Very rare early 19th century imprint of scarce works by two influential 17th century puritans, Jeremiah Burroughs and Richard Baxter. Both Burroughs [see his Irenicum] and Baxter were generous puritans who labored against the narrowing circle of communion held by other Independents and Presbyterians. A wonderful little read and very unusual on the market.
