Item is a reissue of the Appendix to Sermon before the Young Men's Missionary Society of Richmond (1819.048), with new title page; title-page text details the elements herein. The abbreviated work was apparently designed to publicize this new missionary effort. Only known copy is held in the special collections of the Virginia Historical Society. Formed in 1818 under the auspices of John Holt Rice, a prominent Presbyterian evangelical and religious editor, the society's members included the Richmond print-trade figures John Boyce (bookseller), Philip DuVal (printer-publisher), William Lownes (bookbinder), and Nathan Pollard (printer-publisher); this title appears to be Pollard's introduction to the trade, as he succeeded Gray as proprietor of the Franklin Press about a year after this item issued.
