    More Information:

    Feltham (1602?-68) was a contributor to Jonson's Jonsonus Viribius and an avid Royalist: he called Charles I "Christ the Second."  This work is a series of moral essays written when the precocious Feltham was 18 years old.  "The eighth edition of 1661, (of which this is a reprint) the first in folio, is dedicated to Mary, dowager countess of Thomond, and supplies a thoroughly revised version of the earlier series of essays, many of them being altered, and fifteen omitted. With them are bound up two dissertations, entitled Something upon Eccles. ii. 11, and Upon St. Luke xiv. 20, which are good examples of the author's style at its best; Lusoria, or Occasional Pieces. With a Taste of some Letters, consisting of thirty-nine poems and two Latin epitaphs; A Brief Character of the Low Countries, first published separately in 1652; and nineteen letters, of which all but one are by Felltham. The author's Latin epitaph on himself concludes the volume." DNB Wing F656.ESTC r3419.  Heltzel, Courtesy, 571 (1634 ed.)
