Catholic thinking: issues in today’s Church
Young, John
ISBN: 0909615187
Cardinal Newman Catechist Centre Australia 1990 1st Edition
12mo Glossy Soft Cover 176 indexed pages. While each piece in this book is complete in itself, each is linked to the others to present a clear, concise discussion of many issues in today’s Church. The field is a wide one, as a glance at the table of contents will show. Dogma, the spiritual life, moral and social concerns, education, apologetics, these are all treated - lucidly, thoughtfully, sometimes provocatively. "I have endeavoured to present Catholic teaching clearly and without compromise, as it is found in the whole of our Tradition, with particular reference to the Second Vatican Council and the years since then" - from the Preface. John Young, B.Th., has written extensively for Australian and overseas journals on religion and related subjects, and has taught philosophy in Catholic seminaries. He is author of a short introduction to philosophy, REASONING THINGS OUT (also published in this series of Tracts for the Times), which has received high praise from reviewers in Australia and America.  Very Good

George Bickham
 London 1736 First Edition
Elephant Folio - over 15" - 23" tall Hard Cover The eighteenth century writing master and engraver George Bickham produced "The Universal Penman" as a collection of pages for students to copy. The work was originally published in subscription format between 1733 and 1741. This is a bound version consisting of of the first 58 pages, together with supplementary plates, making a total of 71 (including title page and page addressed to subscribers). The plates with numbers are II to XVIII. The publication dates range from the first page, addressed to the subscribers in August 1733, to the last pages p 58 and "after p 58", "Ambition" and "The Golden Mean" , dated May 1736. The collation is: title page, page addressed to subscribers, 1-44pp, after p 44, p 45, after p 45, p 46, after p 46, 47-49pp, after p 49, 50-52pp, after p 52, p 53, after p 5, after p 6, 54-55pp, after p 55, p 56, after p 56, p 57, after p 57, p 58, after p 58, blank page (detached). Thus, ignoring the detached blank endpaper, there are 71 leaves. Condition of the 71 leaves varies from good+ to very good+, though the blank detached endpaper is in poor condition, marked with some tears.. There are a couple of vertical creases and some yellowing to the first two pages, a very occasional small mark on the first 20 pages. As the book progresses there is slight spotting to some pages (see scans for examples). The covers are throroughly battered and lack a spine. An amazing example of eighteenth century engraving and of fine calligraphy. Beautiful. 1.325kg.  Good
