These are still in some libraries:
- Concordia Theological Seminary (CTS), Walther Library here
- WorldCat here shows 23 libraries worldwide with these 2 volumes, but with wrong cover picture (see my review there).
- Valparaiso University Library here
- Concordia Seminary Library, St. Louis2 (COSL) BX8011.W2913 1992 here [updated Dec. 22, 2013]
I can hardly believe this... these 2 volumes were the largest publication of English translations of Walther's convention essays.
So much of Walther's works have not been translated - several books of sermons, articles in Der Lutheraner and Lehre und Wehre, and several more essays. But at least these 2 volumes of Essays for the Church were a major work published by the modern English LC-MS... and now they are not available for purchase. But CPH sees fit to publish President Matthew Harrison's recent translations of Walther's essays and letters, a rather small sampling. And Concordia Publishing House presumes to honor Walther with their "bicentennial celebration"! Maybe someone should ask the head of CPH, chief "cyberbrethren", why the inconsistency.
