JUDAS THE TRAITOR HUNG UP IN CHAINS, TO GIVE WARNING TO PROFESSORS, THAT THEY BEWARE OF WORLDLY-MINDEDNESS, AND HYPOCRISY: A DISCOURSE CONCLUDING WITH A DIALOGUE; PREACH'D AT YORK IN NEW-ENGLAND
Boston, 1714. 12mo. Contemporary calf over birch boards. Upper portion of front board lacking (calf intact). Worn at edges, head and foot of spine heavily so. Modern bookplate inside front cover, contemporary ownership inscription on verso of titlepage and final leaves. Light to moderate foxing and soiling. Six leaves with some worming in the top margin, affecting a few letters in headlines. Good. The second recorded and most complete copy of this printing of Samuel Moodey's sermon on Judas Iscariot and the evils of hypocrisy. The work was written for young people. Samuel Moodey (1676-1747) was a minister in York, Maine, and a Harvard graduate of the class of 1697. Three editions of this work were issued in Boston in 1714, with imprints by B. Green, T. Green, and the present item - whose imprint was uncertain before now, as the only other copy extant, at the American Antiquarian Society, lacks the titlepage and numerous other leaves. Of those three editions, seven total copies are noted in ESTC. This edition was previously attributed to the Boston booksellers Nicholas Buttolph, Eleazer Phillips, and Nicholas Boone, since the advertisements at the end are primarily for their establishments. Incredibly rare and highly desirable in such lovely contemporary condition. Practically unique.
