The title page continues: “Containing an Authentic and Historical Relation of Many Dreadful Persecutions Against the Church of Christ, From the Death of Abel to the Beginning of the Nineteenth Century; Being a Particular Account of all the Martyrs of the Old and New Testaments, and the Ten Great Persecutions Under the Roman Emperors, With the Persecutions Exercised by the Papists in England, and Other Parts of Europe. Including Every Important Relaton in Fox’s Book of Martyrs. And also all the essential Parts of every Work on the Subject which has appeared since that Publication: the whole carefully revised, corrected, and amended; with some original Matter.” Published in 1811. Brown cloth hard covers with gilt titles on the spine. The spine is sunned, it is completely split away from the front board and has bumping and chipping at the top and base. The boards have corner wear, a little surface scuffing, and some gentle fading near the tops and spine edges. The front board and first couple of endpapers are partly detached but still attached to the text block near the top. A number of pages in the first part of the book, up to about p150, have red underlining of the text. One sheet, p127/128 is firmly bound but has edges which extend beyond the main text block, presumed to be a production fault. Pages are tanned, engraving illustrations also have foxing particularly around the margins and on the reverse.
