A RETROSPECT OF THE PAST, AS CONNECTED WITH AND PREPARATORY TO A FAITHFUL EXPOSITION INTENDED TO BE GIVEN OF THE DIVINE WILL AND DISPENSATION DISCLOSED IN THE SACRED BOOKS RECEIVED AS AUTHORITY BY JEWS. BY.AN ISRAELITE
Robinson & Jones, Cincinnati, 1848. Original printed wrappers [light wear, spine reinforced with archival tape, three rubberstamps on blank portions] with ornamental borders, stitched. 49, [3 blanks] pp. Very Good. This scarce pamphlet is the address of 'An Israelite to the Christian World,' asserting "that Israelites view with as much concern and regret as devout Christians, the lamentable attempts to instil disbelief in a Divine revelation." Lindo argues that God's Covenant with the Jews "has never been intermitted, but has always been and still continues to be in operation." Through the revelation they received at Sinai, "the world is indebted for the civilization it now enjoys and will continue to be indebted for the preservation of that civilization." Christianity, he says, was "originally a Jewish sect, adhering strictly to the monotheism of the Old Testament," but it has "gradually become so perverted as to remove it from what it was originally." FIRST EDITION. Rosenbach 637. Singerman 1026. Not in Sabin, Thomson, Eberstadt, Decker. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
Bookseller: David M. Lesser, ABAA [Woodbridge, CT, U.S.A.]
