A very rare survivor; a banned sermon preached by Anglican divine, Samuel Bolde at the height of the second wave of Anglican repression of dissenters [the first being the Ejection at 1662]. The sermon was a simple plea for compassion and charity toward the Huguenot refugees fleeing to England from the brutal murders and martyrdoms of France under the Roman Catholic Church. And yet, because the Huguenots were dissenters, Bolde was brought to trial and ordered to preach three penitential sermons correcting his views. To make matters worse in the eyes of the Anglican Church, he had also preached a sermon defending the godliness of various puritans, calling out as special examples people like Richard Baxter. He was fined and imprisoned and the present sermon banned from distribution. 

No other copies on the market and untraceable at recent auction.
