18669. Willet, Andrew: Synopsis Papismi, that is A General View of Papistrie: Wherein the Whole Mysterie of Iniquitie, and Sum of Antichristian Doctrine is set down, which is maintained this day by the Synagogue of Rome, against the Church of Christ......

London: Printed by John Haviland and are to be sold by John Grimond, 1634. The fifth printing. (42) +1352 + (36) pp. 33 x 22 cm. with its original leather binding, although the boards are detached, but present. The Book is "Divided into five Books or Centuaries, that is, so many hundreds of Popish heresies and errours." Each book/section has a decorated title page. The Fourth Book, unlike the others, is printed by the "Asignes of Thomas Man, Paul Man and Jonah Man London 1634". As a supplement there is printed "Tetrastylon Papisme: that is the Foure Principall Pillars of Papistrie...." and "A Catalogue of Good Works done since the Times of the Gospell". With many decorative capitals, head- and tail-pieces etc. The preface, with a life of Andrew Willet (1562-1621), is by Peter Smith. Prefaces from two earlier editions are included, dedicating the work to Queen Elizabeth and to King James 1, respectively. A work of enormous theological scholarship for the time, with printed quotations in Greek and Latin. A couple of pages have a marginal tear, clean, and not affecting text, and two pages have been transposed. Pages 1053-57 have old marginal and textual annotation, there is a small worm hole in the margins of a few pages, and, towards the end, the printer has misnumbered some pages. The boards need to be re-attached but the print block is absolutely sound and tight, and the seven-panelled spine, with raised bands, is firmly attached, although three and a half panels have lost some leather. Having survived 384 years the book deserves to be professionally tidied up to carry it forward for many years to come. 550.00
