Very Good. Book A scarce set of of volumes taken from Matthew Henry's renowned commentary of the Bible, being the complete set of his exposition of the New Testament. Eighth edition. Wherein each chapter summed up in its contents; the sacred text inserted at large in distinct paragraphs; each paragraph reduced to its proper heads' the sense given, and largely illustrated: with practical remarks and observations. Matthew Henry was an English commentator on the Bible and Presbyterian minister. Matthew Henry's well-known six-volume Exposition of the Old and New Testaments (17081710) or Complete Commentary, provides an exhaustive verse by verse study of the Bible. Covering the whole of the Old Testament, and these two volumes; theGospels and Acts in the New Testament. After the author's death, the work was finished (Romans through Revelation) by thirteen other nonconformist ministers, mainly based upon notes taken by Henry's hearers. Complete in two volumes, forming volumes five and six of Matthew Henry's An Exposition of the Old and New Testaments. Condition: Bound in contemporary tree calf bindings with gilt detailing to the spines. Externally, both volumes are a trifle rubbed with wear to the extremities. Both front joints are starting. Internally, both volumes are firmly bound and intermittently bright. Instances of scattered foxing throughout each volume. Marginal tide marks to the first and last few leaves of volume two. Evidence of past worming to the rear pastedown of both volumes. Neat copperplate ink signatures to the front free endpaper of both volumes. Overall: GOOD.
