London: Rivingtons, 1879. New edition. Originally published in the "British Magazine" contemporarily with the "Tracts for the Times" and the "Churchof the Fathers". "All three had one object, that of enforcing what the authors considered to be Apostolical or Primitive Christianity, at a time when its principles, doctrines, discipline, usages, and spirit seemed, in the length and breadth of the Anglican Communion, to be wellnigh forgotten. The "Lyra Apostolica," on the whole, took the ethical side of Christianity; the Tracts, the theological and controversial; while the "Church of the Fathers" was mainly historical." 14cms x 10.5cms x 2cms. All edges red. Pp.xvi/256, red-ruled margins, owner's name to reverse of front free endpaper, a few very light spots but generally very clean throughout. Dark blue pebbled cloth with blind-stamped borders, gilt title to front and spine, bevelled edges. VG.
