The Nonsuch Professor in His Meridian Splendor; or the Singular Actions of Sanctified Christians Laid open in seven Sermons, at Allhallows Church, London-Wall
London, T. Wilkins, ND (c. 1790). Hardcover. pp. xviii, 349. Tall 12mo. Bound in contemporary marbled boards with leather corners. Our copy lacks page xix, being the last page of the Table of Contents. Our copy has been recently re-backed, so that the book may be handled without undue trepidation. The contents are clean and tight, save for occasional pencilled interlineations (easily erased), and there is a bookplate of The Pilgrim's Lodge Library on the front pastedown, and a bookseller's ticket just above ('Ebenezer Palmer, London' - not referenced in Spawn and Kinsella). In all, a good copy. There is only a brief entry for William Secker (d. 1681?) in the DNB: 'divine; preached at Tewksebury and afterwards at All Hallows, London Wall; published sermons.' This title first published in 1660, the next printing being in, or about, 1790. Our copy is most likely the 1790 edition, judging by the type font, layout, and paper used in the book. The name of the printer also accords with the listing in WorldCat for the edition identified by their editors as being published in 1790; although WorldCat calls for a pagination of xix, , 349, .
