DETAILS

A volume comprising of sixteen very scarce religious and political pamphlets, in attractive leather binding.

Dealing primarily with the organisation and systems of the Church of England, there are several other interesting works here on Catholicism (Why I Left the Church of Rome), the dangers of alcholism (A New Lecture on Malt Liquor) and two particularly notable speeches by Benjamin Disraeli and William Gladstone on the Burial Bill and Disestablishment respectively.

The volume contains a hand-written index page, and makes for a fascinating insight into clerical matters and politics during the ninteenth century.

The full list of works included here are as follows:

A Brief Comparison of the Fundamental Doctrines of the Anglican and Greek Churches by The Rev. G.O. Bagdon

The Intermediate State by the Bishop of the Diocese (1872)

The Holy Eucharist by Anglicanus

An Eirenicon, or An Appeal by C.S. Grueber (1873)

A Plea for Toleration in the Church of England by  William Bennett (1868)

Why I Left the Church of Rome by William Nevins

The Pew System in the National Church by Henry Clark (1869)

Tithes by J.D. Massingham (1870)

A Protest Against A Theory of "Conversion" by a Priest of the Church of England

Speech of the Right Hon. Benjamin Disraeli (1873)

Speech of the Right Hon. W.E. Gladstone (1873)

A New Lecture on Malt Liquor by Joseph Livesey (1871)

Who are the Ritualists

The Sale of Livings by Rev. S. Hornibrook (1873)

An Appeal to the People of the Church of England by Rev. C.S. Grueber (1874)

The Need of the Organisation of Laymen's Work by Henry Clark (1872)

 

CONDITION

In half-calf binding with gilt detailing. Externally, there is siginificant wear to the boards, joints, extremities and backstrip, with some worming and minor loss to joints, as well as tenderness to hinges. Internally, the pages are firmly bound and are generally bright and clean throughout, though there are some instances of light foxing and an ink inscription to the front-free endpaper, and an inkstamp to the Pew System title page. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED in GOOD binding.

What Our Customers Say...

So surprised to find that my book is already in Shanghai, the shipment is so fast. I write to thank you for the great classic books and safe experience you have offered.

Lou, China

That is probably the fastest I think I’ve ever gotten anything in the mail. It came quicker than something I would have ordered from the U.S.! Second, these books are just so beautiful. I’ve loved books for quite some time now but am only beginning to collect antique books such as the ones I purchased. To me, holding essentially a piece of history from so long ago is an indescribable feeling. Because I am so happy with my package, I just felt compelled to write y’all an email.  In sum, I am an incredibly satisfied customer and will most definitely be shopping from your magnificent collection again.

Barbara, USA

 Great item.

Roger, UK

It is always an enormous relief to me when long distance computerized sales are successful. Again, thank you for all your help.
