The Wanderer

As I walked through the wilderness of this world …

Desperate crowdsourcing

Does anyone out there, anywhere in the world, have a copy of a book or pamphlet called Touchstone, which has to do with the laying on of hands on baptized persons, published about the year 1653 by Edward Harrison, once vicar of Kensworth and by this time among the Particular Baptists in London? I have tried all the libraries and private collections I can think of, and this is among my last resorts. Thank you in advance!

  1. Here’s an article from the Baptist Quarterly on this subject – http://biblicalstudies.org.uk/pdf/bq/15-5_203.pdf – may be of some interest to you and it references Harrison.

    Also the biblicalstudies.org.uk site seems to store this Baptist Quarterly and has a search option to look for information in them.

    Here’s a list of baptist theological seminaries around the world. I found it googling “oldest seminaries in the world” as I figured there would be a chance one of these really old Baptist seminaries would have this book.

    Angus Library and Archive – they claim to be the leading collection of Baptist history and heritage worldwide. I searched in their library tool, but didn’t find Harrison’s book. However, you may try contacting them as they could know how to find it elsewhere.
