London: Printed for Benjamin Tooke, 1680. First edition. Extracted from a bound volume, with the stitch marks visible. A defense of Protestantism against Catholic usurpation by the English historian and pamphleteer, John Nalson (1638 - 1686). Nalson is noted for claiming that French Cardinal Richelieu fomented rebellion in Ireland and Scotland so that England was preoccupied with internal strife to the detriment of its position in Europe.

Here Nalson calls for vindication of the Church of England clergy falsely accused of being "Popishly affected" in a papal Bull, and lists the names of the clergy to be cleared of the charge.

8vo, [6] pp, 33 pp. Dedication signed "Philirenes", the pseudonym of John Nalson. OCLC: 10796483. Very good condition. Item #25441
