Collection of British Religious Pamphlets, ca. 1790-1870
1686. A collection of approx. 72 pamphlets, mostly religious in nature though peppered with some secular tracts, most published in Great Britain in the18th century but with a few before and after, including a wealth of sermons relating to the nature and practice of religion, its place in civil society, and other topics, many of the sermons in response to landmark occasions both large and small including days of thanksgiving and fasting, the ordination or retirement of a minister, funerals of noted persons, etc. Most of the pamphlets were deaccessioned from an institutional library and in most cases the text blocks have been removed from earlier bindings; the works are all intact and in generally good condition except for some staining and foxing; though most lack their original wrpps. cover;, the text blocks are generally sound, with an occasional loose page here or there. London, Oxford, Glasgow, Cambridge, Leeds, etc. 1686-1845. An interesting compendium of material which taken in its entirety provides a good overview of religious thought in the British Isles in the 18th century.
