DETAILS

Three volumes of the work Daniel Neal's work, discussing the history of Puritanism, and its development from the time of the reformation.

Three volumes of an original five volume set. Written by the English born historian, Daniel Neal, this particular work explores the history of Puritanism between the time of the protestant reformation up until 1689. On the publication of the first volume Neal was met with heavy criticism from the clergyman Isaac Maddox who accused the book of being inaccurate and unjust, to whom Neal made no response. The remaining volumes were published over the next 6 years, and were later reworked, after Neal's death, by Dr. Joshua Toulmin who edited the work into 5 volumes. In this new edition Toulmin also included an additional memoir of the author. The frontispiece is a portrait of Daniel Neal, tipped-in to volume I. With two book plates to the front pastedown and endpaper of each volume, from The Presbyterian Historical Society of England, and the the private collection of William Carruthers. Collated, incomplete. With volumes 4 and 5 lacking. This interesting piece of British history explores the changes caused by the reformation, the shift in religion and the subsequent affects throughout the following century.

What Our Customers Say...

 Wow, such fast shipping. You and your team at Rooke Books are the best!

Jay, USA

The books arrived and I love them.

Adrian, UK

 For Christmas, I ordered a set of 200 year old encyclopedias on the history of Great Britain for my wife.  She absolutely loved them.  They were exactly as advertised and she went crazy over their smell.  I believe this has set us on the path of collecting older books and such and I have no doubt we will be repeat customers in the future. Thank you very much for helping me provide my wife a wonderful Christmas gift while I am deployed.

Michael, UK

Fantastic!  You really got it right.  No more having to read between the lines when going over the description of the book's condition.  Photos, how intelligent.  You are doing a beautiful job, a real pleasure to see.
