Whitefield Anecdotes. Illustrating the Life, Character, and Work of the Great Evangelist.
London: The Religious Tract Society, nd. (c.1889?). "It was the voice of Whitefield which was the chief agent in starting that religious movement which grew to be almost a second Reformation in England. He soon was joined by others in the same grand cause, the Wesleys pre-eminent among them, but Whitefield was as much the representative man of the Great Revival of that time, as Luther had been of the Reformation in the sixteenth century. The influence of Whitefield for good, not only in England but also in America, can hardly be over-estimated." 17cms x 12cms. Pp.143/1(ad), portrait engraved frontispiece + engraving of Moorfields Tabernacle to title page, bookplate of Wattisham Sunday School Library (September 1889) with Rules to inside front board, cracking to inner hinges, rear endpaper absent.
