Description

Leather Binding

A new edition of this popular work.

'The Whole Duty of Man' is a high church Protestant devotional work, published anonymously towards the end of the Interregnum. 

Modern scholars generally agree that the author was Richard Allestree, published anonymously as it represented a politically dangerous opinion of the time. Allestree was a staunch royalist during this era.

Prior owner's ink inscription to the verso to the front endpaper, 'Elizabeth M. W. Amery, from a sincere well wisher, M. A. E., Oct. 5th 1850.
