The elder Ryland owned a copy of The Life of Edwards, which he lent to his son. Before returning it to his father, Ryland, Jr. wrote on the pastedown cover in 1773 that this book was about "the greatest, wisest, humblest, and holyest of uninspired men!" "If ever I lend it," he exclaimed, "I desire the utmost care may be taken of it."
On the inside cover of his copy of The Life of Brainerd, Ryland, Jr. wrote that he "prizes" this book "above almost all others."
I thank Mike Brealey, librarian at Bristol Baptist College in England, for granting me permission to post these images on my blog.
