First American edition, enlarged and improved from the London copy; Griggs & Dickinsons, Printers. 24mo, full leather, 287 pages. VERY GOOD condition: a bookplate of The Society for Religious Inquiry has been partially removed from the front pastedown - this book was part of the library and is numbered 231on the front endpaper; light wear to edges, floxing stains to front and rear pastedowns, otherwise internally very clean and tight. A nice copy.
