Microfilms From The Dr. Williams Library
The Baxter Treatises
From the Papers of Richard Baxter 1615 – 1691 at Dr. Williams Library, London.
The Baxter Treatises were catalogued by Roger Thomas, and a copy of the catalogue is included with the microfilm (it can be perused before purchase). They consist of all the Richard Baxter Papers at Dr. Williams Library except the letters (which are available separately). The bulk of the material belongs to the latter half of Baxter’s life, together with personal and miscellaneous papers, and selected items subsequent to his death.
Minute Books Of The Presbyterian Fund Board 1690 – 1899
The Board originated in 1689. The aim was to assist the poorer country congregations by making grants to their ministers and to aid in the education of students of the ministry. The Minute Books commence in 1690 and are continuous to the present day, with the exception of the book covering 1760 – 1772, which has long been missing. The books covered in this microfilm give the minutes to 1899, with indexes to aid in finding any specific items.
The Correspondence Of Richard Baxter 1615 – 1691

From 1641 until his removal in 1660, he was pastor of the church at Kidderminster, where he wrote his two best known works, The Saints Everlasting Rest (1650) and Gildas Salvianus the Reformed pastor (1656). Baxter’s correspondents include some seventy of his fellow ejected ministers of 1660 – 1662, and such others as John Drury, John Eliot, Joseph Glanvill, etc.
The Oxford Movement, Tractarian Pamphlets At Pusey House: The Halifax & Church Sub-Collections
The pamphlets of E.B. Pusey reveal the strain of apostolic zeal in the movement, which is later reflected in a concern with missionary work. The pamphlet collection includes works Newman, John Keble, John Ruskin and Thomas Arnold. The importance and interest of this comprehensive collection will be apparent to scholars working in all areas of 19th century history.
