The Antiquities of the Anglo-Saxon Church.
Newcastle: Printed by Edward Walker; Keating, Brown, and Keating, London, , 1806. 2 volumes, octavo (211 x 126 mm). Contemporary calf, smooth spines, gilt in compartments, green morocco labels, gilt roll to board edges. Wood-engraved title vignettes by Thomas Bewick, engraved folding map hand-coloured in outline. Headcap of vol. 1 worn, just exposing headband, spines lightly rubbed, front joint of vol. 1 tender, occasional light foxing, still very good, a pleasing set. First edition. John Lingard (1771-1851) was an English Catholic priest, historian, and commentator on Catholic life in the 19th century. Best known for his eight-volume History of England (London, 1819-30), Lingard was one of the final students of the English College in Douai, northern France and wrote a number of works of history and theology. The Antiquities of the Anglo-Saxon Church was his first work and in this Lingard asserted the catholicity of the Anglo-Saxon church in opposition to the prevailing protestant depiction of an independent English church in this era. With the 20th-century bookplates of Robin Lingard, presumably a descendant of the author.
