Remarks on the Slavery Question In a Letter to Jonathan Phillips, Esq., Channing, William E.
28 Channing, William E. Remarks on the Slavery Question In a Letter to Jonathan Phillips, Esq.
Boston, MA James Munroe and Co. 1839 First Edition; First Impression Paperback Good with No dust jacket as issued 
Brown paper cover with handwritten title. Endpaper missing thus book starts with Title page. Yellowing and some foxing to pages due to age. This is the original 1839 printing and not a reprint or digital printing. This book is culturally important as it discloses the slavery question early in the century and may be considered as one of the primary source publications on the subject of African American's and slavery. It was written by William Ellery Channing (April 7, 1780 October 2, 1842) was the foremost Unitarian preacher in the United States in the early nineteenth century and along with Andrews Norton, (1786-1853), one of Unitarianism's leading theologians. He was known for his articulate and impassioned sermons and public speeches, and as a prominent thinker in the liberal theology of the day. Channing's religion and thought were among the chief influences on the New England Transcendentalists, though he never countenanced their views, which he saw as extreme. The beliefs he espoused, especially within his "Baltimore Sermon[1]" of May 5, 1819, at the ordination of a future famous theologian and educator in his own right, Jared Sparks, (1789-1866), as the first minister (1819-1823) of the newly organized (1817) "First Independent Church of Baltimore" (later the "First Unitarian Church of Baltimore (Unitarian and Universalist)"). Here he espoused his principles and tenets of the developing philosophy and theology of "Unitarianism" resulted in the organization later in 1825 of the first Unitarian denomination in America (American Unitarian Association) and the later developments and mergers between Unitarians and Universalists resulting finally in the Unitarian Universalist Association of America in 1961. Channing was writing in response to Henry Clay's speech on slavery. Now you can own an original 1839 printing of this famous work. Scarce.

34 Clegg, Robert I. Encyclopedia of Freemasonry and Kindred Sciences, New, Revised and Enlarged, Volumes 1 & 2
The Masonic History Company 1929 Revised Edition; Various Hardcover Very Good with No dust jacket as issued 
Two volume set. Blue grey leather cover with gold lettering.Very clean contents some pages and end papers browning due to age. Former ownersname in front. Freemasonry is a fraternal organisation that traces its origins to the local fraternities of stonemasons, which from the end of the fourteenth century regulated the qualifications of masons and their interaction with authorities and clients. The degrees of freemasonry, its gradal system, retain the three grades of medieval craft guilds, those of Apprentice, journeyman or fellow (now called Fellowcraft), and Master Mason. These are the degrees offered by craft, or blue lodge Freemasonry. There are additional degrees, which vary with locality and jurisdiction, and are now administered by different bodies than the craft degrees.The basic, local organisational unit of Freemasonry is the lodge. The lodges are usually supervised and governed at the regional level (usually coterminous with either a state, province, or national border) by a Grand Lodge or Grand Orient. There is no international, world-wide Grand Lodge that supervises all of Freemasonry. Each Grand Lodge is independent, and they do not necessarily recognise each other as being legitimate.; Freemasonry; Vol. 1 & 2; Photos and illustrations; 4to 11" - 13" tall

Analysis of Butler's Analogy, Crooks, George Richard
39 Crooks, George Richard Analysis of Butler's Analogy
ca 1950 First Edition; Various Paperback Good with no dust jacket 
Ink stain at top of pages which does not affect print. Foxing. An early imprint or book section (no binding), printed around 1850-1870, of a discussion of Bishop Butlers discussion of life, death, and life after death. Joseph Butler (1692-1752) wrote his infamous Analogy of Religion, Natural and Revealed, to the Constitution and Course of Nature, in 1736. Butler was born and educated in England as a Presbyterian but became ordained in the Church of England in 1718, and eventually became the Dean of St. Paul's Cathedral and later Bishop of Durham. This is not Hobarts and the author is not revealed, but is most likely George Richard Crooks who republished Butler's Analogy with and Analysis which this paper is mostly that analysis. George Richard Crooks (February 3, 1822 Philadelphia February 20, 1897) was a United States writer, educator, and Methodist minister.In 1860 Crooks became editor of The Methodist, a publication described by a colleague as "the doughty unofficial rival of the official weekly The Christian Advocate."[12] In conjunction with John McClintock, he prepared a series of "First Books" in Latin and Greek (18461847). In 1852 Crooks edited a republication of Butler's Analogy, for which he added an analysis, index, and biography. (Wikipedia). Heavy foxing to pages and ink spot to top of pages. Rare. Possibly no publication date in item. Paperback may indicate a booklet, phamplet, tract or book.; 12mo 7" - 7" tall; 49 pages
