This book contains what is popularly known as 'the Westminster Standards,' among which are the Westminster Confession of Faith, Shorter Catechism, and Larger Catechism. This copy of the Standards was published by Thomas Lumisden and John Roberson in 1728. Benjamin Franklin copied this 1728 edition when he published his own edition of the Westminster Standards in 1745 (Miller, Benjamin Franklin's Philadelphia Printing, 371. Sabin, 15445). This edition contains Scriptural proofs fully quoted underneath the Confession and Catechisms. Full brown leather covers with gilt lines on the spine. 552pp. (pagination starts at number 23) plus a 23-page index of the "chief matters contained in the Confession of Faith and Larger Catechism." Appears to be missing title/publication page for the Confession of Faith (each section has a new publication page, but pagination continues from one portion to the next). Covers and spine are rubbed. Binding is tight. Spine chipped at head and foot. Hinge and joint of both covers are starting, but still holding. Has stains and dampstains throughout. Previous owner's name written on flyleaf. This book comes from the personal library of Morton H. Smith and is free from underlining or notes (neither does it contain his signature). Full refund if not satisfied.
