Two very rare first editions by Daniel Rowland [1711-1790]. He and Howell Harris were the two leading lights in the Welsh Calvinistic Methodist arm of the Great Awakening. He is often thought of as the "Pastor" of the Welsh Revival. Of equal influence with men like Whitefield, he felt it was just as important to establish the work of revival as to start it. Fascinating look at a pastor par excellence's ministry during the period of a substantial awakening.
We have never handled either of the present works before. A rare opportunity.
The first work has the original subscriber's list, which includes: John Berridge, Rowland Hill, Selina Countess of Huntingdon, etc.

Both housed in a nineteenth century half leather volume; some rubbing, marbled boards rubbed and lifting. Very solid and attractive. Second work trimmed close in margins, but not affecting text. Good + to very good.
