THERE are few conversant with the Works of the Scottish Reformers who do not appreciate the talent and learning, and admire the style of composition and eloquence displayed in the writings of GEORGE GILLESPIE. As his works have always been held in high estimation, and have been long exceedingly rare, and, consequently, high in price, the publication of a Complete Edition of his Works has been suggested by several Gentlemen of judgment and discrimination.
With that object in view the Publisher now issues his “ Aaron's Rod Blossoming," which will be immediately followed by his “ Dispute against English Popish Ceremonies," and "A Treatise of Miscellany Questions,” together with his “ Journal of the Westminster Assembly of Divines,” (a work which has never before been printed,) and his Minor Controversial Pieces and Sermons. An Account of his Life and Writings, to form a prefix, will also be published, together with Title-page, Index, &c., to complete the Work.
It is expected that the Series will form One large handsome Volume, printed in a superior manner; and the Public will thus have in a collected form, for the first time, the Complete Writings of one of the greatest ornaments of our Church.
