Sermons: (I) On the Death of Faithful Ministers; (II) On War and Revolutions: (III) To the Aged
by Lawson, George (1749-1820)
Hawick, Scotland: Robert Armstrong (printer), 1810. Octavo. 367p. When John Brown of Haddington died, the Church of Scotland immediately appointed George Lawson who had memorized the entire Bible including much of it in Greek and Hebrew. Originally, he was famous for his expositions on the Book of Esther, Ruth, and the Loose Woman described in Proverbs. This work which dealt with the meaning of death as the servants of God died as well as the issues of the Christian in war and in the midst of civil discord (or revolution), but also how those of advanced age shall reflect on God's best in spite of their long memories of the folly and sinful pursuits of their entire life. He speaks of the horrors that Adam must have experienced in a long life rooted in his monumental part in the fall of man. He balances this also by showing how the young should honor their aged parents instead of thinking only of their own wretched lives in the present. Only four copies reported in OCLC. Bound in 3/4 calf over marbled paper covered boards, decorative rules to spine in blind, general wear to spine and corners, occasional spots of foxing. A very good copy.
