Jesus is God: or, the deity of Jesus Christ vindicated. Being an Abstract of some Sermons Preach'd in the Parish-Church of St. James Clerkenwell
London: Printed for Will. Newton, 1694. [16], 125pp, [1]. With initial imprimatur leaf and a cancel title leaf. Contemporary blind-ruled sheep, rubbed with a little loss to spine. Reducing stain to head of title, preliminaries and first 12 leaves, else a clean and crisp copy in an unsophisticated binding. Several ink inscriptions of 'John Cain his book 1763', to verso of A1 and final leaf, later inscription of 'J.H.L. Parker, 1940' to FFEP. A rare variant edition, with a cancel title, of an altogether uncommon work by acclaimed preacher Deuel Pead (1647-1727), Minister of St. James, Clerkenwell, known for high church leanings and encouraging his congregations to bow reverently at the name of Jesus. Pead's sermons were published with regularity between 1694 and 1719, and he is perhaps best remembered for his Annus victoriis mirabilis (London, 1706/7), a New Years Eve thanksgiving sermon occasioned by the Duke of Marlborough's victories in the War of the Spanish Succession. This present title, described as 'an abstract of some sermons Preach'd in...St James Clerkenwell' is scripturally based on Matthew XIII, 58, and was apparently his first published work. Pead had been, however, long recognised as an inspiring preacher; he was one of several young clergyman dispatched to Virginia in the seventeenth-century as part of Henry Compton, Bishop of London's attempt to establish Anglicanism in the New World. He served St. Peter's Parish, Henrico, and is recorded as having preached at Jamestown in 1686. ESTC locates a single copy of this variant, which names only William Norton as published, at Chetham's library, and only 7 copies of the original edition 'printed for George Conyers' also, (BL, Cambridge, Cambridge Trinity College, Folger, Oxford, Pennsylvania VPD and Union Theological). c/f Wing P961.. Variant of the first edition. 8vo.
