Oxford: E Theatro Sheldoniano 1718 - interleaved, with the interleaves copiously annotated (see below), ink stains on the dedication, pp. [x], 42, [4], 32, 8vo, contemporary half vellum, marbled boards, rubbed, head of spine defective, vellum missing from corners, good Welchman’s ‘main work is his edition of the Thirty-Nine Articles. It was first published in Latin as XXXIX articuli ecclesiae Anglicanae (1713); an English translation from the sixth edition appeared in 1740 as The Thirty-Nine Articles of the Church of England, Illustrated with Notes. The English version proved particularly successful; it was reprinted regularly throughout the eighteenth century and well into the next’ (ODNB). The text is peppered with superscripts to footnotes, either references to Chapter and Verse, or to Welchman’s own notes. On the interleaves here, the texts of Chapter and Verse are copied out in English: no doubt this was a school exercise. The flyleaf has a contemporary ownership inscription of a member of the Higford family, presumably a descendant of Wiilliam Higford (1580/1-1657), the writer on conduct, whose family tradition it was to attend Christ Church, Oxford, a surmise strengthened by the later eighteenth-century inscription of Henry Higford as Rector of Alderton, Glos., the family seat. Later inscription of Jos. Jones of Worcester College. (ESTC T73713)
