The Philosophical Principles of Natural and Revealed Religion. Unfolded in a geometrical order.
Glasgow: Robert Foulis, 1748-49 - Two volumes, quarto (205 × 160 mm). Recent quarter calf and marbled boards, spine ruled and lettered gilt. First and last leaves a little toned, a very good copy. Bookplate of Sir Archibald Grant of Monymoske, with his ownership inscription dated 1750 to the head of the title (slightly trimmed). First edition of Ramsay's great work, left unpublished at his death in 1743, and given by his wife to Foulis, and seen through the press thanks to the good offices of Hutcheson and, after his death in 1746, John Stevenson. "It reiterated many of the arguments of Ramsay's Cyrus, but made more explicit his attempt to reconcile Newtonian ideas to his own philosophy" (ODNB.) [Attributes: First Edition]
