[New Jersey]: [1862, 1867]. A handwritten notebook containing a compilation of Columbian College faculty member and president George Whitefield Samson’s theological lectures delivered in October 1862, transcribed by Leonidas Coyle (1840-1906) while he was attending the college. Samson (1819-1896) served as president of Columbian College, later George Washington University, during the critical years of the Civil War. He was also the pastor at DC’s E Street Baptist Church. Samson was a noted author of several books and monographs on theology and spiritualism. It appears that the lectures were compiled into this volume later as Coyle signs and dates the free endpaper in December 1867. He also labels the book with his name and the name Princeton Theological Seminary - probably written in the book when Coyle was a tutor at the Seminary. He became the pastor of the First Presbyterian Church of Bridgeton, New Jersey. He was born in Washington DC and died there at the age of 64 while visiting his sisters. His home in Bridgeton is now a bed and breakfast. The transcribed lectures were first written on the recto side of 6 x 7.5 inch notepaper, then turned over and upside down to continue on the verso. There is also a four-page insert written on 4 x 5 yellow paper. The lectures are written in a fine hand primarily in ink but with a few pages also in pencil. On a few pages a different person has written in large blue pencil the name of the book of the Bible discussed in that lecture. Otherwise the pages are in very good condition save for the free endpapers, which have offsetting in the front and glue stains in the rear including on the title page. There are also a few pencil drawings by Coyle, who was an amateur artist/cartoonist. The book’s binding is not in good condition. The boards are detached and the marbled paper covers are chipped, worn, and bumped; the leather spine is mostly worn away, exposing the signatures. Still an interesting piece of Americana. Unpaginated [86 pages plus 4 page insert]. REL/071117.
