xiv, 191 pages. Preface by the Rev. J.C. Ryle. Scarce copy of this relatively early work (for him and for the controversy) of this mathematician, linguist, priest. Written in the year Wickes became Secretary of the Colonial and Continental Church Society, on behalf of the lobby to depose John William Colenso and his promulgation of questioning aspects of authority and interpretation in the Pentateuch and the Book of Joshua. As Wickes (like Colenso) was well versed in sacred Near Eastern languages, this is indeed a detailed reply. Ryle's preface is detailed in its incredulity that Colenso has not already been ousted. This copy is especially pleasing for the presentation inscription from Wickes to Rev. Joseph Alexander, opposite title page. Below that is the 1869 inscription from Ann Alexander to Rev. Gelling. Front board just a touch loose but holding fine; spine sunned and chipped as seen; clean endpapers; foxing to some pages as well as penciling to margins (last scan shows the worst of this).
