Manchester Series of Cheap Tracts

Greg said ...
Just added a number of items from this series but they uploaded into the anonymous author section. I was interested to note that JND's "Exposition of the Epistle to the Romans" (see Collected Writings vol.26 p.113) was written especially for the "Manchester Series". It's #98 in the series.

Of the other items, many seem to have been edited from other publications - evidently for mass distribution at low cost.

Does anyone know more about this series? Who spear-headed it? Who was responsible for editing the pre-existing writings? How long did it run? How effective was it?

The item I labelled "000 - Revised List of Manchester Tracts" I found appended to a tract by William Kelly (The Christian Calling and Hope) which itself was not one of the numbered series.

If anyone finds additional items in their collection, please upload them.
