Gerardus Joannes Vossius. De theologia gentili, et physiologia Christiana; sive De origine ac progressu idololatriae.
Amsterdami: Apud Ioannem Blaeu. Prostant etiam Londini apud Cornelium Bee, 1668.
The book was probably supplied by its London publisher, Cornelius Bee. It has a contemporary plain calf binding typical of books acquired by the Chapter Library at this time. It is listed in the 1743 printed catalogue (p. 103, 'De origine idolatriae').
The Cathedral Archive has a receipt dated December 1668 for £151–6s–6d from Bee for supplying books to the order of Canon John Aucher (CCA-DCc-LA-1/8).
