The book has been attributed to A. W. Mitchell, M.D., but it is not obvious that he was the author. Mitchell was the treasurer for the Presbyterian Board of Publications (Old School) from about 1840 to 1855, and one of his responsibilities was to secure the copyrights for the Board's publications. Consequently, his name appears in many copyrights, as it does for this book.
