A slightly updated version, also rare, of the 1778 version we are also offering. This is Samuel Palmer's work, which has so much additional material as to be substantially a different work that Calamy's, on the Puritan Great Ejection of 1662.
Contains additional plates from the 1778 edition. The engravings include: Edmund Calamy Senior; Edmund Calamy Junior; Thomas Doolittle; William Bates; Samuel Annesley; Henry Jessey; Thomas Watson; John Owen; Thomas Goodwin; Samuel Clark; Nathaniel Vincent; John Hickes; John Flavel; Obadiah Hughes; John Howe; Increase Mather; Nathaniel Partridge; Thomas Jollie; Samuel Mather; Samuel Shaw; Vincent Alsop; William Bridges; Francis Tallents; Samuel Craddock; Samuel Stodden; George Newton; Richard Baxter; Oliver Heywood; and James Janeway.
There also appear to be a small quantity of additional plates not called for, i.e. Samuel Stodden, etc.

Embellished with the Heads of the principal Divines, chiefly from original Pictures. London. J. Cundee for Button and Son. 1802. 434 + 479 + 528pp.
Original calf boards, a moderate quality job of overspining; not unattractive, but if it were me, I would have it redone at some point. Contents good. Each volume signed by Samuel Rolls of Aldersgate, a prominent late 18th and early 19th century dissenter in London whose third or fourth generation Grandfather was also Samuel Rolls of London, a Puritan minister who was ejected as well. Solid, some handling and minor to moderate foxing.
