John Knox's History of the Reformation in Scotland [2 Volumes, 1949]

£50.00

Product description

Published in 1949 by Thomas Nelson & Sons.

Edited by William Croft Dickinson. Includes an Introduction, a description of Knox, with a biographical note. Page notes, and a long and full index in Volume II.

Fully annotated edition of John Knox's classic History of the Reformation in Scotland. Knox, a key figure in the international Reformation and the establishment of the Protestant Church in Scotland, began this work as a defence of the revolutionary stage of the Scottish Reformation (1558-60), and extended it to include accounts of earlier Scottish reformers and the personal rule of Mary Queen of Scots (1561-1567).

The 'History' is the premier contemporary narrative account of the Scottish Reformation and key to any study of the period. Its value is enhanced by Knox's inclusion of documentary sources (many of which are otherwise unrecorded), and its scope benefits from Knox's experience as a reformer in England, Germany and Switzerland. It is also an important source of information on Knox's career and his relationship with leading figures of his day.

Complete with price-clipped dust jackets, which are rather worn, with tears and small pieces missing. The boards are in good order, no major annotations, although there are a few pencil notes on the end papers indicating this is a 2 volume set. There are foxing spots on the cut-edges of the pages, however the pages are clean with no marks. Bindings sound.
