This book was donated by the author to the Saint Ninian's Chapter Library. "Sermons that are brought together in a volume embody a new motive, over and above the direct aim with which each was separately preached. They profess that they are united together by more than the mere cover of the book. They claim to suggest a single impression; to communicate a single and paramount idea; to convey a single supposition; to witness to a single source; to promote a single interest; to work under a single direction; to tend towards a single conclusion. They trust that their partial and piecemeal treatment of their subject will correct itself by help of juxtaposition; so that they may lose their unhappy appearance, as loose and sketchy fragments, and may visibly be seen to cohere into a valid and substantial consistency...." - Preface from Creed And Character

Christian Baptism

By Alexander Campbell

This antiquarian book is in very good condition. The book has been rebound and the cover boards and binding is practically new. The pages inside however are worn, yellowed and tanned. There is considerable markings throughout the pages.The previous owners names are written on the inside of the front cover board, and on the front of the second end page. There is some signs of moisture damage and flecking throughout the pages. This edition is still very readable and a wonderful collector's item. "Christianity has its theory and its practice. Its theory is the Sacred Writings of the Apostles and Evangelists of Jesus Christ; its practice, the life of the Christian. The Christian profession is not now what it once was. It has become secular and sectarian. The members of the church of Christ were formerly called "saints," "elect of God," "a chosen generation," "a royal priesthood," "a peculiar people." Now they are called "Churchmen," "Dissenters," "Romanists," "Protestants," "Episcopalians," "Presbyterians," "Independents," "Baptists," "Methodists," &c. &c. &c. The church was once "a spiritual house," whose members were addressed as "justified," "sanctified," "adopted," and "saved." It was a "holy nation" whose citizens had their citizenship in heaven...." - Introduction from Christian Baptism: With Its Antecedents And Consequents

Particularly is the gratitude of the compiler due to the generous interest and valuable help of such eminent French Protestants as Dean Emile Doumerge, D.D.,of the Theological Faculty of Montauban,...." - Preface from Handbook Of French and Belgian Protestantism

"The reader will comprehend at once this book was not desiqned as a Treasury of imperishable American poems. To make a rigidly eclectic volume would be a diversion, and sometimes I have thought to spend a few evenings in obtaining two thirds of it from pieces named in the critical essays to which the present exhibit is supplementary.In fact, more than one projector of a handbook upon the lines of Palgrave's little classic has adopted the plan suggested, and has paid a like compliment to the texts revised by the editors of "A Library of American Literature"...." - Introduction from An American Anthology: 1787-1900: Selections Illustrating The Editors Critical Review Of American Poetry In The Nineteenth Century

The pages are yellowed and tanned, but free of any markings.This hymnal has stood the test of time extremely well. "As by the action of the General Convention (in setting forth a new collection of hymns), a new edition of the Church Hymnal was made necessary, so by the action of the same Convention in providing for an authorized pointing of the Canticles, etc., a new edition of the Chant Book seems to be required, or at least desired by many who have requested the editor of the Church Hymnal to prepare it. The same principal which guided the editor in the preparation of the Hymnal, viz., to provide for the needs of the average choir and congregation, has guided him in his work on this Chant and Service Book; and he sincerely hopes that it may be found useful wherever it is adopted. Concord, Massachusetts, Sept., A.D. 1894..." Preface from The Chant And Service Book

A Rational Illustration Of The Book Of Common Prayer Of The Church Of England

By Charles Wheatley

This antiquarian book is in poor condition. There is significant wear and damage to the front, back, spine and edges of the cover boards.The corners also have very pronounced bumping. The entire cover boards are taped with packing tape to hold the book together. The two front pages are loose and detached from the book. There is a marking on the front end page.The pages are yellowed, tanned and soiled. The only thing holding the book together is packing tape. "Most of the objections urged by the Dissenters against the Church of England, to justify their separation from it, being levelled against its form and manner of divine worship, prescribed in the Book of Common Prayer, &c., are, in the following Discourse, answered, as fully as its brevity would permit. So that, though the principal design of this book be to instruct such as are friends to our Church and Liturgy; yet it is not impossible but that, by the blessing of God, it may in some measure contribute to the undeceiving some that are enemies to both, (such I mean as are disaffected to the former, upon no other account, than a prejudice to the latter;) especially could we, by first convincing them of the Liturgies in general, prevail with them to take an impartial view of what is here offered in behalf of our own. To this end therefore, and to make the following sheets of as genera luse as I can, I shall, by way of Introduction, endeavor to prove these three things; viz." - A Rational Illustration Of The Book Of Common Prayer Of The Church Of England

The previous owners marks are inside on the front cover board.The pages are yellowed and tanned.The edges of the pages are tattered. The binding is loose and some of the pages are loose. This book is 110 years old and perfect for the serious collectors. "A re-statement of the scope of this Series seems a necessary preliminary to each successive volume. No formal biography is contemplated. There has been no attempt to tell in chronological order the life-story of any of the persons discussed, although the temptation in my case-and presume the same is true of the other authors in the Series-has been strong to do just that thing.The volumes of the Series, therefore, are the result of the exercise of at least one quality which goes to make a successful book-self restraint." - The True Andrew Jackson

The Cathedrals Of England

This antiquarian book is in poor condition. The cover has major wear on the front, back, spine, edges and corners. There are also stains on the cover boards. The previous owners mark is on the front end page. The pages are yellowed and tanned and the binding is loose but still intact. This book is 112 years old and is a perfect collectors item. "In a book this size it is clearly impossible to give a full description of the architecture of the thirty cathedrals of England. The principal aim of this book is to throw something of a personal interest around the cathedrals, by giving glimpses of the bishops, rulers, and other noted personages who have been connected with them through the long series of years which have elapsed since their erection. At the same time, an attempt has been made to state briefly but comprehensively the salient and distinguishing characteristics of each edifice." - Author's Forward, The Cathedrals Of England

Select Orations of Cicero With English Notes

By Charles Anthon, LL.D.

This antiquarian book is in fair condition. The binding is loose and cracked along the spine The cover is very worn on the edges corner and spine. There appears to be some water damage as well as some mold and mildew damage. The pages are yellowed and tanned and warped.The previous owners signature is on the front end page dated 1858. This book is a wonderful collectors item, but needs some good care and repair. Charles Anthon is famous in connection with the history of the Latter Day Saint movement because of his interactions with Martin Harris concerning a fragment of Joseph Smith's translation of the Book of Mormon. The fragment was later known as the Anthon Transcript. According to Harris, Anthon wrote Harris a letter of authenticity declaring the fragment to contain true Egyptian characters. Anthon was also reported to have confirmed the translation of these characters as correct. When informed that an angel of God had revealed the characters to Joseph Smith, Anthon reportedly tore up the authentication stating that there was no such thing as angels and asked Harris to bring the plates to him for translation. Martin Harris went to Dr. Samuel L. Mitchill afterwards and received a letter of authenticity from him. Anthon, however, disagreed with Harris' version of their encounter and stated in a letter to a Mr. E.D. Howe on February 17, 1834, that the story of Anthon's authentication was false, that Anthon had identified the writings as a hoax, and that Anthon had told Harris that the writings were part of "a scheme to cheat the farmer [Martin Harris] of his money...."

Pilgrim's Progress

By John Bunyan

This book is in poor condition.The binding is loose and coming apart. The previous owners names are written on the inside front board and the first end page. The cover is worn and spotted on the edges, corners and spine. The pages inside are tanned, yellowed and torn. The last four pages of the index are loose and pinned together. The only reason I am selling this book is because it is a collector's item. This book is almost 150 years old. The Pilgrim's Progress From This World, To That Which Is To Come, written by writer and preacher John Bunyan while in prison, is regarded as one of the most significant works of religious English literature. In the Christian allegory, the characters function as embodiments of the moral qualities in their names: Christian, Christiana, Great-heart, and Hopeful, to name a few.Though it now appears in one volume, Nathaniel Ponder of London originally published the two parts of The Pilgrim's Progress separately, printing Part 1 in 1678 and Part II later, in 1684. Part I of the Pilgrim's Progress quickly sold out, requiring a second edition within the year. The next year, a third edition — the definitive edition of the book ­­— was printed, with revisions as well as a number of scenes added by Bunyan.
