"[Cooke, Alexander.]"
"A present for a papist: or the life and death of Pope Joan, plainly proving out of the printed properties, and manuscripts of popish writers and others, that a woman called Joan, was really Pope of Rome; and was there deliver'd of a bastard son in the open street, as she went in solemn procession. By a lover of truth, denying human infallibility"
London: printed for T. D. and are to be siold at the Ship in St. Mary Axe.... 1675. "First edition under this title; small 8vo, pp. [6], 165, [1]; engraved frontispiece; old calf-backed marbled boards, spine partially perished, binding rubbed and stained, joints cracked; to look at the book, a fair copy only but the text block is complete, sound, and clean. Alexander Cooke (1564-1632) was Vicar of Leeds, Yorkshire. This is apparently his first book, first published in 1610 and again in 1625 under the title of Pope Joane: A Dialogue between a Protestant and a Papist, both times in quarto but neither with the frontispiece which appears here for the first time. ESTC locates 10 copies, but only 5 in the US: Folger, Harvard, UCLA, Illinois, and Yale. OCLC adds the Morgan. Wing P-3244; CD-Wing C5996B."
