London: Chapman and Hall, 1915. Octavo. Bound in contemporary half red morocco over red cloth boards, gilt ruling to boards, with raised bands, gilt decoration and titles in gilt to spine; top edge gilt, other edges uncut, marbled endpapers. Binding is lightly rubbed, corners bumped. Internally very clean, free from foxing; glue mark to verso of front free endpaper where a bookplate has been removed. Browne was a seventeenth century polymath, whose work covers a huge range of somewhat eclectic topics. The Religio Medici, or Religion of the Physician, was his first work, and provoked both interest and controversy in a society riven by ideological strife. In it, Browne promulgates several mainstays of Protestant theology, such as the justification sola fide, and this made his reputation across Europe. Item #43532
