  • A Vindication of the Answer to the Popish Address Presented to the Ministers of the Church of England. by WILLIAMS, John.
    WILLIAMS, John.
    A Vindication of the Answer to the Popish Address Presented to the Ministers of the Church of England. In Reply to a Pamphlet abusively Intituled, A Clear Proof of the Certainty and Usefulness of the Protestant Rule of Faith &C.

    Edition: First Edition

    London: Ric. Chiswell at the Rose and Crown in St Paul's Church Yard: 1688. pamphlet, disbound. Title, text, adverts (for Chiswell). "A Clear Proof" although written as through from a Protestant, was in fact a Catholic work, trying to disprove the certainty of Protestantism. This work is a rebuttal of that work. Apart from a little light foxing in a few places, the text is clean and crisp throughout and well bound together. John Williams (C1633–1709), was a Church of England minister, and later Bishop of Chichester (not to be confused with the Jesuit priest of the same period). He was very anti-Catholic and wrote a large number of pamphlets attacking Rome. He argued that the Popish plot was genuine,…

    Edition: First Edition

    London: Tho. Basset, James Adamson, and Tho. Newborough: 1687. Pamphlet. A contemporary account / bibliography of the tracts and pamphlets published by both sides. Most of these were anonymous, and there are marginalia which name the author in most cases in a contemporary hand. Title, text, errata. The errata has been crossed out, and the corrections listed have been made by hand in the text. Clagett was particularly close friends with his eventual successor at Gray's Inn, William Wake, the future archbishop of Canterbury. Clagett saw through the press Wake's "The present state" while Wake was lying low in Dorchester, leading to its sometimes being erroneously credited to Clagett (including by Wing, who referenced it as C4390).

Clagett was particularly close friends with his eventual successor at Gray's Inn, William Wake, the future archbishop of Canterbury. Clagett saw through the press Wake's "The present state" while Wake was lying low in Dorchester, leading to its sometimes being erroneously credited to Clagett (including by Wing, who referenced it as C4390). The title leaf is detached and a little grubby. The text shows some light staining in places and has some marginal ink notes, the first few leaves are partially detached at the top, everything else is well bound together. Wake, William (1657–1737), became Archbishop of Canterbury. He was originally from Blandford Forum in Dorset, and became a convinced Anglican after spending time in France. He wrote many tracts opposing Catholicism.
    William Clagett (1646–1688) was an English clergyman and pamphleteer, particularly active during the reign of James II, when he was very anti-catholic. 1-40 pp. Wing C4390.

There is marking and staining to the vellum, with a little discolouration. A tiny amount of nicking to the head and tail of the spine. There is a little worm damage to the page lining of the vellum, and a very small amount to the end papers. The text block is not affected by worm. There is a pale stain to the first few pages (inc title) but quite light, and not affecting legibility. Throughout the book, the text block has been somewhat zealously trimmed to the top edge. This has affected a few of the page headers, but not the text. Contemporary owner's name scribbled out to the title page. Some early marginalia in ink scattered throughout. Overall a decent copy. St Vincent Ferrer (1350-1419) was a Spanish Dominican Friar. Known as a missionary. During the great schizm, he supported the Avignon Popes (although later transferred his allegiance). His particular interest was in converting Jews, which he did with a combination of persuasion and persecution. anti-Semitic violence often followed in his wake. He died in 1419 in France and was buried in Vannes Cathedral. The printing press of Filippo and Bernardo Giunti was one of the leading Florence printing houses of the Sixteenth century. They also had printing presses in Venice and Lyon. They were mainly involved in printing Roman Catholic religious texts and music, but they were also effectively the official press of the Grand Dukes of Tuscany. Sermons d'hiver de saint Vincent Ferrier. Vélin souple de l'époque, avec titres manuscrits au dos. Étiquette d'étagère en papier sur le dos (pas de copie de bibliothèque cependant). Vignettage de la page de titre. Initiales historiées partout. Dans l'ensemble, cette œuvre est en très bon état pour son âge. Le vélin n'a pas d'éclats. Deux des quatre attaches en vélin sont présentes. Il y a des marques et des taches sur le vélin, avec une petite décoloration. Une petite quantité d'entailles à la tête et à la queue de la colonne vertébrale. Il y a un peu de vers sur la doublure de la page du vélin et une très petite quantité sur les pages de garde. Le bloc de texte n'est pas affecté par le ver. Il y a une tache pâle sur les premières pages (y compris le titre) mais assez légère et n'affectant pas la lisibilité. Tout au long du livre, le bloc de texte a été coupé avec un peu de zèle jusqu'au bord supérieur. Cela a affecté quelques-uns des en-têtes de page, mais pas le texte. Nom du propriétaire contemporain griffonné sur la page de titre. Quelques premiers marginaux à l'encre éparpillés partout. Dans l'ensemble une copie correcte. St Vincent Ferrer (1350-1419) était un frère dominicain espagnol. Connu comme un missionnaire. Pendant le grand schisme, il soutient les papes d'Avignon (bien qu'il transfère plus tard son allégeance). Son intérêt particulier était de convertir les Juifs, ce qu'il a fait avec une combinaison de persuasion et de persécution. la violence antisémite a souvent suivi dans son sillage. Il mourut en 1419 en France et fut inhumé dans la cathédrale de Vannes. L'imprimerie de Filippo et Bernardo Giunti était l'une des principales imprimeries florentines du XVIe siècle. Ils possédaient également des imprimeries à Venise et à Lyon. Ils étaient principalement impliqués dans l'impression de textes religieux catholiques romains et de musique, mais ils étaient aussi effectivement la presse officielle des grands-ducs de Toscane.
