Leather over boards binding is heavily worn and scuffed. Leather spine has gold lettering that says "Pope and Maguire Discussion. Rear hinge at bottom of spine beginning to crack. THe title page? is handwritten and half of it is missing. It says something about Dublin, 1852 which could mean it is not a title page but a tipped in page after publication. This is suspicioned as there is an original handwritten certification by Pope and Maguire, hand dated 1827 that follows the Introductory statement pages. There is a rubber stamp that says "The Library The Abby Galway" inside cover and on endpaper. No card or other library markings or damage as usually found in xlib books. The first full page of print is the Introductory Statement talking about how the debate was to be carried out, the limiting points of each person. Mr. Pope: 1st Infallibility, 2nd Purgatory and 3rd Transubstantiation. Mr. Maguire: 1st, The divine right of private judgement to promice upon the authenticity, integrity, and canonicity of Scripture and to determine its meaning in articles of faith, 2- The Justification of the Reformation, 3rd- The Protestant Churches do not possess that unity which forms the distincitive mark of the true Church of Christ. The introductory statement also set out other articles of agreement made the 11th of April 1827 at the home of Mr. Tims, in Graftonstreet attended by both debaters. The Chair representing the Protestant was Admiral Oliver and the Roman Catholic was Daniel O'Connell, Esq. It was decided to hold the debate at the Lecture-Room of the Dublin Institution, Sackville street for the six day debate. The Text for the full debate is complete and has soiling and yellowing to the pages due to age. A rare and special addition to the book is the handwritten and hand signed certifications by both Mr. Maguire and Mr. Pope done on June 14, 1827 as to the authenticity of the debate published by Coyne, Tims, & Curry that it "is alone authentic". Both certifications and signatures are hand signed and attested by James Sheridan and Philip Hardy. It appears that the edges have been trimmed as they are not unevenly cut, but smooth, and that some of the marginial notations of a former owner are not fully legible due to the cut.The discussion is complete and ends on page 370 which has about a 1/8th portion of the page missing not detrimental to the text. This is a rare and perhaps unique copy of this debate, especially with the original signatures of Messrs. Pope, Maguire, Sheridan and Hardy. Rare.; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 370 pages; Signed by Associated
