What Our Customers Say...
Comprising: Lectures on The Gospel of St Matthew Delivered in the Parish Church of St James Westminster in the Years 1798-1801 (1823) 17th Edition; 'A Paraphrase of Saint Paul's First Epistle to the Corinthians With Explanatory Notes (1825)
Beilby Porteus' writings include lectures on 'Our Lord's Sermon on the Mount', 'Conduct and Character of the Roman Centurion', 'Nature and Use of Parables', 'Temptation of Christ in the Wilderness', 'Institution of the Lord's Supper'.
Rev I G Tolley's paraphrase is the first edition. This is a new exposition of St Paul's Epistles and, as he notes to the preface, is intended to 'draw the explanation from the context, by taking that meaning which gives the greatest coherence to the several parts, and consistency to the whole'.
Heraldic bookplate to the front pastedown of both volumes.
In uniform half calf bindings, with paper covered boards. Externally, very smart with light rubbing to the boards. Bookplate to the front pastedowns. Internally, both volumes are firmly bound. Pages are bright. Light spots to the endpapers, otherwise just the odd light spot.
Very Good Indeed
