The Causes and Cure of the Pestilence or, A Brief Collection of those Provoking Sins, Recorded in the Holy Scriptures, for which the Lord hath Usually sent the Sore destroying Pestilence or Plague among a People. Together with Some Special Spiritual Receipts and Preservatives Against the Further Encrease of this Pestilential Disease
London: London - Unknown, 1665 Book. Good. Half-Leather. 1st Edition. [16] pp 1-255 [1] The first and only edition of Thomas Rosewell's Presbyterian response to the horrors of the 1665 outbreak of the plague in London in which he suggests that the pestilence was God's retribution for the sins of the English ungodly. The octavo volume has been crudely recased in quarter sheep over marbled boards, probably in the eighteenth century, with the original sheep binding cut away and reattached to marbled boards which appear to have been borrowed from another book. Both the marbled boards and leather spine are very worn although an early morocco spine label is retained. Internally the text is complete (A-R8) and extensively browned, especially the first and last few gatherings. A triangle at the lower corner of the title page (half inch along by one inch up foreedge) is nearly detached. Internally the hinges are open. Rosewell's Causes and Cure of the Pestilence is an uncommon work with just one copy recorded at auction in the last thirty years. ESTC R41076.
