Bennett, D.D., Editor of the Richmond Christian Advocate. (Second Edition.) Richmond: Published by the Author. 1871 (c1870). 12.7 x 19.6cm. $75.00 From author's preface: "Soon after the writer of this volume entered the ministry, now above twenty-five years, he conceived the purpose of writing a history of Methodism in Virginia.... The main difficulty lay in the collection suitable materials.... Most fortunately, the family of Rev. Stith Mead placed in his hands the manuscript Journal of that eminently useful and extending through a period of forty years. This was found to contain a record of facts in connection with early Methodism of the greatest value, besides copies of documents of an official character that had escaped the notice of every other writer. This Journal was destroyed, with the library of the author, in the great fire at Richmond in April, 1865... The work has been carried forward in the midst of the daily engagements of the regular pastorate, and though nearly completed before the outbreak of the late civil war, it has since been revised with care... W.W.B. Ashland, Va., 1870." Bound publisher's textured cloth with gilt lettering on spine, small silverfish type holes in cloth of cover--especially the front cover, fraying at corners & spine ends consolidated with flexible book adhesive, worn through cloth in spots along edges of covers, brown endpapers starting to crack at front hinge--loose edges pasted back down, pages tanning but otherwise in good condition and not brittle.

New-York: Published by T. Mason and G. Lane, For the Methodist Episcopal Church, at the Conference Office, 200 Mulberry-Street. J. Collord, Printer. 1840. 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.

"More than a quarter of century has elapsed since the organization of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South. The men who were prominent in the General Conference of 1844, the extrajudicial legislation of which body resulted in the division of the Methodist Episcopal Church in the United States into two separate and distinct ecclesiastical organizations, with but few exceptions have passed away... Since the division...a new generation has come upon the scene, who are not familiar with the circumstances that led to the separation. The object of this work is to place in a permanent and enduring form the proceedings of the General Conference of 1844, so far as they bear upon this questions, together with all official documents and papers necessary to a full understanding of the reasons by which the Southern Delegates in that body were governed in the declaration they made that "a continuance of the jurisdiction of that General Conference over the Conferences they represented, was inconsistent with the success of the ministry in the slaveholding States.""--Preface.

Homer S. Thrall (1819-1894). Thrall arrived in Galveston in 1840. His circuits took him throughout the state. In 1843-44 he held the first camp meeting on the Guadalupe River (near the present location of Cuero), with Texas Rangers on hand to guard against Indian raids. He early made acquaintance with the early political leaders of the Texas--which he later credited with his interest in Texas history. He spent 50 years in the Methodist ministry in Texas. From author's Prefatory Note: "In this little volume the reader will find a condensed history of the rise and progress of Methodism in Texas; with brief sketches of leading preachers, and also the organization of local churches and the erection of church-buildings; the formation of circuits, districts, and Annual Conferences, especially in the Methodist Episcopal Church, South. One chapter is devoted to our literary institutions, and one to the Texas Christian Advocate. The facts and figures in the body of the book and in the full statistical tables of the Appendix are from official sources."
