About this Item

x, 107 p.; front. (port.); 18 cm. 'The phrase "farthing rushlight" was Gifford's own description of himself as a young man. He was in truth rather more than that and sent forth a steady glow and radiance which are reflected in these pages.' (from Foreword by Ernest A. Payne, p. [vii]) -- 'But Fuller's modification of the Calvinism held by some Particular Baptists enabling him to bring alive a strong impulse towards the evangelization of mankind and to provide a theological justification for it was not wholly new. Fuller's work was made possible in part because men like Gifford had held this attitude in the earlier part of the eighteenth century.' (p. 104) -- Sources of information about Gifford, listed on p. 105-07: 1. manuscript material, 6 items; 2. portraits, 4; 3. publications by Gifford, 6; printed references to Gifford, 17. VG, sewn, in lt. edgeworn orig. blue wrapper. Unread copy. Bookseller Inventory # 016596
