Fox's Book of Martyrs: Containing the Lives, Sufferings, & Deaths of the Protestant Martyrs in the Reign of Queen Mary
London: T. Hughes, 1812. Hardcover, good condition. Very scarce edition of this anti-Irish polemic with a dedication to Spencer Perceval (spelt Percival) by the editor presumably just before his assassination in 1812. Particularly gruesome plates throughout depicting the martyrs ends. Incorrect spelling of John Foxe. Contemporary binding half bound in red morocco with marbled boards. Spine is rubbed and worn at the ends with a small split at the top, corners are bumped and nicked and the leading edges are worn. There is some foxing throughout and slight staining here and there but the text and plates remain clear. Previous auction sticker on the rear corner. Undated but c1812. DP. Hardcover. Good. Used.
