About this Item

2 v. (xi, [3], 110 + vi, 152 p.); 18.5 cm. (Catholic library ; 2, 4) Carries Imprimatur. [title continues] seditious and slanderous libel, entitled: "The execution of justice in England." Wherein is declared how unjustly the Protestants do charge Catholics with treason; how untruly they deny their persecution for religion; and how deceitfully they seek to abuse strangers about the cause, greatness, and manner of their sufferings, with divers other matters pertaining to this purpose. With a preface by the Cardinal Archbishop of Westminster [Francis Bourne]. -- `Editor's preface. The text from which this edition is reprinted bears no date, nor place, nor author's name, but is the original edition which appeared in 1584. It has been thought better to modernize the spelling, not only for convenience of reading, but also because it is well known that the printed version by no means coincides with the author's manuscript. Here and there a few changes have been made in the punctuation; but this has been sparingly done, lest the swinging stride of Allen's prose should be hampered. The marginal notes and headings hae been with reluctance omitted; to have added adequate historical notes would have expanded the volumes beyond the designed limits. We are deeply indebted to the Rev. W. Bodkin, S.J., Rector of Stonyhurst, for the loan of the original copy belonging to the Stonyhurst library.' Fair x-l green cloth set, backs heavily abraded.
