Meyrick on the controversy between Kingsley and Newman.

Exhibited: Grolier Club, Essential Parts, 1996, p 38.

FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL PARTS OF THE APOLOGIA, together with Kingsley's original pamphlet that caused Newman to respond, as well as Newman's summation of their correspondence, which doesn't appear in the book form issue of the work, but is referred to in its title page, and another pamphlet on this controversy. The parts edition of this work is of particular importance since it includes the lengthy passages relating directly to Charles Kingsley, the Anglican priest who provided the impetus for the present work by declaring in print that "Truth, for its own sake had never been a virtue with the Roman clergy." "A classic from the day it was completed, the 'Apologia' will ever be the chief authority for Newman's early thoughts, and for his judgment on the great religious revival known as the Oxford Movement, of which he was the guide, the philosopher, and the martyr" (Catholic Encyclopedia).
