Richard Baxter's "Poorest" Library

In Richard Baxter's A Christian Directory (1673), he provides a list of recommended books that in his view ought to be found in "the poorest or smallest [pastoral] library that is tolerable." In a Word document that is nine pages long, I have reproduced the list as he wrote it, with further commentary, and annotations, footnoting each of the authors he recommends in an effort to help interested readers today learn more about the books that Baxter thought to be important for pastoral study.
