At the end of the 17th century he visited Maryland in the American Colonies and found religion poor & disorganised .He returned to England, obtained a charter from King William III, in 1701. The charter established SPG as an organisation able to send priests and schoolteachers to America to help provide the church's ministry to the colonists and to take the message of the gospel to the slaves and native Americans. It also made a substantial contribution to the foundation of the Episcopal Church. The King's Messengers was most likely named after the 1701 King William III Charter and started in 1905, A monthly magazine of mostly 12 pages per month. This book contains 4 and a half years. * Looks complete, no signs of loss, Though no sign of Title, Index or list Pages being ever being bound in after 1914. This looks like a uniquely bound volume of Missionary work around the world.

London W. K. Wakefield 1828 First Edition 14 x 22 Cm approx 
First Edition. 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Approx. VERY RARE Tome comprising a book, 521pages of the 1st. 24 issues of The Soldier's Magazine .after Title page , is Vol 1- No.1 January 1828 ( to December) 228pages then Vol 2 -No.1 January 1829 (to Dec.) 284 page then 8 page list of contents of Vol.ll,..Condition generally very good Original 1/4 leather & mottled boards, minor rubbing.contents vey good ( with minor faults of staining/slight loss to end-pages only) a good/tight book with very minimal sign's of use. NO inscriptions .The title page states "The Soldier's and Sailors Magazine" ( and Sailor's has been crossed out as it was a printing mistake). NO named Author but "conducted by the late editor of the sailor's magazine." who would appear to be Tom Starboard , and therefore overtly theological, so may have been why i could not find another copy anywhere, let alone for sale. the Vol 1 -- 1828 ( but contains vol 1 & Vol.2 1828 &1829)and sold by W.Sams bookseller to the King and others.contains lots of details inc. a breakdown of the costs of the Army.Possibly Unique as the National Army Museum has not heard of it and it's not listed in Fredrick Lake's 4 vol set on the British Army journals/publications, or in British Lib site. So the magazine may have only lasted the 2 years contained in this tome !!!!! ( see also my book 000612 the Sailor's Magazine for all of 1820 )
