Historie of the Holy Warre by Thomas Fuller, Second Edition, circa 1640

About

Historie of the Holy Warre, by Thomas Fuller, second edition, circa 1640. Printed by R. Daniel, for Thomas Buck, and are to be sold by John Williams at the sign of the Greyhound in Pauls Church-yard, Cambridge. The calf boards are original with a later gilt lettered spline. The title page depicts the crusades. The rare original folding map of Palestine is present and has not had a later hand coloring. Both the map and title page are signed by William Marshall. The text is generally clean with occasional scattered spotting and soiling to the margins. Overall, a very good copy. Provenance: Inscription to the top of the title page 'Thos Cole est Libor 1703.' In 1639, the University press at Cambridge published Thomas Fuller's Historie of the Holy Warre, the first modern full-length account of the crusades in English, based on Fuller's extensive reading in medieval sources. A very popular anti-Catholic account of the crusades, citing the cruel and impious behaviour of popes and participants alike as reason for the failure of the conquest of the Holy Land. He was sharply critical of the papacy for promoting the Holy Land wars and for his insightful analysis of the reasons the movement failed. This is the second edition of that work and was published one year after the first.
