Religio Medici: Urn Burial and Christian Morals

London: G. Moreton, 1894. Frontispiece portrait, etc. Cloth over boards. Octavo. viii, 210 pages. Very good. Bound in dark blue cloth over boards with gilt-stamped spine titles, dark brown coated endpapers. Slight rubs and a few shallow bumps to extremities, light scattered foxing inside. Prior owner name and date 1894 penned at top fore corner of title page. Endpapers show some splits along inner margins but hinges holding soundly.

Sir Thomas Browne's "Religio Medici" is a very candid self portrait of a 17th-century physician and his views on science and religion. The second work included here is a survey of funerary customs up to Browne's time, occasioned by a discovery of a cache of Anglo Saxon burial urns in Norfolk.
