[R. ALLESTREE] - "The New Whole Duty of Man. Containing the Faith as well as Practice of a Christian: made easy for the Practice of the Present Age, as the Old Whole Duty of Man was design'd for those unhappy Times in which it was written. CLEAN, CRISP COPY IN CONTEMPORARY BINDING"

"W. Bent, [1816]" "Roy. 8vo., with a fine engraved frontispiece, very neat contemporary signature on front free endpaper; contemporary full calf, back with eight double rules in gilt, second compartment with original red leather label lettered in gilt, sprinkled edges, upper hinge cracked (but binding entirely sound) else a remarkably crisp, clean copy. The frontispiece depicts Jesus Christ holding a scroll headed 'The Christian Faith' accompanied by Moses with the Tablets, above these two figures a number of cherubs disport themselves in the sky. The Royalist divine Richard Allestree is generally regarded as the primary, if not sole, author, an attribution first given in Nichols' Anecdotes, ii. 603."
