The Analogy of Religion, Natural and Revealed, to the Constitution and Course of Nature. To which are added two brief dissertations: I. Of personal identity. II. Of the nature of virtue.
James, John and Paul Knapton, London 1736 - First edition, 4to. xii, 320pp complete. Finely bound in contemporary paneled calf, spine expertly renewed with morocco label. Bookplate of Lytton Strachey on front pastedown, beneath an earlier bookplate. Contents clean and unmarked, a remarkably fresh copy. 'Butler's was an empirical approach, similar to Hume's, but he held that philosophic scepticism should not entail religious scepticism. Assuming, as the deists were prepared to, that God is the author of nature, there are no contradictions, obscurities or improbabilities in religious doctrine different in kind from those encountered in science. Thus the religious order and the scientific order are similar in nature, and both show the working of the Supreme Creator' (PMM). Printing and the Mind of Man 193. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
