Meditations and Disquisitions Upon Certain Psalms
Sir Richard Baker’s beautiful and ancient volume explores 15 of the Psalms warmly and in great detail.
It has been our pleasure to have the opportunity to frequently direct our readers to some of the best Christian literature that has ever been penned, from the prison cell. This book is one of those that belongs to that long, splendid, and glorious list of “prison writings.”
This volume was Mrs. Susanna Spurgeon’s (wife of C. H. Spurgeon) conference gift, to all pastors who attended their 1885 conference at the Metropolitan Tabernacle. She was known for widely distributing literature to pastors.
- Meditations and Disquisitions upon the First (1st) Psalm of David (Psalm 1)

The book is a beautiful pale green hardcover volume, with green lettering and decoration on front cover and spine.
A Commendation from Charles H. Spurgeon
In his book Commenting and Commentaries, Spurgeon had this to say about Baker’s Meditations upon Certain Psalms:
“O rare Sir Richard Baker! Knight of the flowing pen. His Meditations and Disquisitions are altogether marrow and fatness. We have often tried to quote from him and have found ourselves so embarrassed with riches that we have been inclined to copy the whole book. Why it has not been reprinted, and made to pass through fifty editions, we cannot tell. Poor man, he became a surety and smarted, dying in poverty in the Fleet. Were there any Christians alive in those days?”
