Loggan. Decorative headpieces. A collection of twelve sermons preached upon several occasions by the celebrated English Christian theologian and mathematician Isaac Barrow (1630-1677). In his sermons, considered by many as masterpieces of argumentative eloquence, Barrow avoids controversy and preaches morals. However, he was also a controversial writer of great weight, and that chiefly against the papacy, whose followers, according to his biographer, Abraham Hill, he had seen “militant in England, triumphant in Italy, disguised in France."

Hinges starting. Minor and sporadic foxing to very first and very last leaves. Binding in overall fair, interior in good+ to very good condition. f to vg. Item #42302
