About this Item

John Flavel (1630??91) was a minister of Dartmouth, England, until he was ejected as a nonconformist in 1662. He continued to preach in the area and authored many works of practical piety. This popular work on grieving was first published London, 1674; the first American edition was printed in Boston in 1707 and would have found a ready audience among the Calvinists of New England. This edition, the first to be printed in New Hampshire, exists in two states ? this state has "sold also by the booksellers in Boston" on the title-page. (In addition, there was another 1795 edition printed in Newbury, Vt.) Regularly reprinted into the 19th century, the Token saw editions in Welsh and Gaelic. 12mo (14.7 cm, 6"). 168 pp. ESTC W19733; Evan 28677. On Flavel, see: Dictionary of National Biography. Contemporary quarter sheep over brown paper covered boards, significant loss of paper and of edges of boards. Some shallow chipping, notable soiling, browning, and waterstaining (yet no difficulty reading text). A volume that's been through a good deal, but is probably stable for quite a long while to come.
