This is a wonderful little remainder of the Great Awakening period and all sermons delivered in a fascinating context; seekers meetings designed for those who were under conviction during the revival, but who were praying and thinking their way through to true conversion and assurance of faith. This is the only assemblage of similar situated sermons I ever recall seeing, each preached at the Newton seeker meetings in the summer of 1741. 

All three titles, here bound in a single sammelband, are exceptionally scarce, though woefully imperfect as preserved. Still, nearly unobtainable and an aesthetically wonderful little icon of the kind of preaching happening as a result of and around the circles influenced by Jonathan Edwards and George Whitefield.

Includes:

Cotton, John. Two Sermons Deliver'd at the Lecture in Newton, April 29. and May 8. 1741. When many were seeking for Direction and Assistance under their Conviction from the Spirit of God Striving with Them. Boston. S. Kneeland and T. Green. 1741. 70pp.

Williams, William. A Discourse on Saving Faith. Designed as some Assistance to Serious Christians Concerned to know the Difference between it and that Common Faith which many have, who will not be acknowledged by Christ. Preached at Newton, June 14th, 1741. Boston. S. Kneeland and T. Green. 1741. 50pp.

Appleton, Nathanael. Evangelical and Saving Repentance Flowing from a Sense of the Dying Love of Christ Distinguished from Legal Sorrow in a Sermon from Zech XII. 10. Preach'd at Newton, August 9th, 1841. Boston. S. Kneeland and T. Green. 1941. 44pp. 

Again, please expect this volume to be woefully imperfect. The first work is torn across the title and begins at page 9, but thereafter complete. The second work, oddly, is the same. It has a torn title and begins on page 9. The final work has title, begins on page 1 and is only complete through page 44. 

William Williams was pastor at Hatfield, MA was one of the more aged advocates of the revival. He cheered on both Edwards and Whitefield and, shortly after the seeker meetings of 1741, passed into eternity having seen the desire of his heart fulfilled in the revivals. 

John Cotton was another "New Light" Presbyterian during the great awakening who was reproved for being "pneumatic," i.e. too enthused about the work of the Spirit.

Nathanael Appleton was also one of the "New Lights" and the same year would preach a sermon defending the work of God under Whitefield on his visit to Boston. 

If these were in good order, we would not blush to ask $1,500 to $2,000 for it. Well worth preserving.
