CHURCH OF ENGLAND; ANTHONY SPARROW, comp. A Collection of Articles, Injunction, Canon, Orders, Ordinances and Constitutions Ecclesiastical, With other Publick Record of the Church of England, Chiefly in the Times of K. Edward VI> Q. Elizabeth, K. James, K. Charles I. Published to Vindicate the Church of England, and to promote Uniformity and Peace in the same. The Second Edition Enlarged. London, Printed for Robert Cutler and Joseph Clarke over against the Globe, and at the Star in Little Britain. 1671. Quarto, 16.7 x 20.5 x 4.2cm. $285.00

This collection was published early on at the Restoration (1st ed. 1661) and here in the second edition 1671. It was part of the Restoration attempt to insure that the Church of England stuck to what at the time was considered their ancient doctrines contra the Puritans. It was published in the same spirit as the Sealed Book of Common Prayer (1662)--"this is what we believe and let us not forget it." In the "Preface to the Reader" the compiler, Anthony Sparrow makes the case that church must maintain its purity in doctrine and discipline, citing the Old Testament & St. Paul. He makes a distinctiong between infallibility and authority in the church, but states based on Deut. 17, "that in doubts the Inferiour were to stand to the decision and sentence of the Priests and the Judge, and yet their judgment was not infallible... This Authority in determining doubts and controversies, the Church hath practised in all Ages, and her constant practice is the best interpreter of her right... From these premises it plainly follows that our dear Mother the Church of England in making these Canons and Articles for determining of controversies in matters of belief, which you may see in the ensuing Collection, did no more than what was both her right and her duty to do, both for the preservation of her peace, and the guidance and conduct of the souls committed to her charge; and what her care hath been in the exercise of this power for the good of her members ever since the Reformation, will evidently to her honour appear by this following Collection, made up not without great care industry of the Publisher... for by the CAnons and Articles following, which were formerly scattered and hard to be seen by every one, now gathered together into a body, it easily appearts to any that will open their eyes and read, that the Reformation of this Church was orderly and Synodical by the Guides and Governours of souls, and confirmed by Supreme Authority, and so in every particular as legal as any Reformation could or ought to be."

Bound in original leather over boards with simple double fillet lines around edges of boards, somtime nicely rebacked and re-cornered in brown morocco with raised bands and gilt title in one spine panel, new endpapers and flyleaves, occasional light foxing but otherwise quite clean. Frontispiece depicts the armorial seals of the 27 bishops. There are a number of separate title pages--most printed within simple decorative borders. There are also a few small woodcut initial letters.
