1613 Gravissimae Quaestionis de Christianarum Ecclesiarum in Occidentis praesertim partibus
What Our Customers Say...
First Edition, Leather Binding, Very Scarce
With errata tipped in to the final leaf. James Ussher was a Church of Ireland Archbishop of Armagh and Primate of All Ireland. Following his degree, and becoming a Doctor of Divinity, he published this first work. It was dedicated to James I and prompted a published response from his uncle, Richard Stanyhurst. It is intended as a continuation to Bishop Jewel's 'Apologia' which represents an attempt to provide a statement of faith for the Church of England under Elizabeth I. Bookplate to the front pastedown, bearing the motto 'Fide et Fortitudine'. Collated, lacking the frontispiece, which the ESTC cite as the only plate to this work. ESTC reference no: S118953. A very scarce and important work by this noted theologian.
In a later full calf binding. Externally, generally smart with light rubbing to the joints and handling marks to the boards. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are very bright. Small loss to the fore edge of *4, and Pp4. Closed tear to the bottom of fore edge to Aaa1. Light tidemark to the gutter of the first seventeen leaves. Otherwise, just the odd spot.
Very Good Indeed
