MARRIAGE WITH A DECEASED WIFE'S SISTER, OR A NIECE. Contrary to the Law of God and to the Laws and C (Used)

Book ID: 3074, 3074
London: Author 1886, 7th edition, thin 8vo, gilt ruled red cloth, aeg, 44pp, one plate, tp and frontis printed in color, sewing strained and fragile. With engraved presentation bookplate from the author to the Earl of Clarcarty, "for use in the House of Lords." Historical work on this Biblical marriage tradition, with quotations in Greek and Hebrew. The layout and printing here is exceptional, with Greek and Hebrew marginal notes, tp and plate are bright symbolic lithographs, gold pyramid symbol on front & back covers. The subject has tormented people forever, and was a hot legal issue in the 1800's, when marriage to a wife's sister was considered a kind of religious consanguinity. Rare.
