Old but Good Books from Google

There are a remarkable number of good old books available in whole or in part at Google Books. Here is a list of a few that I have come across recently.

I’ll begin with the what seems to me to be the gem of the collection (links are to Google Books except as noted otherwise):

Ridgley, Thomas – A Body of Divinity, being the substance of Lectures on the Larger Catechism (vol. 1)(vol. 1 – second copy); (vol 2)(vol. 2 – second copy) (pdf/txt/main from Archive); (vol. 3); and (vol. 4)(vol. 4 – second copy)

Watson, Thomas – A Body of Practical Divinity, Consisting of more than 170 Sermons on the Shorter Catechism, 4th Edition (link)

Tenison, Thomas – Popery Not Founded on Scripture (vol. 2)

Usher, James – Eighteen Sermons Preached in Oxford (link)

Gillespie, George – Treatise of Miscellany Questions (link)

Charnock, Stephen – Two Discourse: Of Man’s Emnity to God; and Of the Salvation of Sinners (link)

Sedgwick, Obadiah – Humbled Sinner Resolved what he should do to be Saved (link)

Beveridge, William – Theological Thesaurus (link)

Mather, Samuel – The Figures or Types of the Old Testament by which Christ and the Heavenly Things of the Gospel were Preached and Shadowed to the People of God of Old (link)

I cannot vouch for every word of each book, but they are generally books that have proven their worth over time.
