by Sime, William

Condition: Very Good


Presbyterian Board of Publication, Philadelphia:, 1841 pp. xiii, 13-346; vi, 7-350. 16mo. 160mm. Original publisher's full brown textured cloth binding embossed with ornamentation. Spines decorated and lettered in gilt. Boards clean with some fading. Spines lightly faded with light wear at heads and bases. Corners sharp. Contents clean. Hardbound. Very Good. The Covenanters were a Scottish Presbyterian movement that played an important part in the history of Scotland, and to a lesser extent that of England and Ireland, during the 17th century. Presbyterian denominations tracing their history to the Covenanters and often incorporating the name continue the ideas and traditions in Scotland and internationally. They derived their name from the word covenant meaning a band, legal document or agreement, with particular reference to the Covenant between God and the Israelites in the Old Testament. There were two important covenants in Scottish history: the Scottish Covenant and the Solemn League and Covenant. NW51. Hardcover. Very Good.
