Thoughts on Parts of Leviticus.
London, 1881. Hardcover. pp. x, 469.Small 8vo,,Bound in 3/4 green 'pebbled' leather over green buckram boards,Newton (1807-1899) was an evangelist and author of Christian books. He was born in England, to a Quaker family. He obtained a First Class classics degree from Oxford University. While at university he converted to the Anglican faith, but became disenchanted with the church's practices, especially its subjugation to the state. He formed his own church, holding open services for members form all denominations. His congregation became known as the 'Plymouth Brethren'. The adherents rejected the concept of the clergy and priesthood, and refused to serve in the armed forces. Although, in later years, there was a great schism in the movement between Newton, and his major rival John Nelson Darby, as a result of which Newton was effectively excommunicated from the Brethren, he remained active for many years as an independent preacher, and author of numerous books and pamphlets (over 200 during his long career). The first edition of this work was published in 1848. Our copy is described on the title page as the 'Third Edition, Considerably Enlarged.' Normally, the publisher is shown as Houlston and Company but, on our copy, a printed sticker has been laid over the publisher's name, which says 'C. M. Tucker, Printer and Publisher' (London). A previous owner has made extenive notes to this book, mainly in pencil, which could be erased. Former owner's names in ink at top of title page. Joints and headbands rubbed, with slight edge wear otherwise. Contents tight. A good, to good plus, copy. .
