Product description

Walker Revised
A Revision of John Walker's Sufferings of the Clergy during the Grand Rebellion 1642-1660. This edition was published in 1948 by Clarendon Press Oxford.

John Walker's "Sufferings of the clergy during the Grand Rebellion" was published in 1714 to counter Edmund Calamy's attack on the Anglican Church for its ejection of Nonconformists from benefices after the Restoration. As Calamy was committed to Nonconformity, so Walker was committed to Toryism and High Churchmanship and this was a political pamphlet in the style of Swift. It is a survey of the penal measures carried out during the Interregnum against the Church and the universities and also contains personal information about the Anglican clergy. Following his revision of Calamy's account in 1934, A.G.Matthews turned his attention to Walker. He was able to correct and supplement the original volume having had access to parochial records. He added the names of some 1100 clergy to the original list as well as investigating claims that their treatment was harsher than that meted out to the Nonconformists.

The condition is used but good, no noticeable foxing to the pages and there is slight yellowing. Apart from that they are good quality and very strong. Back and front side of the cover is slightly faded on the sides from the sun and there is a some wear to the back. On the spine there is a stain just under the title of the book.
