfield, and later of Durham, was much admired by both James I and Charles I. He appears to have been a man of considerable charm, and a kind and enthusiastic patron of deserving scholars. Most of his writings were devoted to exposing the fallacies of Romish doctrines, but the content of his books is perhaps not well indicated by the rather strident tone of some of his titles. "They display great learning and an intimate acquaintance with the arguments of his antagonists. It is no small praise that they exhibit none of the bitterness and scurrility which too commonly disfigure the polemics of the age" (DNB). STC 18189; CBEL I, 1996. Bookseller Inventory # 30180
