WATCH VIDEO FEATURING THESE LEAVES:
This is a RARE offering for a set of 32 Folio size Black Letter Leaves from the Foxes Acts and Monuments, now called Foxes Book of Martyrs, printed in 1570 by John Daye. It is called "The First Volume of the Ecclesiastical History". These contain THE LIFE AND MARTYRDOM OF THE FAMOUS JOHN BRADFORD! WITH THREE LARGE WOODCUTS!
Measures about 9" X 13" and has some browning and will come with a Certificate of Authenticity. This is from a very well known work of the Christian Persecution that took place up until the end of the 16th Century!! It has been told that there was more persecution in the 20th Century than all the previous Centuries combined. I also have leaves with Woodcuts and specific leaves with well known Biblical Scholars of the early days of Biblical printing/Martyrdom.
PLEASE NOTE: it is recommended that antiquarian cloth leaves be framed with archival (acid free) materials, or if stored (this offers the best protection). Avoiding direct sunlight or fluorescent lighting is highly recommended (avoiding any light is best).
