A Survey Of The Life And Work Of Jesus Christ
Roberts Brothers, 1868. FIRST EDITION, second printing. Very good condition, tightly bound, clean pages, neat former owner name, slight lean, corners and edges bumped and scuffed. Gilt spine title still legible. "The historian John Robert Seeley published, anonymously, his "Ecce Homo," an attempt to present the life and work of Christ in a simple and positive form; the book provoked an unintended storm of controversy, as it was held to imply a denial of certain fundamental doctrines of Christianity." 355 pages.
