Stated first printing. Book looks new, dust has very minor rubs. Sir Walter Raleigh (1552 (or 1554) 29 October 1618), also spelled Ralegh was an English landed gentleman, writer, poet, soldier, politician, courtier, spy and explorer. Raleigh was born to a Protestant family in Devon, the son of Walter Raleigh and Catherine Champernowne. Little is known of his early life, though he spent some time in Ireland, in Killua Castle, Clonmellon, County Westmeath, taking part in the suppression of rebellions and participating in the Siege of Smerwick. The author Jack Hale Adamson (19181975) was a literary scholar, biographer, teacher, and university administrator. This book was named a "Notable Book of 1969" by the New York Times. He was a Mormon and served as a missionary in Edinburg, Scotland in 1938-39. (Wikipedia) Fully indexed with bibliography.; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 464 pages

8 B.H. A Relation of the Fearful Estate of Francis Spira, after he turned apostate from the protestant faith to popery. Together with the miserable and woful death of several others, wh have been enemies to the Gospel of Christ
London Davies and Booth 1816 First Edition; Various Ephemera Very Good with no dust jacket

Other additions to this book include: A Sketch of the Character of the late John Howard, A Short account of the life of The Rev. Timothy Senier, The life of Dr. Samuel Finley late President of New Jersey College. Among English Puritans, the most common and the most feared of Satan's temptations was the temptation to despair, the loss of hope in one's own salvation. Perhaps the most widely-known example of despair in the sixteenth and seventeenth century was the case of an Italian lawyer Francis Spira. In 1548, Spira converted to Lutheranism and began to spread the Lutheran message to others. Under pressure from the Catholic Church, however, he renounced his Protestant faith. He then became convinced that he was a reprobate, destined for hell. The story of Spira spread throughout Europe, surfacing in sermons and treatises dealing with despair. In England, an account of Spira's case by a first-hand witness, Matteo Gribalde, appeared in 1550. The most influential English account of Spira, however, was written by Nathaniel Bacon in 1638. Bacon's Fearefull Estate of Francis Spira, based on the original Latin records, became an instant best-seller and was reissued ten times in England and eight times in the American colonies in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. For anti-Puritans, Spira's case exemplified the dangers of the Calvinist teachings of predestination and human corruption. Puritans, however, empathized with Spira, seeing Spira's condition as simply an extreme example of the experience of all godly Christians. Rare works. ; 12mo 7" - 7" tall; 80 pages
