An exemplary copy of the original history of John Knox and the Scottish Reformation housed in a 17th century style paneled calf, original to the binding and likely issued thusly to nod to its earlier original. Very attractive patina; crisp, clean, and sound. Some light foxing on interior and minor abrasions on exterior with negligible split at top of front and rear hinges, now consolidated and waxed.
Includes The Life and Death of John Knox; the History of the Reformation in Scotland beginning in 1422; The Appellation of John Knox from the Cruel and most Unjust Sentence Pronounced against him by the False Bishops and Clergy of Scotland with his Supplication and Exhortation to the Nobility, States, and Commonalty of the same Realm in 1558; The Faithful Admonition made by John Knox, to the True Professors of the Gospel of Christ within the Kingdom of England in 1544; The Copy of a Letter Delivered to Queen Mary, Regent of Scotland from John Knox, Minister of God’s Word in the Year of Our Lord 1556; A Brief Exhortation to England for the Speedy Embracing of Christ’s Gospel Heretofore by the Tyranny of Mary Suppressed and Banished ; etc.
A lovely volume in presentation, substance, and preservation.
