THE MARROW OF ECCLESIASTICAL HISTORY
Tho. Sawbridge & Will. Birch, London 1675 - Tall 4to, This is "The Second Edition, Corrected and amended". The title continues: "Divided into two parts: the first, containing the life of Our Blessed Lord & Saviour Jesus Christ, with the lives of the ancient fathers, school-men, first-reformers, and modern divines: the second, containing the lives of Christian emperors, kings and soveriegn princes: whereunto are added the lives of inferiour Christians, who have lived in these latter centuries: and lastly, are subjoyned the lives of many of those, who by their vertue and valor obtained the sir-name of Great, divers of which, give much light to sundry places of Scripture, especially to the prophecies concerning the four monarchs: Together With the Lively Effigies of the most eminent of them cut in Copper." With portraits engraved on copper, rubricated first letters, head and tail pieces. A few of the initial portraits have been hand coloured. Some early "copperplate" handwriting on opposite sides of a few of the portraits. This copy lacks the first 24 unpaginated pages containing the title page and introductory remarks. The first numbered leaf (pages 1/2) lacks the top half of the page. The remaining text is complete, except for the last five printed pages of the book. Pagination of our copy: pp. 27, [5], 504, [4], [8], 116, [4], 104, [4], 298. Pages 123 to 126, and 163 to 168 mis-numbered. The margins of some portions of the text have been closely trimmed. Our copy has been freshly re-bound in half leather over green cloth, with matching green leather spine label, with new endpapers; now a very handsome presentation of this scarce and important work.
