Views of the world from Halley's comet: a discourse, delivered in Paradise Street Chapel, Liverpool, September 27th, 1835
London: R. Hunter et al., 1835. [6], 20pp. Recent blue paper boards, printed paper lettering piece to upper board. Slight wear to extremities, some discolouration to lettering-piece. Title and final page toned, marginal dust-soiling and light foxing throughout. A monograph delivered by Unitarian religious philosopher James Martineau (1805-1900) on the association between humanities notions of the divine, as gleaned through the heavens, and the scientific explanations afforded to the material world in the modern age; all done upon the focus of Halley's comet, visible in 1835 for the first time since 1759. Martineau seeks to persuade that the appearance of the comet may convey a deeper spiritual significance rather than being a mere curiosity of natural philosophy. . Second edition. 8vo in 4s.
