The Due right of Presbyteries or, a Peaceable Plea for the Government of the Church of Scotland, by the Scottish Presbyterian minister and theologian, Samuel Rutherford (1600-1661).

Published in London by E. Griffin, for Richard Whittaker and Andrew Crook, in 1644.

This is an ex-library copy, in worn, full leather binding.  It’s in its original boards, with re-backed spine, repaired corners and hinges.  An ink stain affects the title page and preface pages; there is slight worming and heavy foxing.   We offer the book at $895.00.   Further details and photos available upon request.
