Naphtali Press Special Editions

For over thirty years Naphtali Press (NP) has published fine quality editions of Puritan, Presbyterian and Reformed literature. Naphtali Press Special Editions (NPSE) is a series of books co-published by NP and Reformation Heritage Books (RHB). RHB handles production and sales of the titles, while NP creates the text to be published. This involves significant development costs and hearkening back to the days of subscription based and even older era of patron supported publication, NPSE relies on annual sponsor drives to raise the funds to create these texts. Sponsors at the several levels offered receive copies of all titles produced that year, a custom bookplate and recognition in the front sponsorship section of each volume, as well as other ‘rewards’ depending on sponsorship level. Sponsorship of NPSE makes it possible to publish puritan classics never yet republished, or undertake first time translation work, or transcription and editing for first time publication works still remaining in manuscripts. If NPSE can continue to increase the number of sponsors each year to more significant levels, more complex, costly and multiyear projects can be undertaken.

NPSE 2022-23 Sponsorship

Naphtali Press Special Editions enters its foruth year and it is time to renew and to seek additional sponsors for the 2022-23 Series. If you are receiving or viewing this notice it is because you have sponsored the past years or expressed interest in or saw a notice about sponsoring this year. As you know, NPSE titles are co-published with Reformation Heritage Books, but the cost to develop the texts must be raised by annual sponsorship. Through this means NPSE can undertake labor intensive critical texts, transcription work from centuries old manuscripts or first time translations of important Reformed and Presbyterian works. We have produced or have in production seven titles over the last three series years in this way (see past year's titles here.), including a massive three volume edition of James Durham's Commentary upon Revelation, A seventh title, a first time translation from the Latin of Gisbertus Voetius's On the Sabbath and Feast Day, has progressed slowly and is now slated to appear in the latter half of 2023 if not earlier. If you sponsored for 2020-21 and 2021-22 you will receive the Voetius when published, and new sponsors for 2022-23 will also receive a copy. The goal this year is: 1. To complete Gillespie's Shorter Writings with the third and final volume. 2. We will produce a new more critical edition of James Durham's Lectures on Song of Solomon. This will mean Naphtali Press will have done new editions of all of Durham's works with the completion of Song of Solomon. The funding goal for 2022-23 is a minimum of $24,000 and with the hope we can again increase the number of sponsors and get NPSE on a stable trajectory that can include even more ambitious projects. Below are the regular and higher level sponsorships. Some are familiar; some are new and exciting!

Portrait Miniature "Plus" Level

NPSE is pleased to be able to offer again a portrait project by David Gillespie. Two year's ago the proposed portrait of George Gillespie was snatched up immediately and it was finally finished in September 2021. It is a beautiful and unique thing. See David's bona fides at Pumpkin Town Primitives. David has given NPSE a significant break on the cost to be able to offer again a proposal to craft a portrait of another consequential historical figure in Scottish Presbyterian history.
