    These volumes present facsimile texts of 16th and 17th century primary sources that, in the words of the editor, 'represent the tremendous complexity and confusion that compelled Early Modern authors to participate in Anglican/dissenter debates over sexuality, marriage and its breakdown'. Thompson presents, with introductions and endnotes, 21 texts, including Henry VIII's A Glasse of the Truthe (1531), Vives' The Office and Duetie of an Husband (1555) and writings by Tyndale, Erasmus and Latimer. No jackets.
