Brief statement of the case of the New Church of St. Thomas, Douglas, Isle of Mann

Douglas, Isle of Mann: R. H. Johnson, 1848. Quarto bifolium; previous fold, minor wrinkles and one small chip in the middle of the gutter. The first page containing text for an appeal for funds to finish constructing the new church ("the building is now roofed in, and excepting the spire, complete externally"). Tragically, "In consequence of the death of the contractor, who was killed by a fall, whilst engaged in procuring stone for the building...the cost of this church has considerably exceeded the original estimate." In a plea, Archdeacon Moore writes: "SEVEN HUNDRED POUNDS TO FINISH THIS HOUSE OF GOD !!!" Pages 2-4 list previous contributors - a prodigious list of local residents in triple column, each with the amount of the gift. Not located bibliographically and presumably unrecorded. Item #50279

Price: $250.00
