Lexington, KY: A.T. Skillman & Son, 1844.
First Edition. Hardcover. Good. Title continues: "Also, on the Character of Spiritual Influence in Conversion and Sanctification, and on the Expediency and Tendency of Ecclesiastic Creeds, as terms of Union and Communion: Held in Lexington, KY., from the Fifteenth of November to the Second of December, 1843, a Period of Eighteen Days. Reported by Marcus T. C. Gould, Stenographer, Assisted by A. Euclid Drapier, Stenographer, and Amanuensis." 912 pp, in original purple cloth boards with paper spine label. Label rubbed and chipped, spine faded to brown, boards somewhat rubbed and soiled, light foxing throughout, old dampstain visible on first and last few pages; all that said, still a good, sound copy of an important book that is scarce in the first edition. Signature of H.S. Campbell on title page and first text page, with a sheet torn from a 19th century directory laid in, showing that H. [Henry] S. Campbell was the proprietor of a dry goods and grocery store in Gainesville, Georgia. We find no indication that he was related to Alexander Campbell, but did locate a note in an 1845 edition of the Millennial Harbinger indicating he was a subscriber, as well as mention in a more recent book that he was a finanical contributor to the first Georgia state convention of the Disciples of Christ, around 1849.
