Personal Copy of Pilgrim Pastor John Robinson[Anonymous]. The Supplication of Certaine Mass-Priests falsely called Catholikes Directed to the Kings most excellent Maiestie, now this time of Parliament, but scattered in corners, to move mal-contents to mutinie. Published with a Marginall glosse, for the better understanding of the Text, and an answer to the Libellers reasons, for the cleering of all controversies thereof arising. London: William Aspley, 1604.
First edition. Twelvemo. , 50,  pages. With the signature of John Robinson, pastor of the "Pilgrim Fathers" before they left on the Mayflower. Robinson has signed the title-page "Jo: Robinson".
Modern full brown calf binding with a delicate single rule at the perimeter of the boards and titles stamped in gilt on the spine. Light shelf wear to boards and minor straining at the joints. The pages are lightly toned at the edges and there is light foxing scattered throughout. Each leaf bears a holograph number at the upper right corner beginning with 125 on the title-page and ending with 177 on the recto of the terminal leaf. A very good copy of this rare work.
This work is a reply to the Catholic priest John Colleton's Supplication to the Kings Most Excellent Majestie. Catholics had hoped for some détente when James I took the thrown but it was not to be. This is the personal copy of John Robinson, a prominent English pastor and one of the founders of the Congregational Church. Robinson was also a moral leader and pastor to the pilgrims who set sail from England and landed at Plymouth in 1620.
