Some Considerations Touching the Style of the H. Scriptures.... Third Edition...

London : For Henry Herriman...1668. 8vo, A-S8, T4, 21 ff, 254 pp, tear in D8 not affecting legibility, cont. calf, later endpapers, front joint cracking, otherwise good.
From internal evidence it would appear that the tear in D8 is a paper flaw, already present before binding.
“The Style of the Scriptures, the first of his devotional works, is a remarkable forerunner of modern higher criticism which is said to have begun nearly a century later with Astruc (1753). Boyle compares the Gospels in truly scientific fashion, commenting of various incongruities but emphasizing their essential harmony” - Fulton
