1844 MODE & DESIGN of CHRISTIAN BAPTISM by an AMERICAN EPISCOPAL MINISTER
AN ESSAY ON THE MODE AND DESIGN OF CHRISTIAN BAPTISM : In Which The Scriptures Are Carefully Examined, And Made The Only Book Of Appeal For Positive Proof, by Leonard Parker, Minister of the M. E. Church (Methodist Episcopal Church).
NEW PHILADELPHIA: Printed at the Lutheran Standard Office, 1844. First Edition.
Hardcovers, cloth covered boards, gilt title on spine (mostly rubbed off with age), small format, 4x6 inches, 304 pages.
FAIR condition: the covers are worn, the cloth covering has a couple small holes, and the spine gilt has faded away, but they are still doing their job well; internally, the rear endpapers are full of early handwritten notes and some accounting; both the front and rear endpapers have browned and the front free endpaper has a nickel size stain that has bled through to the first few pages; there is foxing throughout; nevertheless a solid, complete copy with printing that is bright and clear throughout.
