EDWARD BOUVERIE PUSEY (1800-1882) was an English Anglican theologian. He was a British divine leader of the High Church and Tractarian movement. He was a professor of Hebrew at Oxford in 1828 and inspired public sympathy when condemned and suspended as University preacher for heresy on connection with a sermon. Pusey House, a theological center in Oxford, is a memorial to his life and work. At one point, Pusey appealed for sympathy to the Wesleyan Conference and received a harsh rebuff. One of his sermons was so controversial that he was banned from preaching for two years. This lot includes a magazine copy of a cartoon involving Pusey and the issue.
The highlight is a one-page diminutive ALS on Christ Church Oxford stationary, 3 ½ x 4 ½, June 21, 1878, “I do not know how I can mistake the days of the week, but I have been under the impression that yesterday was Friday and today Saturday. I will therefore (unless you have arranged otherwise) expect your young Miss tomorrow, as you said. You will excuse the involuntary blunder of my work this morning. Yours very faithfully E.B. Pusey”
Folds but in overall very good condition.
