10 Barclay, Robert A treatise on church government, Formerly called Anarchy of the Ranters, &c., being a two-fold apology for the church and people of God, called in ... good order and discipline in the church
Philadelphia PA S. W. Conrad 1822 Later Printing; First Impression Hardcover Good with no dust jacket 
The original 1822 edition. Leather cover worn but contents tight and complete. Some foxing to pages. "Being a two-fold apology for the church and people of God called, in derision, Quakers. To which is added and epistle to the National meeting of Friends in Dublin concerning good order and discipline in the church" Very Rare. We provide delivery tracking on US orders. Robert Barclay (23 December 1648 – 3 October 1690) was a Scottish Quaker, one of the most eminent writers belonging to the Religious Society of Friends and a member of the Clan Barclay. He was also governor of the East Jersey colony in North America through most of the 1680s, although he himself never resided in the colony. The Ranters were one of a number of nonconformist dissenting groups that emerged around the time of the English Commonwealth (1649–1660). They were largely common people, and there is plenty of evidence that the movement was widespread throughout England, though they were not organised and had no leader.[Wikipedia]Ranters were regarded as heretical by the established Church and seem to have been regarded by the government as a threat to social order. They denied the authority of churches, of scripture, of the current ministry and of services, instead calling on men to listen to the divine within them. In many ways they resemble the 14th century Brethren of the Free Spirit. Rare.; 12mo 7" - 7˝" tall; 124 pages

An essay on the divine authority of the New Testament, Bogue, David
20 Bogue, David An essay on the divine authority of the New Testament
Hartford Conn Printed by Hudson and Goodwin 1806 First American Edition; First Impression Hardcover Good with no dust jacket 
Original 1806 printing from the second London Edition. Very worn leather boards. Hinges cracking but not seperated. Contents shows browning due to age. Clean otherwise. David Bogue (18 February 1750 – 25 October 1825) was a British nonconformist leader.He was born in the parish of Coldingham, Berwickshire, Scotland. After a course of study in Edinburgh, he was licensed to preach by the Church of Scotland, but made his way to London in 1771, to teach in schools at Edmonton, Hampstead and Camberwell. In 1777, he settled as minister of the Congregational church at Gosport in Hampshire.[1] His predecessors at the Independent Chapel of Gosport were the Rev. James Watson (1770–76) and the Rev. Thomas Williams (1750–70).[2]In 1771 he established an institution for preparing men for the ministry.[3][4] It was the age of the new-born missionary enterprise, and Bogue's academy was largely the seed from which the London Missionary Society grew.[5] In 1800 the society placed missionaries with Bogue for preparation for their ministries.[6] Bogue himself would have gone to India in 1796 if not for the opposition of the East India Company.[5] In 1824 he taught Samuel Dyer at Gosport before he left for Penang as a missionary with the London Missionary Society.[3]He was also involved in founding the British and Foreign Bible Society and the Religious Tract Society, and in conjunction with James Bennett, minister at Romsey, wrote a well-known History of Dissenters (3 vols., 1809). Another of his writings was an Essay on the Divine Authority of the New Testament.[5] He died at Brighton.[3] We provide delivery tracking to all US orders.
