London: Printed for H. Brome and H. Marsh; printed by John Brudenell for Henry Brome; Printed by John Cadwel for Henry Broom and Henry Marsh, 1660. Hardcover. 1660 edition, 8vo (16.5 cm), original leather boards with gilt seal of the King (a CR surmounted by a crown), later morocco spine, raised bands, gilt titled, probably late 19th century. (10), 86, 121 (3) 70 pp, with frontispiece. Very good, pages all very good except moderate marginal loss to first page of third book (no loss of text). The Eikon Basilike of Charles I was published within weeks of his beheading in 1649 and went through dozens of editions. The Restoration succeeded in elevating his son to kingship in 1660, and this copy makes liberal use of the devotional text of 1649, with additions that bring it up to date. Several attributions have been made as to its authorship, notably Jeremy Taylor and John Gauden. Wing L2640. Very Good. Very Good. Item #H3541
