What Our Customers Say...
Leather Binding, Original Binding, Very Scarce
A very scarce work. This work is an interesting look into the life of a Christian in the nineteenth century, starting with their birth, and following them through their baptism, marriage, and the eventual death of a Christian. Originally written in German by Friedrich August Gottreu Tholuck, a Protestant theologian. Tholuck originally wished to be a missionary, before deciding on becoming a theological professor. He also wrote 'Sufismus, sive theosophia Persarum Pantheistica', 'Blutensammlung aus der morgenlandischen Mystik', and 'Denkwurdigkeiten'. Translated here into English by Reverend Robert Menzies, who was the minister of Hoddam. Prior owner's ink inscription to the recto to the front free endpaper, 'To Mabel Cowan, from her Uncle + Aunt .... 8th Aug 1861'.
In the original full calf binding. Externally, the front board is detached but present. Patches of rubbing to the spine and to the extremities, with heavier rubbing to the joints. Minor marking to the boards, being heavier to the head of the front board. Prior owner's ink inscription to the recto to the front free endpaper, 'To Mabel Cowan, from her Uncle + Aunt .... 8th Aug 1861'. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright with the odd spot, heavier to the first and last few pages.
