A Preface to the B----p of S--r--m's Introduction to the Third Volume of the History of the Reformation of the Church of England [in a bound volume of 16 tracts]
London: John Morphew, 1713. First edition. 56 pp. 8vo. Contemporary speckled calf, remnant of morocco spine label, edges sprinkled. Binding worn with joints and spine cracked, contents toned and foxed throughout, a few headlines trimmed. First edition. 56 pp. 8vo. A sammelband of 16 tracts, including the first edition of Burnet's Introduction to volume 3 of his History of the Reformation as well as Swift's reply (his Preface to B[ishop] of S[a]r[u]m's Introduction). Burnet painted Popery as the deadliest of evils, and suggested that only Whig bishops, such as himself, could resist it. Swift, having switched to the Tory cause just a few years before, "makes the church his real theme [and] abandons impersonation; and if there are some playful fantasies and much sarcasm among his provisions, they are kept subordinate to the dignity of the main essay. Swift writes with a grave, self-conscious intensity …" (Ehrenpreis, Swift II, p. 694). The complete contents of the sammelbands follows: [NEWTON, William].
