Foxe's Book of Martyrs / John Foxe

£14.99

Product description

Complete title: The Book of Martyrs : A History of the Persecution of the Protestants. This book was originally published in around 1683 as "the Actes and Moments", and usually known as "Foxe's Book of Martyrs". The date of this edition is unknown , but believed to be around 1890 (judging from the list of uniform titles advertised at the back of the book), and was published by W. Nicholson & Sons. This copy is in very good condition for its age. The cover is blue cloth with gild embossed title on the front and spine. The front and back covers are bright, but a little darkened near the edges, and have some corner wear (see scans). The spine is faded, has marked wear at the ends and a crease along the middle, but is in very good condition overall. The previous owner's name and address has been inked on the inside of the front cover. The binding is loose inside the front cover and between pages 176 and 177, but the pages are still attached. There are a few marks, but in general the pages are in very good condition apart from light spotting at the bottom of some pages.
