About this Item

Laud's conference with Fisher first saw print when it appeared as an appendix to Dr. White's Replie to Jesuit Fisher's Answers to Certain Questions in 1624, signed by R[ichard B[aily], Laud's chaplain. The first complete, separate edition, first issue (i.e., without the Table) was printed in 1639; the edition offered here is the "third edition revised: with a table annexed." It bears a large, elaborately historiated initial at the beginning of the dedication, showing the result of a duel between two men: One lies slain while the other waves his hand in triumph. The main text is accomplished in roman type with a scattering of italic. The DNB notes that Laud and his enthusiastic patron Charles I saw this work as usefully, conclusively proving "that [Laud's] principles differed widely from those of the Roman catholics" ? in spite of the fact that (for example) his demanded revisions of Scottish church interiors, canons, and prayer books were such as to win him the outraged, contemptuous, north-of-the-Tweed nickname, "the pope of Canterbury." The DNB accurately, felicitously characterizes Laud's system overall as an ultimately doomed attempt to obtain "unity of heart by the imposition of compulsory uniformity of action." Small folio. [12] ff., 253, [1] pp., [7] ff. Wing (rev. ed.) L594; ESTC R3539. On Laud, see: Dictionary of National Biography, XXXII, 185?94. Contemporary speckled calf with a little blind ruling and framing; spine and covers starting to flake, bumped at corners. Front cover nearly off and back joint open; all edges marbled. Small hole affecting text on c4, well repaired; ink-smudges in outer margin of T1. Pp. 7, 148, 149, and 185 misnumbered as 10, 178, 179, and 186, but text is perfectly consecutive.
