Biography of The Saviour, and His Apostles, with A Portrait of Each
 Picture
Publisher: Taylor & Dodd, 1840 New York.
Book. Book condition: Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 16mo - over 5 - 6" tall "The moral growth of man furnishes fruitful topics for interesting and instructive contemplation. Hence the study of Biography is attended with many peculiar advantages. It not only inspires us with an admiration and love of those virtues which come within the reach of imitation, but it also awakens us from the lethargy of indolence, and leads to the labor of virtue. In the lives of the individuals here alluded to, we may trace, in well defined characters, the operations of all those desires, appetites, and passions which mark the character of man. There virtue shines in her native lustre, and vice presents her awful picture of deformity. In the character of the Saviour is reflected the most lovely image of moral perfection. His divine lessons touch the heart, by the affecting combination of practice with theory. But in the lives of his Apostles, we have lamentable specimens of human degeneracy. Though they were eminent for piety, still the seeds of vice and discord often sprang up, and obscured their virtues. We aim at nothing more in this work, than to portray the general features in these characters, and to describe, as briefly as possible, the most important events attending the lives of the persons to whom they relate.." 108 pages. Book is in GOOD or better condition; some wear to cover; foxing to text pages, but otherwise clean; binding tight. No dust jacket.

Jackson, Margaret  
Extracts from Letters and Other Pieces Written by Margaret Jackson, During Her Last Illness
 Picture
Publisher: Benjamin & Thomas Kite, 1825 Philadelphia, PA.
Book. Book condition: Poor. No Jacket. Hardcover 12mo - over 6 - 7" tall "Margaret Jackson was daughter of Thomas and Biddy Jackson of Edenderry, in the King's County; she died in the prime of life, on the 16th of second month, 1822. Her last illness was of several years' duration, and the lingering progress of the disease was attended with severe bodily suffering. In its earlier stages she passed through distressing mental conflicts, arising from an apprehension of unfitness for the approaching awful change; yet these trials appear to have been perm9tted in mercy for her refinement - through the Redeemer's love she was brought to a state of peaceful resignation, raised in a remarkable manner above her sufferings, supported under extreme and protracted weakness, and enabled to rejoice in the hope of a glorious inheritance. In this favoured situation she felt a deep solicitude for the welfare of others, and under the influence thereof she often imparted lively and pathetic counsel to those who visited her; - the sweet impressions that accompanied these communications are still fresh in the memory of some. Nor was it only towards such of her near relatives and friends as were from time to time introduced to her chamber that her affectionate feelings were thus awakened; she earnestly desired that all who suffer the cares of this uncertain world, or its transitory enjoyments, to usurp the chief place in their hearts, might be aroused to a sense of their dangerous situation, and induced to seek first the kingdom of heaven; that, learning of Him who is 'meek and lowly of heart, ' they might, at a time when all human support and consolation are unavailing, experience the fulfilment of His gracious promise, 'ye shall find rest unto your souls.' It was during this illness, and chiefly in the more advanced part of it, when altogether deprived of the power of speech, that the manuscripts were written from which the following pages are selected. Some of them were designed by the writer for individuals to whom they were addressed; but the greater part, it is believed, were intended for more general use, and of these there has been very little omitted. It is hoped the simple language in which her sentiments are conveyed, will not prevent their favourable reception by the reader; and that the circumstances under which they were written, whilst they entitle them to his indulgence, will give them an additional claim to his attention." v + 95 pages + 1 page of listings by the publisher. Book is in POOR condition. Front and rear boards are detached. Text pages are clean and complete.

Book. Book condition: Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 12mo - over 6 - 7" tall "This book is an attempt to prove, after twenty-seven years of close attention to the subject, that the second coming of Christ, or the parousia, is a past event, and then to present an eschatology consistent with such a showing. The course pursued is this: First, to show that the parousia is an event, not a dispensation, though an event ushering in a dispensation; that dispensation not to end with a cataclysm, but to be extended indefinitely. Second, to show, by a series of arguments so arranged as to give them cumulative force, that this event has taken place.." 394 pages.
