Originally published in 1911. This series of biographical sketches is based upon original sources as far as these are now available. Among such sources are included the minutes and other records of presbyteries, synods, and assemblies, autobiographical statements and personal letters incorporated in some of the formal biographies....This early works will appeal greatly to any historian. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900's and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
