Wanting the frontispiece called for in some copies of this edition. Some marginal staining, though generally very good. Wing, C685. A reprint of Bayly's account of the Royal conference (originally published in 1649) coupled with the Cartwright's rejoinder, criticising Bayly for "giving a false report favorable to the Catholic Church" (ESTC).
