Letters on Materialism and Hartley's Theory of the Human Mind, Addressed to Dr. Priestley, F.R.S.
G.Robinson and M.Swinney, London 1776 - London, Printed for G.Robinson and M.Swinney, 1776. 1st edition. Octavo. [8], 229pp, [1]. Joseph Berington's lengthy critique of Joseph Priestley's doctrine of materialism and David Hartley's theories on consciousness and emotion. Though Berington later became one of the most respected Catholic writers of his era, in this work he appears to take issue with much of the detail of Priestley and Hartley's theories whilst seemingly failing to clearly define his own stance on the subject. Bound in contemporary paper-covered grey boards with a later calf spine and later endpapers. All edges uncut. Half title present and the errata leaf annotated in a contemporary hand to include two extra text errors, possibly indicating that this copy was either Berington's own or that of someone closely connected with it's publication. The top of the spine is worn with some loss. Splits starting at the tops of the front and back hinges but with both covers still firmly attached. Extremities of the binding rubbed. Otherwise, a very clean copy of a scarce work, with the text block sound and the binding in good condition. NB The price of this item is negotiable dependent on your chosen payment method. Please feel free to make contact for further information on this item or on payment options. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
