"The fourth edition of John Foxe?s famous Book of Martyrs printed by one of the important English printers of the sixteenth century, John Day. The work, begun as a history of the Christian persecutions and dealing chiefly with Wycliffe and Hus, was first published in Latin in 1559 in Basel where Foxe was living in exile during the religious persecutions in Mary?s reign in England. Following her death he returned to England to work on the English edition which John Day published in 1563. Written in lively style and with gruesome illustrations, the folio became an immediate bestseller despite its size. A second edition followed in 1570, a third in 1576, and this, the fourth, in 1583. - The text, on a two-column page, is in black and roman letter. Each title is set in a woodcut compartment and the volume has many large woodcuts and three (of fout) folding woodcuts. The portrait of John Day the printer, dated 1562, in a decorated border with motto and initials LD. appears above the colophon. It is the earliest genuine representation of an English printer. - The binding 1. old calf, rebacked. There are decorated end-papers." -- [from 1973 Dysart Exhibition Catalogue]
