The Holy Bible
London - A. Fullerton and Co., 1842 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A beautifully illustrated copy of the Christian Bible. With forty-four engraved plates, including a frontispiece to each volume and a folding frontispiece map to volume I. Also with decorative papers for family registers, left blank. With explanatory notes, practical observations, and copious marginal references by Thomas Scott, and an introductory essay and numerous additional critical, explanatory and practical notes by William Symington. William Symington was a Reformed Presbyterian (Cameronian) minister. Among the Reformed Presbyterians Symington, like his brother, was a commanding influence. A noted evangelical in the covenanting tradition, he was none the less outward-looking and deeply involved in social issues such as slavery, illiteracy, and poor working conditions. Like Thomas Chalmers, whom he in part resembled, he advocated a Scotland cleansed and dedicated. Besides his published sermons, he recorded his views in The Atonement and Intercession of Jesus Christ (1834) and Messiah the Prince (1839; reissued 1881 with memoir). The latter was an important exposition of Cameronian ecclesiological thought. (DNB)Complete in three volumes. Condition: In full morocco bindings. Externally smart, with just some marks to the boards and some shelfwear. Front joints of volumes I,II and III starting; rear joint of volume I also starting. Internally, firmly bound. Fron hinges of volumes I and III strained, but firm. There is some off-setting from the plates. Some foxing to plates, and some scattered spotting to the pages. Overall: VERY GOOD..
