HOLE, Charles, DIXON, Richard Watson and LLOYD, Julius.
Three Essays on the Maintenance of the Church of England As an Established Church. To Whom the Prizes Offered by Henry W. Peek, Esq., M.P., Were Awarded by the Judges.

pp. xvi, 581, (i) blank, (ii) Welsh Translation of Mr. Peek's Proposal, 16 Catalogue. Original cloth, wearing at spine ends and edges, contents clean.

*The three prizes were £400, £200 and £100, considerable sums in 1874. Depending upon the criteria chosen, the value of those figures in today's terms would vary between c.£31,000 and c.£246, 000 for the first prize of £400. Essayists were canvassed throughout England and Wales, hence the translation of Peek's Proposal into Welsh.
