Date of 1649 from ESTC. R206157. Binding: slightly later (but still early) half calf on marbled boards, edges speckled red, spine slightly rubbed, label chipped, hinges a little weak. John Dury was an important figure in the Protestant church, initially seeking its unity, then favoured by Cromwell during his time in power. This rare tract in good condition lays out his arguments on the relationship between clergy, church and state, a problem that can hardly be claimed to have been solved, even today, but one equally well worth studying.
