The parson's counsellor, with the law of tithes or tithing. In two books: the first sheweth, the order every parson, vicar, &c. ought to observe in obtaining a spiritual preferment, and what duties are incumbent upon him after the taking the same, and many other things, necessary for every clergy-man to know and observe. The second shews in what manner all sorts of tithes, offerings, mortuaries and other church-duties are to be paid, as well in London as else where, and as well by the canon as common and statute laws, and in what courts and manner they may be recovered, what charges they are subject to, and many other things concerning the same, necessary for clergy-men and all others to know [.]
Middle-Temple ., London printed for Henry Twyford in Vine-Court 1676 - First edition. 8vo., pp. [24] 308 [12]. Title-page with double-printed border. Second leaf recto with woodcut head-piece and initial. Some light soiling and staining but good. Bound in contemporary sheep, rubbed and worn and with some loss, but overall a copy of some charm. Contemporary inscriptions to f.f.e.p. First edition of this important legal guide for priests, to church patronage and to tithes. Sir Simon Degge (c.1612-1703) was a judge and antiquarian. Although the book was printed for a bookseller of the Middle Temple, Degge was of the Inner Temple (disbenched in 1674). Degge includes in appendix a catalogue of monasteries dissolved under Henry VIII. This was important legal information as the church could not charge tithes on the lands of dissolved foundations. A three-page list of "books printed for Henry Twyford", mostly made up of legal titles, is at very end. ESTC R 8884. Wing D 852. [Attributes: First Edition]
