What Our Customers Say...
First Edition, Leather Binding
Translated into English by William Bell, a church of England minister who engaged in many of the theological controversies of his day. Bell has faithfully translated le Courayer's work, with a preface regarding the life of the author. Prior owner's inscription to the front pastedown 'Ad Usum Scriptorum Societatis Jesu. Prov. Angl.' A very smart copy of this work. ESTC reference no: T124555. Pierre Francois Le Courayer was a French Catholic author who lived in England for many years. He took refuge in England following his work 'Dissertation sur la Validite des Ordinations des Anglais et sur la Succession des Eveques de L'Eglise Anglicane...' which was an attempt to prove that there had not been a break in line of ordination from te apostles to the English clergy. Le Courayer was a Catholic by his own declaration, despite dissenting from many of its opinions. This publication analyses the doctrine of both the Catholic and Protestant churches.
In a contemporary calf binding. Rebacked, with the original boards preserved. Externally, very smart with just some light shelfwear to the extremities. Bookplate to the front pastedown. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright with just the odd spot.
