The Works of the Rev. Richard Cecil, M.A.
London, L. B. Seeley, 1816. 2nd edition. Hardcover.8vo,,Complete three volume set bound in original half leather,Cecil (1748 - 1810) was an Evangelical divine, who was ordained a priest in 1777, and became a popular preacher in, and near, London. He wrote devotional and biographical tracts. The first edition of this work was published in 1811. Our offering is the complete second edition. Nineteenth century (?) signature of George F. Teague on front free endpaper of each volume. A previous owner has neatly bound each volume in clear acetate. It actually doesn't look too bad, except for the shininess, and it certainly will serve to protect the leather and marbled boards from soiling. In time, however, the acetate will dry out and discolour. It is evident that there was some rubbing to the board edges. Rear hine a little weak on volume I; else all other joints and hinges tight. Contents show only occasional foxing, else clean and tight. A good plus set. Ill.: engraved frontispiece. Pagination: volume I, pp. , 565; volume II, pp. iv, 553; volume III, pp. iv, 613.
