Areopagitica, John Milton; Sermon on the Ploughers, Hugh Latimer; & The Schoole of Abuse, Stephen Gosson (English Reprints)

£12.99

Product description

Edited by Edward Arber and published in 1868 by Alex. Murray & Son. Dark green buckram boards with embossed design. Page edges coloured red. Includes three tracts:

Areopagitica (80 pages) is a speech of Mr. John Milton for the Liberty of Unlicenc’d Printing, to the Parlament of England is a 1644 prose polemical tract by the English poet, scholar, and polemical author John Milton opposing licensing and censorship. Areopagitica is among history's most influential and impassioned philosophical defences of the principle of a right to freedom of speech and expression. It is regarded as one of the most eloquent defences of press freedom ever written because many of its expressed principles form the basis for modern justifications of that right.

Sermon on the Ploughers 1549 (40 pages). Hugh Latimer (c. 1487 – 1555) was a Fellow of Clare College, Cambridge, and Bishop of Worcester before the Reformation, and later Church of England chaplain to King Edward VI. In 1555 under Queen Mary he was burned at the stake, becoming one of the three Oxford Martyrs of Anglicanism.

The Schoole of Abuse 1579 & A Short Apologie of the Scholle of Abuse, 1579 (80 pages). Stephen Gosson (April 1554 – 13 February 1624) was an English satirist.

Boards have minor bumping and rubbing, slight rubbing damage to top and bottom of spine. Foxing on end papers. Binding sound and tight.
