1 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 
Original imprint .Rebound in marble boards with parchment end papers and a beautiful label for title. Some foxing to uneven cut pages. Also the fearful estate and miserable end of John Chill, The Emperor Julian, Henry of Bullen, Henry the Fourth, The late famous French General Marshal Turenne, Latamus, Bishop Gardiner. 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" - 7½" tall; 80 pages

Signed by author in February 2011 at gun show in Louisville, KY and seller witnessed the signing. Beautiful scarce collectors grade copy of this book. Dust Jacket now in Mylar Protective Cover. An unvarnished and moving memoir of a Marine veteran who fought his way across the Pacific Theater of World War II-whose story is featured in the upcoming HBO(r) series The Pacific This is an eyewitness-and eye-opening-account of some of the most savage and brutal fighting in the war against Japan, told from the perspective of a young Texan who volunteered for the Marine Corps to escape a life as a traveling salesman. R.V. Burgin enlisted at the age of twenty, and with his sharp intelligence and earnest work ethic, climbed the ranks from a green private to a seasoned sergeant. Along the way, he shouldered a rifle as a member of a mortar squad. He saw friends die-and enemies killed. He saw scenes he wanted to forget but never did-from enemy snipers who tied themselves to branches in the highest trees, to ambushes along narrow jungle trails, to the abandoned corpses of hara kiri victims, to the final howling banzai attacks as the Japanese embraced their inevitable defeat. An unforgettable narrative of a young Marine in combat, Islands of the Damned brings to life the hell that was the Pacific War. Rare. ; HBO The Pacific; Photographs; 1.2 x 9.1 x 6.3 Inches; 304 pages; Signed by Author

Signed by Author on Title Page. Dust Jacket now in Mylar Protective Cover. Beautiful scarce collectors grade copy of this book. "Because Lydia didn't have arms or legs, she shelled out three thousand bucks to a washed up middleweight named Cap to give her ex-husband the beating of his life." But the beating turns to murder, and the murder into lust and desperation between Lydia and an underworld clean-up man. Meanwhile, overgrown frat boy car thieves take up cop killing as a side hobby. When these paths cross, a horror show of violence unfolds as they all slide into a hell of their own design, surrounded by the neon and noise of the casino strip on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Violent, vivid, life at hyper-speed. This debut novel from the editor of Plots with Guns is a noir nightmare that asks how much is too much in a relationship, and what is the cost of leaving? Ken Bruen calls it "the darkest song I've ever read". May have dust spotting on top edge from shelf storage over time.; 1 x 8.6 x 5.6 Inches; 184 pages; Signed by Author
