Scarce, particularly in the First Edition and in such a handsome binding. Rev. Richard Cecil (1748-1810) was the rector of Bisley, Vicar of Chobham in Surrey and Minister of St John’s Chapel in Bedford Row, London. As a leading Evangelical Anglican, he was associated with the progressive Clapham Sect, whose members included William Wilberforce. Heavyweight, so a contribution towards increased postage costs will be requested for overseas delivery.
