The text is based on the first editions of 1650 and 1651, and includes textual variants, a full commentary, and a textual introduction.

Industry Reviews

`It is P.G.Stanwood's inestimable service to have readers to appreciate the richness of Taylor's text and of his rhetorical strategies by granting them for the first time full access to Taylor's cultural store. To the benefit of a carefully edited text he adds detailed and comprehensive bibliographical annotation for all Taylors allusions, ...' Christina Malcolmson, Yearbook of English Studies. 'It is a delight ... to see him in his newest dress, tactfully and accurately edited.' Paul Hartle, Country Life 'The publisher and printers have given the volumes an elegance and an accuracy to match the editor's learning.' Geoffrey F. Nuttall, Journal of Ecclesiastical History 'There is much here for which the modern reader has cause to be grateful.' Isabel Rivers, St Hugh's College, Oxford, Notes and Queries, March 1992 'P.G. Stanwood has presented us with a reliable text based upon scrupulous collation of all the editions published during Taylor's lifetime ... Holy Living is in every way an achievement equal to that of Holy Dying; the two treatises are counterparts, each excellent in its kind. We can be grateful to this new edition for increasing our appreciation of a major writer of English prose and a major defender of the potential for good in human nature.' Louis L. Martz, Yale University, Modern Philology
