Notes

First edition, in the original parts (including Appendix). Roused by a clumsy attack on him by the Rev. Charles Kingsley, author of The Water-Babies, Newman now decided "to write an apologia for his conversion, which would finally convince the protestant public that he had not been an agent for popery as a Tractarian and that his submission to Rome was entirely sincere In the last chapter Newman undertook a general defence of Catholicism Not only was the Apologia a best-seller, making Newman financially secure for the first time since he became a Catholic, but the reviews were almost universally favourable, especially the nonconformist ones" (ODNB). While relatively common in book-form, this work is scarce in parts.
