A rather nicely preserved copy of the rarest of the "Morning Exercises" conducted by Ministers of London and visiting Puritan and Covenanter divines specifically for the equipping of ministers doctrinally and practically. The volume includes addresses by John Owen, David Clarkson, Thomas Manton, Samuel Annesley, and many more . . . plus has some interesting Scottish provenance.

25 master class sermons in all, each a theological treatise on its own. 

Original full calf, dulled and rubbed, but still attractive. Hinges through, but intact and holding. Should be handled with care. Text block itself very solid. Light chipping to title. Interesting period inscription around the title of "Heugh Moor" apparently of "Hill Kurnock" or similar. There is an 18th century Scottish Presbyterian of this name. He seems a likely candidate. Remainder of text is generally clean, though handled. Very crisp.
