Pagination: (1) title, (1) blank, (1) contents, (1) blank, [5]-6 Preface, [7]-154pp. Rowe: Methodist Union Catalog E1240. John Emory (1789-1835) Methodist Bishop. He studied law and practiced for one year when he chose to enter the Methodist ministry fulfilling appointments in Philadelphia, Wilmington, Baltimore, Washington & Annapolis. He was elected bishop in 1832, and died in a carriage accident in 1835. Emory had published A Defence of Our Fathers in 1827 at a time when "the economy of the Methodist Episcopal Church was assailed by foes from within." The Episcopal Controversy Reviewed came about from a desire by John Emory "to prepare an entirely new work, in which the government of the Methodist Episcopal Church should be defended, not merely against the cavils of a particular party or sect, but against all opposition; and its entire accordance with Scriptural authority and primitive usage be established by a full investigation of the subject of episcopacy in general, and of Methodist episcopacy in particular. Such was the plan of the present work: the sudden death of the author left it but partially and imperfectly executed. The manuscript contained only a discussion of the subject of episcopacy in general, in a reply to "An Essay on the Invalidity of Presbyterian Ordination, by John Esten Cooke, M.D.," and a part of a reply to a tract entitle "Episcopacy tested by Scripture," by Dr. H.U. Onderdonk... The principal object of the editor...has been to follow the original, without and additions or alterations other than those which were necessary, and which are marked as such..."--Preface pp. iii-v. Bound full calf with about half of the red morocco title label remaining, leather splitting along hinges, top of spine chipped away, heavily rubbed & scuffed, worn through leather at corners, large damp stains at beginning of books, smaller damp stains scattered throughout, light to medium foxing, endpapers and frontispiece with heavy foxing, pencil scribbling on rear endpapers, "Withdrawn" library stamp on front paste-down endpaper but no other library marks, previous owners names.
