Historia Anglicana Ecclesiastica a primis genti . includes "Historia Wicleffiana" which was not published separately, and Edmund Campion's "Narration de divortio Henrici VIII".
Duaci : [ either Ex typographia or Sumptibus] Marci Wyon (publisher details not clear because of missing title page). 1622 - Folio sized volume in contemporary full leather binding with six raised spine bands and blind-stamped border rules on front and back; pp. [22], 1-660 (Main text), 661-732 (Historia Wicleffiana Eiusdem Auctoris), 733-740 (Narratio de Divortio Henrici VIII Regis), 741-779 (Catalus Ex Anglico Ioannis Speed Latinus), [1] (Summa Privilegii). Head- and tail- pieces, ornate initial letters and printed marginalia throughout. Errata on verso of final leaf. A few pagination errors: p744/745 and p770/771 omitted and p290, p747 and p777 mis-numbered as 284, 752 and 769 respectively. Binding is very sturdy and surprisingly well-preserved including the joints: the only major flaw to binding is a 5cm split to upper front hinge with a some loss to head of spine; lesser flaws to binding include bumps with light wear to fore-corner tips, a 5 cm surface crack (not split) to upper rear hinge; a small number of ancient worm holes and a few light scuffs to rear board, and front and rear paste-downs are missing. Text block is firm with a few light spots to some leaves, but leaves are generally clean and very clear, and without any inscriptions, annotations, etc; and last leaf has section of lower corner missing, affecting a couple of words of errata paragraph. However the major flaw with this volume is the missing title page and the damaged first leaf where only a remnant of it remains (here the ornate initial letter M and underneath text survives). Apart from the text missing at beginning of front matter, main text and other sections are complete. An wonderful volume, nonetheless, with complete main texts and particularly impressive head and tail-pieces and initial letters. PLEASE NOTE: This is a heavy item and extra towards delivery cost may be requested. An enquiry is recommended - especially for overseas delivery. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
