[52], 387, [1] pp. (some misnumbering.) Modern 1/4 calf over marbled boards, in period style.

General Baptist preacher. He wrote several works, but the present work would create for him a number of adversaries such as Obadiah Wills, Richard Blinman, and Richard Baxter. Facing unfavorable circumstances due to a royal proclamation, Danvers escaped to the Dutch Republic where he would remain until his death in 1687. [ESTC R9922]
