Man's Great Charter. An Exposition of the First Chapter of Genesis.
London: James Nisbet & Co, 1892. 1st edition. "We have a document which without question is more than two thousand years old. If we know that its teaching was intelligible, acceptable, and needful so many centuries ago, and find that it remains inntelligible, acceptable, and needful today; if we find that, notwithstanding the growth, revolution, and even revulsion there has been in the thoughts of mankind, it still answers reasonably and clearly certain questions which men seem made to ask and to which they can get no other answer so satisfying; if it is so written that it continues to reflect the latest-won truths, and shines like nature itself, with further un-approached but attractive light, and invites men to realize in a fuller life an ever-widening liberty; then surely it has an intrinsic value and even authority of its own, and need not wait upon critical opinions as to when and how it was derived." Pp.210. Maroon cloth, gilt title to spine, small publisher's label to front board. VG.
