Folio, [8], 398 p. : port., a handsome mdoern binding of half-calf with five raised rules to spine and gilt titling, date & decorations to spine - over marbled boards, signed "H. Smith Bookbinder Norwich." The book itself is in fine condition save for the portrait frontipiece which is restored and remounted. The verso of the title page carries the armorial bookplate of the 2nd Duke of Bedford - a distinguished provenance. This bookplate is dated 1703. A later ownership signature of Joseph Lawrence Miller to title page. John Pearson, Bishop of Chester 1672/1686. English prelate and scholar. He was a royalist chaplain (1645) in the civil war, but during Cromwell's regime he lived quietly in London. His Exposition of the Creed (1659), based on sermons he delivered at St. Clement's, Eastcheap, reveals Pearson's remarkable knowledge, especially of the Church Fathers; with many notes, it has long been a standard work. After the Restoration, Pearson became master of Jesus College, Cambridge (1660), Margaret professor of divinity (1661), master of Trinity College (1662), and bishop of Chester (1673). His Vindiciae epistolarum S. Ignatii (1672), defending the genuineness of the letters of St. Ignatius of Antioch, was later confirmed. Richard Bentley wrote of him as ¿the most excellent Bishop Pearson, the very dust of whose writings is gold.¿ Wing (2nd ed.), P998; ESTC R23232. Codice inventario libreria 27151
