Very scarce. The present volume contains fifteen of the most creative and fascinating wedding sermons of the 16th and 17th centuries, each with its own half-title of sorts and originally published in two volumes, but here bound together. These have been selected purposefully for their innovation and the unique way they fold together the Gospel and marriage. Superb! Largely in the reformation and puritan vein. 

Conjugal Duty: Parts I & II. Set Forth in a Collection of Ingenious and Delightful Wedding-Sermons.  London. Printed and Sold by J. Watson. 1732 / 1736. 302pp.

Includes: A Discourse on Marriage by Matthew Mead; Husbands Love Your Wives by Philanthropos; A Wedding Sermon by Hugh Latimer; The Looking Glass for Married Folks by Robert Snawsel; A Wedding Ring Fitted to the Finger by W. Crompton; The Wedding Ring by William Secker; Boaz and Ruth by Bartholomew Parsons; The Bride-Woman's Counsellour by John Sprint; A Wife Mistaken; or Leah Instead of Rachel by T.

Very good copy in original plain calf boards, neatly respined, text very crisp and clean with some light general handling. Newer endpapers, I'm sure inserted when respined. A nice example of a very rare volume.
