Description:
Boston: Wells and Lilly, 1823. First Edition. Softcover. Very good. 24 pp. Original plain green wrappers, stitched. Contemporary ink ownership signature of "G. Bond" on front wrapper. Wrappers lightly chipped at spine ends and corners, light soiling to front wrapper and extreme fore-edge, else near fine. An anti-Calvinist pamphlet from the Unitarian Controversy of 1805-1835, insisting upon "right of thought" and separation of church and state as fundamentally Christian principles. The author targets Massachusetts's "orthodox party" of Congregationalist clergy as heirs to Constantine and Rome in their abuses of Christianity and mental enslavement of their churches' laity. Sabin attributes the work to John Lowell, Jr. (1769-1840), the prominent Federalist Massachusetts lawyer, prolific pseudonymous pamphleteer, and author several years earlier of "Are You a Christian or a Calvinist?" Sabin 42457.

The "deluxe" edition of a satirical poem composed by Christopher Morley and designed and printed by Lew Ney to help their friend and patron, Frances Steloff, founder and owner of Gotham Book Mart, during a moment of financial insecurity at the store in the mid-1930s.

"He asked why I looked so glum, and I told him… Read more
