Booth (1734-1806) was an English Baptist minister, writer and Abolitionist. He started as a General (Arminianism) Baptist, but became a Particular (Calvinist) Baptist. This work was a compliment to one of his best known books, Reign of Grace.
The laid paper is bright and in good condition with no marks or foxing. Bound in blue paper-covered boards with a shellacked brown paper spine. Most of the spine is gone. The part left has a hand-written title "Legal Hope" in an early hand. The front cover is still tight, but the hinge of the back cover has worn through and is just holding on by the cords. The book is protected in a well made custom slipcase covered by brown marbled paper on the sides, with a small green label with the title "Death of Legal Hope" stamped in gilt.
A previous owner's bookplate is pasted to the inside front cover. The somewhat roughly cut (but not deckled) page edges are slightly browned.
An Ex-Library copy. The markings are a large red stamp for Waterville College Libary in the middle of the title page, the words "Coll. Lib" inscribed in an early 19th century hand at the top of the title page, an unfortunate 1/2" square marked by a felt marker touching the bottom of the "L" in "Lib." and a "Colby College Library Withdrawn" stamp on the rear free end paper. There is also a stamped accession number on the bottom of the verso of the title page and the stamped date "Oct 18 1940" below it.
