19TH-ENG-LOND-RIVINGTONS 
Authorized Report of the Meetings in Defence of the Athanasian Creed which were Held in St. James's Hall and in the Hanover Square Rooms on January 31, 1873. With an Explanatory Preface. Second Edition. London: Rivingtons, Waterloo Place. High Street Oxford, Trinity Street Cambridge. 1893. Octavo, 133.6 x 20.8cm. Pamphlet in gray wrapper with title also on wrapper, front cover strengthened at edges & rehinged with archival paper, damp stain on outer margins of upper half of pages, light tanning of pages.

Last page reads: London: Printed by William Clowes and Sons, Duke Street, Stamford Street, and Charing Cross. This meeting and pamphlet came about because "It was announced early in 1872, that the Bishops of the Province of Canterbury would invite the Lower House of that Province to consider what method of dealing with the Athanasian Creed would tend to remove the difficulties which it was alleged were occasioned by its present use in the Service of the Church of England; a Committee of Clergy and Laity was therefore organized by the exertions of a few Laymen, and the following circular was issued to all the Parochial Clergy of England and Wales. 'Reverend Sir, We, the undersigned, beg leave to urge upon you very seriously the importance and necessity of obtaining the signatures of your parishioners to a petition, headed by yourself, to the Lower House of Convocation of Canterbury... in favour of maintaining the Athanasian Creed in its integrity in the Public Service of the Church." They ended up obtaining 38,000 signatures in favour of keeping the creed.

William Ellery Channing (1780-1842) American Unitarian pastor. "In the schism...between conservative and liberal Congregationalist in America, Channing espoused the liberal or Unitarian cause, and preached against the doctrines of the Trinity, the Atonement, and total depravity. From about 1820, he was considered to be a Unitarian, and is often reckoned the greatest American Unitarian theologian; but he disapproved of Unitarianism as a sect, and regarded himself as belonging 'not to a sect but to the community of free minds.' He 'desired to escape the narrow walls of a particular church.'"--Cross: Oxford Dict. of the Christian Church (1963), p.262

CHURCH OF ENGLAND; ANTHONY SPARROW, comp. A Collection of Articles, Injunction, Canon, Orders, Ordinances and Constitutions Ecclesiastical, With other Publick Record of the Church of England, Chiefly in the Times of K. Edward VI> Q. Elizabeth, K. James, K. Charles I. Published to Vindicate the Church of England, and to promote Uniformity and Peace in the same. The Second Edition Enlarged. London, Printed for Robert Cutler and Joseph Clarke over against the Globe, and at the Star in Little Britain. 1671. Quarto, 16.7 x 20.5 x 4.2cm. $285.00

This collection was published early on at the Restoration (1st ed. 1661) and here in the second edition 1671. It was part of the Restoration attempt to insure that the Church of England stuck to what at the time was considered their ancient doctrines contra the Puritans. It was published in the same spirit as the Sealed Book of Common Prayer (1662)--"this is what we believe and let us not forget it." In the "Preface to the Reader" the compiler, Anthony Sparrow makes the case that church must maintain its purity in doctrine and discipline, citing the Old Testament & St. Paul. He makes a distinctiong between infallibility and authority in the church, but states based on Deut. 17, "that in doubts the Inferiour were to stand to the decision and sentence of the Priests and the Judge, and yet their judgment was not infallible... This Authority in determining doubts and controversies, the Church hath practised in all Ages, and her constant practice is the best interpreter of her right... From these premises it plainly follows that our dear Mother the Church of England in making these Canons and Articles for determining of controversies in matters of belief, which you may see in the ensuing Collection, did no more than what was both her right and her duty to do, both for the preservation of her peace, and the guidance and conduct of the souls committed to her charge; and what her care hath been in the exercise of this power for the good of her members ever since the Reformation, will evidently to her honour appear by this following Collection, made up not without great care industry of the Publisher... for by the CAnons and Articles following, which were formerly scattered and hard to be seen by every one, now gathered together into a body, it easily appearts to any that will open their eyes and read, that the Reformation of this Church was orderly and Synodical by the Guides and Governours of souls, and confirmed by Supreme Authority, and so in every particular as legal as any Reformation could or ought to be."

Bound in original leather over boards with simple double fillet lines around edges of boards, somtime nicely rebacked and re-cornered in brown morocco with raised bands and gilt title in one spine panel, new endpapers and flyleaves, occasional light foxing but otherwise quite clean.

Colloquy of Mömpelgart, Tubingen, 1587, between Lutheran & Reformed. With inscription on front cover: "Wild Rice Polk Co., Minnesota 1880" and inside "To Prof. James N. Preus from his uncle J.C.K. Preus."

COLLOQUY OF MÖMPELGART. Acta Colloquij Montis Belligartensis: Quod habitum est, Anno Christi 1586. Fauente Deo Opt. Max Præside, Illustrissimo Principe ac Domino, Domino Friderico, Comite Wirtembergico et Mompelgatensi, &c. Inter Clarissimos Viros, D. Iacobum Andreæ, Præpositum & Cancellarium Academiæ Tubingensis: & D. Theodorum Bezam Professorem & Pastorem Genuensem, Authoritate Praedicti Principis Friderici, &c. nunc Anno Christi 1587. publicata. Haec acta Candide et bona fide consignata, vanissimos de hoc Colloquio sparsos rumores, inprimis vero Epistolam quandam, vanitatibus & calumnijs refertam, & typis excusam, abundè refutabunt. Cum Privilegio. Tubingæ, Per Georgium Gruppenbachium, Anno M.D.LXXXVII. [1587] quarto, 16.5 x 20.3cm. $1,500.00

There is a nice inscription in old pen on front cover that reads "Wild Rice Polk Co. Minnesota, 1880." There are three ownership inscriptions in the bottom right hand corner of the title page. The first is inked out so that it can not be read. The second is "M. Wilhelm Lüdovicus Ruoff. SS. Theol. Stud: 1604." The third reads: "A. K. Sagenius SS. Theol Stud. In Urbe Sancti Ludovici 1878." Then in pencil and on the recto of the front paste-down endpaper is "To/ Prof. James N. Preus From/ His uncle J C K Preus."

The Colloquy of Mömplegart was a disputation between Lutherans and Reformed at the castle of Mömpelgart(or French: Montbéliard) near the French border. It was occasioned by the incorporation of the county of Mömpelgart into the duchy of Württemburg by inheritance. A Calvinistic type of the Reformation had been established there in 1535, but the duke of Württemberg attempted to reorganize the church on the Lutheran model. To further this, he arranged the disputation--primarily between Beza on the Reformed side and Andreä on the Lutheran, even though others were also participants, including Lucas Osiander & Abraham Musculus. The points of controversy were (1) the Lord's Supper, (2) the person of Christ, (3) pictures and ceremonies, (4) baptism, and (5) election. Both parties claimed victory. Beza disputed the correctness of the Acta of Tübingen and defended himself in Latin and German. The only result of the dispute was a deepening of the differences between the parties.--A. Schweizer in The New Schaff-Herzog Ency. Religious Knowledge, 8:42. This is the Tübingen Acta. It is both an important and rare source document for the study of the history of the Reformation and Reformation theology. Bound in a handsome dated binding.

Bound contemporary vellum, vellum soiled some, lacks ties, paste-down endpapers with tears and no longer pasted down, light scattered foxing, scattered old underlining, light damp stain in bottom margin of all pages--it moves up into the side margins also on the last 200 pages.

EDWARDS, JONATHAN. History of Redemption, On a Plan Entirely Original: Exhibiting the Gradual Discovery and Accomplishment of the Divine Purposes in the Salvation of Man; Including a Comprehensive View of Church History, and the Fulfilment [sic] of Scripture Prophecies. By the Late Reverend Jonathan Edwards, President of the College of New Jersey. To which are how [sic] added Notes, Historical, Critical, and Theological, with the Life and Experience of the Author. Whoso is wise, and will consider these things, even they shall understand the loving kindness of the Lord.--Psa.cvii. New-York: Printed by T. and J. Swords, for the Editor, M,DCC,XCIII. [1793]. Octavo, 13.3 x 21.4 x 4.5cm. $350.00

Jonathan Edwards, 1703-1758, "the first great philosophic intelligence in American history... He created the first great religious revival of modern times; intensified the power of Calvinism to stem the tide of the world's new thought; fused the iron logic of that system with a rapture of mystic communion; and initiated a New England Theology as a new chapter in the history of doctrine"--Francis A. Christie in Dictionary of American Biography, VI:36-37.

Regarding his History of Redemption: "Yet another aspect of Edwards' thought, never fully expressed before his early death, is detailed in his projected A History of the Work of Redemption... edited by John Erskine, which is believed to constitute Edwards' claim to real originality: a system of theology in the form of a history of God's work of redemption."--Nelson R. Burr: A Critical Bibliography of Religion in America, pp.982-83.

George Fox(1624-1691) founder of the Society of Friends. "Born in Leicestershire and apprenticed to a shoemaker, he apparently had no formal schooling. In 1643 he parted from family and friends and traveled in search of enlightenment. After long painful struggles he came in 1646 to rely on the `Inner Light of the Living Christ.' He forsook church attendance, dismissed contemporary religious controversies as trivial, and in 1647 began to preach that truth is to be found in God's voice speaking to the soul--hence, `Friends of Truth' later abbreviated to `Friends.' In 1649 he was jailed for interrupting a Nottingham church service with an impassioned appeal from the Scriptures to the Holy Spirit as the authority and guide. In 1650 at Derby he was imprisoned as a blasphemer, and there a judge nicknamed the `Quakers,' after Fox had exhorted the magistrates to 'tremble at the word of the Lord.' ...Fox spent six years in different prisons, sometimes under terrible conditions. He campaigned against the latter and against other social evils... His famous journal was published posthumously in 1694."--Douglas: The New Int'l Dict. of the Christian Church, pp.383-384. We offer the 1694 First Edition of his Journal, indispensable for the study of his life and the early days of the Quakers.
