We have Matthew Henry's Commentary, but what about his other works, particularly A Method for Prayer with Scripture Expressions Proper to Be Used under Each Head and Directions for Daily Communion with God.

There was an 1855 edition of his Complete Works, which is only two volumes, and was reprinted by Baker in 1979. Attic Press also published the two books referred to above, in 1988.

There are also at least a couple of public domain biographies that you could add:

The final memoir was republished by Banner of Truth in 1974 in The Lives of Philip and Matthew Henry.

Here's a table of contents of the two-volume work:

  • The Pleasantness of a Religious Life
  • Sobermindedness pressed upon young people
  • Four discourses against vice and profaneness
  • Self consideration necessary to self preservation
  • Directions for daily communion with God
