Roman Chvrch. Deuided into three seuerall tractes. Whereof the first concerneth the antiquity & continuance of the Roman Church & religion, euer since the Apostles times. The second 1. That the Protestants religion was not so much as in being, at, or before Luthers first appearing. 2. That the marks of the true Church are apperteyning to the Roman, and wholy wanting to the seuerall Churches, begun by Luther & Caluin. The third That Catholicks are no less loyall and dutifull to their soveraigne, than Protestants. All which is vndertaken, & proued by testimonies of the learned Protestants themselues.

PROTESTERS no subverters, and Presbyterie no Papacie; or, a vindication of the protesting brethren, and of the government of the Kirk of Scotland, from the aspersions unjustly cast upon them, in a late pamphlet of some of the Resolution party, entituled, A declaration, &c. With a discovery of the insufficiency, inequality and iniquity of the things propounded in that pamphlet, as overtures of union and peace. Especially, of the iniquity of that absolute and unlimited submission to the sentences of Church-judicatories that is holden forth therein, and most unjustly pleaded to belong to the being and essence of Presbyterial government. By some witnesses to the way of the Protestation. [By James GUTHRIE.]

“According to the promise made in my post-script to the first part of the English rogue, I purposed to have finisht that book in a second part, travelling him through the gentiler parts of Europe, topographically discribing all places of eminency, with an account of what tricks and rogueries he committed where ever he came ; but the cudgels were snatcht out of my hands before I had fairly laid them down, I intending to have had but one more bout at the same weapons, and so have compleated the Rogue, but seeing the continuator hath allready added three parts to the former, and never (as far as I can see) will make an end of pestering the world with more volumes and large editions, I diverted my intention into this subject, the Art of wheedling, or insinuation, wherein, I have been at no small pains in the method and contexture: what I have collected hath been out of the choicest French and English authours, not so much as casting an eye upon any copy of the aforesaid continuator, that might any ways assist me in this composure. I would willingly do him any prejudice, though I have been injur’d, and abused by him, and his instigating others, yet his unkindness I repay with respect, and would not be indebted to him for that character he gave me in the second part of the Rogue, but that I fear I should wrong his reputation by ill-wording his encomium; wherefore I shall be silent and refer you to his Unlucky citizen, and books of knight-errantry, &c., which lowdly speak his panagyrick.” Epistle prefixed to Proteus redivivus, from which it appears that Lowndes is mistaken in assigning the second part of the Eng
