It was on all sides hotly attacked" (Encyclopedia Britannica 1911, Vol. 16, p. 355).Some soiling and age-toning to binding. Gilt lettered leather label rubbed, thus affecting lettering.

About the authors: - Jean Le Clerc, also Johannes Clericus (1657-1736), was a Swiss theologian and biblical scholar. He was famous for promoting exegesis, or critical interpretation of the Bible, and was a radical of his age. He parted with Calvinism over his interpretations and left Geneva for that reason. - Henry Hammond (1605-1660) was an English churchman, who supported the Royalist cause during the English Civil War.
