[bound with] Proud, Joseph. An impartial account of a public disputation on water baptism, held on the 25th day of October, 1787 ... between John Bousell ... and Joseph Proud, with some further observations in vindication of that sacred ordinance. Norwich: Printed by Crouse and Co., . 8vo. iv, 32 pp.
The first is an uncommon anti-Methodist tract and the second is a very rare work on baptism and the role of water.
Both works are uncommon or rare: ESTC locates only 4 copies of Kingsford in the U.S. and only 1 of Proud.
Kingsford: ESTC T2501. Proud: ESTC N16843. 19th-century quarter sheep with marbled paper sides. Ex-library with call number tag on front cover, bookplate on front pastedown, call number in pencil on verso of title-page. Title-page of Proud very darkened, that of Kingsford cut down and only a bit less dark. Stray stains. Very decent copies of apparently rare publications. (Inventory #: 19747)
