LAW, William. The spirit of prayer or, the soul rising out of the vanity of time into the riches of eternity.

London. Griffith Farran & Co., [1893].

[Bound with:] LAW, William. The spirit of love: in dialogues. London. Griffith Farran & Co., [1893]. 185pp, [1].

8vo. Contemporary gilt-tooled dark green morocco, A.E.G. Lightly rubbed and sunned. Marbled endpapers, leaves toned.
A handsomely bound pairing of nonjuror William Law's (1686-1761) most popular devotional works in which he develops his fundamental idea that the spirit of God is within and can be regained by all who are willing to learn how to find it. One of the functions of the dialogues is to show the irrelevance of contemporary arguments about the reasonableness and evidences of Christianity and to wean the academic reader from books to the spirit within.
