Rather rare on the market, an early edition of the Poor Man's Morning Portion and the Poor Man's Evening Portion in matching bindings. 

Spurgeon said of Hawker's works [speaking here of his similarly veined commentary],  “Gentlemen, if you want something full of marrow and fatness, cheering to your own hearts by way of comment, and likely to help you in giving to your hearers rich expositions, buy Dr. Hawker . . . he sees Jesus, and that is a sacred gift which is most precious.” 

This copy has with loose an excerpted account of the death of Hawker from The Sower magazine, of the Calvinistic Baptists, and is then inscribed to Esther Row from John Grace. Grace was prominent among the Calvinistic Baptists of the mid-19th century, a correspondent of J. C. Philpot [See here: A Letter To John Grace – August 31st, 1860 | Jesus is LORD! (justifiedbychristalone.com)]. Philpot wrote a memoir of him at his death in 1865. [See here: Memoir of the late Mr John Grace (truegospel.net)]
