x + 526pp + Table of Contents 16 pages Illustrations Fullleather Corners bumped Title in gilt but very worn Gilt tooling on edges of boards again very worn. Marble end papers Front hinge weak Allestree, Richard (1621/2Ð1681), Church of England clergyman."Allestree's influence on the late seventeenth-century church may owe less to his preaching or his university lectures than to the series of moral and devotional works initiated by The Whole Duty of Man (1657). The Whole Duty of Man was intended to show Ôthe very meanest readersÕ how Ôto behave themselves so in this world that they may be happy for ever in the nextÕ. This best-selling manual's prescription of morality and effort was balanced by an emphasis on divine grace and devotional practice: the result was sober, orthodox, common-sense advice pitched at the level of ordinary Anglican parishioners. This was an anonymous work and although it rapidly won acclaim among Allestree's peers, its authorship remained a mystery. " [Oxford DNB]. N° de ref. de la librería 53166
