About this Item
A sammelband of theological and historical works that, although issued separately, are typically found bound together due to their use as school text-books in the seventeenth century. Being: Moses and Aaron Civil And Ecclesiastical Rites Used by the Ancient Hebrewes Observed and At Large Opened, Romanae Historiae Anthologia and Archaeologiae Libri Tres It is very likely that these three works were bound together as the purpose of a school text-book. There are other examples of various editions of these works bound as one. The fifth edition of 'Moses and Aaron'. The other two works do not have edition statements. Thomas Godwyn penned 'Moses and Aaron' and 'Romanae Historiae Anthologia. 'Moses and Aaron was first published in 1625 and is an analysis of Ecclesiastical Rites used by the Ancient Hebrews. To the rear of this work there is a name of the authors cited in the book. 'Romanae Historiae' is an English exposition of Roman Antiquities. He published this work in 1614 for use by Abingdon School. This and another work by Godwyn were the only school text books on this subject for a century. To the preface Godwyn notes the difficulties he had writing this in the school room. The final work to this sammelband is by Francis Rous. It is a historical work looking at the antiquities of Ancient Greece. It looks at the government, the people, their religions, superstition, sacrifices and much more. This is the scarcer of the three works. Francis Rous was an English politician and Puritan. He wrote many theological and devotional works. In a full calf binding. Rebacked with different contemporary boards laid down. Externally, rubbed to the spine and to the extremities with loss to the spine. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are age toned, with just the odd spots. Final leaf of 'Archaeologie Atticae' has been laid down on a new leaf due to loss at the blank bottom half of the page. Good. Seller Inventory # 655L21
