C. H. Spurgeon ". . . the matter is all the choicest kind. This old folio is like an old skin bottle, with a rough exterior, but filled within with the product of the rarest vintage. Such books as this we never tire of reading." Commenting and Commentaries

Edward Elton [1569-1624]. A rather red-hot puritan who caused such a stir where he preached in Barmondsey near London that upon his death his works were burned publicly. He had no room for innovation, for man-made worship, for any hint of justification by works and deviation from the Gospel of grace.

Elton, Edward. The Complaint of a Sanctified Sinner Answered; or, An Explanation of the Seventh Chapter of the Epistle of Saint Paul to the Romans, Delivered in Divers Sermons. Preached by Edward Elton, Bachelour in Divinity and Preacher of God's Word; and now by Him Published. London. W. Stansby for Robert Mylbourne at the Signe of the Blacke Beare. 1618. 509pp.
