Disbound pamphlet, side-stitched, light tanning of pages, a few light foxing spots. Collation: 4 unsigned leaves, 94, 3-74. Pagination: (1) title, (1) blank, [3]-56pp. Nathan Lord (1792-1870) Congregational clergyman and president of Dartmouth College. He was pastor of the Congregational Church in Amherst, NH for 12 years before taking the position of president of Dartmouth College in 1828(upon the resignation of Bennet Tyler). He held this position until 1863. "He was an able executive and disciplinarian, however, and like his contemporary Mark Hopkins at Williams, a great teacher, whose character exercised a deep influence on students and associates. For many years he conducted courses in theology and ethics."--Dict. Amer. Biog. XI:409. "Dr. Lord upheld the institution of slavery, and thus incurred the censure of most northern people; but while he advocated his views in letters and sermons, Dartmouth was the only college in the United States for many years where colored students were admitted, and while under his care they were treated with uniform kindness and courtesy. He inclined to the old-school system of theology, and to a literal interpretation of the prophesies."--Appletons' Cyclopadia of American Biography, IV:25. "As a theologian he was, like Edwards, Hopkins, and Bellamy, of the school advocating a strictly liberal interpretation of prophecy, but left us few remains in print."--McClintock & Strong: Cyl. Biblical, Theol., & Eccl. Lit. V:505. "An I should esteem it more than a recompence for the loss of all things, if, at the close of life which I perceive to be hastening upon me, I might see more of my brethren of New Hampshire, and the College of our beloved State, planted, if

Robert Ryland (1805-1899) Baptist minister & educator. He was a pastor for 5 years in Lynchburg, Va, then took over at what became Richmond College as president, professor. He also labored among the slave population, serving as pastor of the First African Church from 1841 to 1865. The college closed during the Civil War. After the war, Ryland took a position to teach at the National Theological School for black preachers in Richmond. In 1868 he moved to Kentucky, becoming president of Shelbyville Female College, another at Lexington (1871-78) and also at New Castle 1878-81). We offer Ryland's hard-to-find Lectures on the Apocalypse. I quote from the author's preface: "The author the following Lectures lays no claim to originality in the views which they express. He has read several learned works on the Apocalypse, and has not hesitated to adopt their sentiments and language, without formal notice, whenever they have approved themselves to his judgment. Especially is he indebted to the very able exposition of Mr. David N. Lord, whose interpretation he has generally adopted throughout the following pages. Indeed, he advises those who have the means to purchase and the leisure to read that work, not to examine this at a

Redford Ashfield Watkinson, died June 9, 1876, was married to a Laura Ferris Gaul in New York City and appears to have lived his life in the city and thereabouts and according to his preface was apparently not clergy. "But Daniel and Ezekiel had open vision. The future history of the world is portrayed in pictures, and we are taught practically, what Jesus preached when he came, that there is no limit to the power of righteous man in prayer, as Daniel by his perseverance received all the knowledge he prayed for, and overcame the world and its dangers. We trace throughout this book the knowledge of the ancient zodiacal and astronomical systems as applied to religion, the general science of which is lost; the externals of that religion Jesus preached to set aside, yet his disciples retain that which he discarded, and that which he preached, the spirit of the ancient religion, they discard."--from last page of text, p.324.
