Fox, John. The Lives, Sufferings & Deaths, of the Christian Martyrs & Reformers, compiled from Fox's Book of Martyrs, With Original Notes & Reflections on each Life; To which is added an Account of the Bartholomew Massacre in France, and the Great Persecution under Louis the Fourteenth, which Continued till the late Revolution in France. [London]: J. S. Jordan, [1802]. Third Edition, Corrected.

Scuffed leather boards, newly rebacked in calf with black calf title label, board corners repaired, new end papers. 9 x 10 inches, engraved tp, lviii., (2), 434, (4) pp. with 23 leaves of plates.  Text & engravings are in very good condition.  Full calf.  [5165]

The frontispiece is dated April, 1794, and is engraved by W. I. Taylor. The engraved tp is undated, also by Taylor. Both are in old font. Some of the other plates are dated in the 1790's, by various engravers. The 58 pp. Preface is in new font; the text of the book is in old font. This appears to be a new edition using older engraving and text plates, with a new 58 pp. historical introduction.

The WorldCat entry for this suggests a ca. 1805 publication date. It was advertised in the London Star on November 19, 1802, as being issued by J. S. Jordan in 30 weekly parts, "continued till the whole is completed, which will make one handsome Volume in Quarto. With the last Number will be given an engraved Title Page, an allegorical Vignette, a General Index, with Preface and Introduction" - all present in this copy. - the Star reference is found in an Abbey Antiquarian Books catalogue entry.
