Rogers and Fowle, Boston, N.E, 1749. [4], 157, [1 blank], [1- publ. advt.], [1 blank] pp. Disbound, light rubberstamp and light foxing on title page. Else a clean and Very God text. Errata at the bottom of page [4]. Seven sermons by the extraordinary minister who led the struggle for the integrity of American religious institutions and of whom John Adams wrote, "To draw the character of Mayhew, would be to transcribe a dozen volumes" [quoted in DAB]. Mayhew insisted upon the religious duty to exercise private judgment in religious matters; he opposed religious establishments, and vigorously opposed establishmentarian efforts by representatives of the Church of England in America. Because God has endowed men with the ability to discern right from wrong, "men are under obligation to exert these faculties; and to judge for themselves in things of a religious concern." Evans 6365. ESTC W8164.
Bookseller: David M. Lesser, ABAA [Woodbridge, CT, U.S.A.]
