    First Edition of Fuller's Church-History of Britain

    Thomas Fuller. The Church-History of Britain. From the Birth of Jesus Christ, Until the Year M.DC.XLVIII. London: John Williams, 1655.

    First edition. Folio. [2, blank], [8], 171, [8], 427, [8], 235, [8], 238, [2, blank], [8], 172, 22, [2, blank], [20] pages. With five plates inserted throughout.

    Handsomely bound by Hayday in later full tan calc, covers double-ruled and paneled in gilt, spine tooled, ruled, and lettered in gilt in compartments, five raised bands, gilt board edges and turn-ins, marbled endpapers. Joints a bit tender (with rear joint cracking at bottom), some rubbing, soiling and wear to binding, front and rear blanks and contiguous pages foxed, some toning to text. Still, a very good copy.

    "Quaint and witty, but sensible, pious, candid, and useful; an invaluable body of information to the death of Charles the First" (Bickersteth, Christian Student).

    Wing 2416.
