Book Description Morgan & Scott. [1865], 1865. FIRST EDITION. Front., 2pp ads; paper sl. browning. Orig. brown cloth, pictorially blocked in black, lettered in gilt. v.g. Not in BL. 'Though feeling conscious that my little work is an insignificant contribution to their weal, I nevertheless cherish the hope that some, who would be uninterested by more elaborate descriptions of conventualism as it really is, and equally unmoved by personal narratives, which they are too apt to regard as the testimony of apostates, may, by this unpretending appeal to their internal consciousness, be led to reflection, and ultimately saved.'.
