Beschreibung:

B00ADVO7MS 1780 first edition, 'Printed by John Bryce, and sold by him at his shop' (Glasgow, Scotland), 4 5/8 x 7 7/8 inches tall full leather bound, faded gilt-lettered red leather label to spine, xxiv, 512, 519-530, 152, [4] pp. In addition to the primary title page at the beginning of the volume, 'Some considerations' [on the dangers of apostacy] has a separate title page at p. 489 but continuous pagination and register, and 'A collection of very valuable sermons' has separate titlepage, pagination and register. The collection ends with a list of subscribers and publisher's ads. Slight soiling and moderate to heavy rubbing and edgewear to covers. Two-inch gouge to surface of bottom of front cover. Cracking to top inch of exterior hinges of front and rear covers, with significant chipping to the top spine cap. Prior owner bookplate to front pastedown. Contemporary ink prior owner names and heavy soiling and creasing to blank front free-endpaper. Title page has moderate to heavy foxing and soiling, with a prior owner name to the top margin. Occasional light to moderate soiling and foxing throughout. Lacks blank rear free-endpaper, but is otherwise complete. Chipping and pencil marks to rear pastedown. Despite these faults, nonetheless a good, complete first edition copy of this important an account of the Church of Scotland between 1681 and 1691, focusing on of the militant presbyterian radicals of the United Societies (later Covenanters), in their confrontation with the Restoration regime of Charles II and James VII in Scotland. The English Short Title Catalog (No. T145416) locates only four copies at U.S. institutions - at Harvard, Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Pittsburgh Theological Seminary and Union Theological Seminary in New York. ~TT~ This important work was written by Michael Shields, the clerk of the United Societies' General Convention from December 1682 until 1690. Shields was the brother of the Societies' minister, Alexander Shields, and was a writer in Edinburgh. It was written at some point after 1690 and before Shields' possible death on the Darien Scheme, possibly as a vindication of the Societies' actions, but it was not published until 1780 when John Howie of Lochgoin put it in the public domain. It requires careful reading, as Shields shaped the narrative to conceal embarassing information, but as a source for the Societies it is without parallel. The Killing Time was a period of conflict in Scottish history between the Presbyterian Covenanter movement, based largely in the south west of the country, and the government forces of Kings Charles II and James VII. The period, roughly from 1680 to the Glorious Revolution of 1688, was subsequently called The Killing Time by Robert Wodrow in his The History of the Sufferings of the Church of Scotland from the Restoration to the Revolution, published in 1721-22. It is an important episode in the martyrology of the Church of Scotland. Shields' work was here edited by renowned Scottish biographer John Howie (1735-1793), who is best remembered for his Lives of the Protestant Worthies of Scotland, first published in 1775.
