First edition of this significant posthumously published collection of Andrewes' shorter works, with each of the dozen main divisions marked by its own printed general title. Andrewes is, of course, best honored among present generations for his gifted use of the English language in his sermons and in his role in the translation and editing of the text of the King James Bible.
