Recusant imprint by the English Catholic priest, Devon-born Edward Cary writing under the pseudonym, Adolphus Brontius.

Contemporary speckled calf with later gilt title and date on spine; speckled edges to text block and gilt roll to edges of boards. Binding scuffed but sound, several additional blank leaves at either end of book including the terminal blank as called for. Book label of the Heythrop Library to the first flyleaf with shelfmark; nineteenth century book label and manuscript shelf mark of ‘Rev.d H. Campbell’ to first pastedown, bookseller’s ticket of ‘Coombe... Worcester’ above. A mixture of black letter and Roman type. Scarce in trade - last at auction in 1968, $96.

This text is a defence of the oath of allegiance of 1606 which had been approved by the theologians of the Sorbonne and which most English Catholics accepted, but which was rejected by the Jesuits and condemned by Pope Innocent XI. Cary was a prominent English Catholic during the period around the reign of James II but sank into obscurity afterwards.
