London: Longmans, Green, 1917. First edition (NCBEL v.3, 1321). Edited by Francis Joseph Bacchus at the Birmingham Oratory. Newman founded the Birmingham Oratory in 1848, three years after converting to Roman Catholicism. Its tradition of High Mass "old rite" liturgy continues, but also offers the less conservative "Low Mass". John Henry Newman was beatified by Pope Benedict in 2010; the Oratory is soliciting testimonials of miracles on its website, in hopes that he will soon be canonized. And, in response to numerous calls from all over the world for Newman "relics", the Oratory was disappointed, after exhuming his body in 2010, nothing was left but a brass plate, coffin handles, and replica of his cardinal's hat, a small "wooden crucifix inlaid with silver, and one small fragment of bone." (see the Birmingham Oratory website). This volume with the ownership signature of Geoffrey Tillotson dated 1947, with numerous penciled annotations throughout. Tillotson (1906-1969), Professor of English at Birkbeck College, University of London. Cocked, spine sunned, no wear at all. A Very Good copy.
