About This Item

London: Printed for R. Chilwell at the Rose and Crown in St Paul's Churchyard, and R. Bentley in Russel-Street in Covent-Garden, 1689. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. Sm 4to (20cm). Rebound in later black faux leather, with new endpapers, five raised bands to spine, gilt title, 'Infallible Guide', to cover, and date, 1689. pp. [i], title, [iv], imprimatur, [v-vi], contents, 132. A scarce copy of Hooper's second work, an apologetic in defence of the Anglican Church. Hooper had a more than accomplished academic record, being elected a scholar at St Paul's School, and subsequently granted a King's Scholarship at Westminster School. At Oxford he excelled in mathematics, while also learning good Hebrew and Syriac alongside Greek and Latin. In 1680 he was appointed chaplain to King Charles II. Subsequently made Bishop of Bath and Wells from 1704 to 1727. All of Hooper's works were published anonymously. The text of this states there are three discourses, but the book contains only two discourses; the third was never published. Internally, the text block is clean and bright. Slight darkening to page edges.
