Very attractive Scottish tree calf edition of Willison's  [1680-1750] classic on the Sabbath. He was of the Evangelical branch of the Church of Scotland and was chiefly responsible for attempting to heal the breach between the Erskines and the Scottish Church. He was successful for a time, but only under the condition that he could secure a provision of no further patronage for ministers. He failed, and the church ultimately split. 

His Afflicted Mans' Companion and Treatise Concerning Sanctification of the Lord's Day are both important and influential pieces of historic Scottish devotion, being reprinted and circulated extensively for over 100 years. 

Willison, John. A Treatise Concerning Sanctification of the Lord's Day, Wherein the Morality of the Sabbath, or the Perpetual Obligation of the Fourth Commandment is Maintained against Adversaries; And the Religious Observation of the Lord's Day, or First Day of the Week as Our Christian Sabbath, is Strongly Proved by Scripture Arguments. Containing also Many Special Directions and Advices for Better Performing the Most Necessary and Comprehensive Duty or Sabbath-Sanctification. To which are Added (by way of Appendix) Meditations for the Sabbath-Day, Taken from the Author's Manuscripts, Never Before Published, Proper for Families. Edinburgh. Ogle, Allardice, & Thomson. 1819. 338pp.

Very attractive tree calf, just some light deterioration at middle left edge of spine and at foredges and corners. Very solid and clean. A really lovely copy and even better with just a touch of TLC.
