In 1625, Lady Eleanor Davies published her first treatise, A Warning to the Dragon, initiating her controversial career as a writer of prophetic tracts. They focus on a complex of personal and political events that Lady Eleanor thought indicated the fast approach of the last days foretold by the biblical prophets Daniel and John of Patmos. A complement to Teresa Feroli's facsimile edition of Eleanor Davies' pre-1640 texts (Ashgate, 2000), this pair of volumes reproduces 60 texts from the corpus of 66 printed between 1641 and 1652.
