Sold with all faults. *** An abridgement of Richard Baxter's Narrative of my Life and Times, which contains an account of the many ministers who were ejected in 1662 after the restoration of Charles II, their apology, containing the grounds of their nonconformity and practice as to stated and occasional communion with the Church of England; and a continuation of their history until the year 1691. This work was published in 1702. The most important chapter (ix.) is that which gives a detailed account of the ministers ejected in 1662; it was afterwards published as a distinct volume. ***.
