"Anglicanism, edited by Paul Elmer More and Frank Leslie Cross, fi rst published in 1935, was reprinted in 1951, 1957, and 1962, becoming a standard work.

Th e current controversies over doctrinal and other issues in the worldwide Anglican Communion threatening its unity and eff ectiveness make a reprint edition of the book extremely welcome. Th e richness and diversity of the religious literature of the Church of England in the seventeenth century are more fully revealed in this volume than anywhere else." - W. Brown Patterson

    Autograph letter signed to "my cozen Tunstall," most likely Bishop Cuthbert Tunstall by Rokeby, John

    1537. Rokeby, John (d. 1573). Autograph letter signed to "my cozen Tunstall," most likely Bishop Cuthbert Tunstall (1474-1559). 1 - 1/2pp. N.p., n.d. 223 x 184 mm. Fine apart from light soiling. From ecclesiastical lawyer John Rokeby, who acted as one of Henry VIII's counsel in his divorce from Katharine of Aragon and later served as a member of the Council of the North, a regional administrative body originally established by Richard III and later reinstated by Henry VIII in 1530 as a means of exerting control over England's pro-Catholic northern counties. His correspondent was most likely Bishop Cuthbert Tunstall, who served as president of the Council in 1530 and 1537; Tunstall is best known today as the author of De arte supputandi libri quattuor (1522), the first book published in England devoted exclusively to mathematics. In his letter Rokeby asks Tunstall for a "contribution to enable me to go through with my presant Undertaking . . . I began this Method last yeare but was check'd by ill health & want of the proper Instrument Lond. being too expensive for me & some necessary Cloaths awanting however am now determin'd to goe by sea as soon as possablely I can . . ." Rokeby and Tunstall may have been related, as they were both from the same part of England and Rokeby addressed Tunstall as "cozen.

    The book of common prayer and administration of the sacraments and other rites and ceremonies of the Church according to the use of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America together with the psalter or psalms of David. by Episcopal Church. Book of Common Prayer

    New York: Pr. for the committee [by De Vinne Press], 1893. Folio (37 cm, 14.63"). [14] ff., 566 pp., [1 (tailpiece and publisher's colophon)] f. When the Book of Common Prayer was revised in 1892, a first edition of five impressions (including the "standard edition") was immediately printed by the De Vinne Press. These differed in material and decoration, and this fourth, in folio, on paper, and with Art Nouveau borders designed by Daniel Updike and Bertram Goodhue, was sumptuous. Produced in 525 copies only, for subscribers and for presentation to designated libraries, its glory was exceeded only by that of the one-copy impression done from its same setting but entirely on vellum for the General Convention itself.     The floral borders Updike produced for these pages vary with the season, feast, or service of the Church. For example, Ash Wednesday has a border of hyssop and Easter a border of lilies. The borders vary in richness according to the dignity of the feast or service being celebrated, and many of the borders incorporate scrolls inscribed with Latin quotations from Benedicite Omnia Opera Domini Domino, with a few from elsewhere in the the Prayer Book or the Bible.     Provenance: There is a gift inscription on the front pastedown: "To the Rev. Hugh G.E. Crosby from the Warwick family with gratitude."     Binding: Publisher's vellum over bevelled boards, front cover and spine ornately gilt-stamped and with heavy brass clasps. Gilt-stamped endpapers. The binding and endpapers are in a neo-gothic design by Bertram Goodhue and incorporate the first verse of the Benedicite, as well as employing rose and thistle badges and a rose pattern to denote the English and Scottish origins of the American Episcopal Church. Upper edge gilt, tail and fore-edge deckled.     Affixed to one of the rear fly-leaves is: Updike, Daniel Berkeley. On the decorations of the limited edition of the standard prayer book of MDCCCXCII. New York: Pr. at the De Vinne Press, 1893. 4to (25.5 cm, 10"). [2] ff.          Griffiths, Bibliography of the Book of Common Prayer, 1893.7; Gewirtz, But one Use, 96. Bound as above, corners bumped and vellum variably soil-darkened, rear cover with several long scrapes and front one with a few short and unobtrusive ones; front free endpaper chipped and discolored at points where it "took" pressure from the latches. Paper across hinges (inside) cracked, but binding strongly holding; to text, the odd spot of foxing or light soil only. The leaflet by Updike describing his work here is present, "tabbed" in at top left corner, with some discoloration to backing paper. => A very handsome book in a decent, pleasing, "good used" condition that makes it relatively affordable, with the pamphlet on the decorations.

    Ductor dubitantium, or the rule of conscience in all her generall measures; serving as a great instrument for the determination of cases of conscience. by Taylor, Jeremy

    London: Pr. by James Flesher for Richard Royston, 1660. Folio (32 cm, 12.6"). 2 vols. I: Add. engr. t.-p., [6], xl, 559, [1] pp.; 1 plt. II: [2], 558, [2] pp. First edition: Important philosophical treatise on conscience, casuistry, and Christian ethics, written by the Bishop of Down and Connor. The controversialist Taylor, crowned "the Shakespeare of divines" by Ralph Waldo Emerson, was the subject during his career of a number of accusations of crypto-popery, but the present work — the first of its kind — was designed as a "complete protestant answer to the many Roman Catholic manuals of casuistry" (according to the Oxford DNB online) and intended to provide an authoritative Anglican reference on the subject.     The portrait of the author was engraved by Pierre Lombard, while the added engraved title-page is unsigned. Each of the four books here (in two volumes) has a separate title-page; the main title-pages are printed in black and ruled in red. The text is in English, Greek, and Latin. A printed addenda slip is affixed to the final text page of vol. II, above the catalogue of books sold by Richard Royston. Leaf L6 in vol. II is a cancel (and separated).     Provenance: Vol. I added title-page recto with inked ownership inscription dated 1781 ("T. Moore"); vol. II front fly-leaf with inked ownership inscription dated 1696 ("Guilel. Rayner") and another (of "T. Moore's") dated 1781.          ESTC R20123; Wing (rev. ed.) T324; Allibone 2348. On Taylor, see: Oxford Dictionary of National Biography online. Recent quarter calf and marbled paper–covered sides, leather edges tooled in blind, spine with gilt-stamped title and volume labels and gilt-stamped decorations between raised bands. Ownership inscriptions as above. First few leaves of vol. I (including regular and added title-pages) with tiny spots of worming; slightly larger sections of same to inner margins of some subsequent leaves; a number of pages in both volumes with scattered spots of worming, touching letters but not affecting sense. Light waterstaining to outer margins of some leaves. One leaf in vol. II separated. => Significant and attractive.
