Plains Sermons by Contributors to the 'Tracts for the Times. ' Vol. II. / New Edition
London, J. G. F. & J. Rivington, 1845. 1st edition. Hardcover. pp. iv, 299.8vo,,,'Tracts for the Times' was a very important publication of 88 tracts, or printed arguments, which appeared between 1834 to 1840, with a supplemental volume containing the final two tracts appearing in 1842. It was published in England by a group of High Church Anglicans, sometimes referred to together as the 'Oxford Movement', whose members included Cardinal John Henry Newman (who was the principal contributor), John Keble, Henry Edward Manning, and Gerard Manley Hopkins, Richard Hurrell Froude and Robert Wilberforce. They were also known as 'Tractarians' due to their contributions to this publication. They sought to demonstrate that the Church of England was an orthodox descendant of the Roman Catholic church established by the Old and New Testament apostles. This offering is one volume of a ten volume set and contains excerpts from the original publications now organized systematically by topic. Bound in original printed boards, which are now worn, very soiled and with the front joint just starting. (It may be that the soiling is from smoke - not from tobacco - but from having been exposed to wood smoke). The contents show the odd spot of foxing but the binding is still intact and they are otherwise in good condition. .
