While Dowsing was a sixteenth-century Puritan iconoclast who kept a journal of his various depredations, this 'account of a similar visitation at some later date' which the editors claim 'has recently come into our hands', would appear to be a spoof, a suspicion perhaps strengthened by the dedication (p.3) to Ronald Knox's brother Wilfred Laurence Knox. In printed green wraps. With pseudo-sixteenth-century title and with the long s used throughout: both features being signal warnings against similar attempts at such whimsy. 12 pages, 8vo. Wraps dusty and spotted with rust stains from staple, otherwise in good condition. Subtitled 'in a Visitatione of all ye Parisshe Churches & College Chapells of Cambridge during a Longe Vacation; wch Narration, latelie imprinted in ye Cambridge Review, is here newlie sett forthe & edited'.
