THE ANALOGY OF RELIGION, NATURAL AND REVEALED, TO THE CONSTITUTION AND COURSE OF NATURE
London: Printed for James, John and Paul Knapton, 1736.. [12],x,11-320pp. Large quarto. Modern half calf and marbled boards, raised bands, gilt label. Early ink name ("Thomas Ludlam") on title and transcription from Plutarch on the half-title (to all appearances in the same hand), faint seminary blindstamp in blank lower forecorner of title, with 4 digit ms. number on verso of title, occasional very minor dust marking to top margins, otherwise a large (25.5 x 20.5 cm), fresh, crisp copy. First edition of Butler's magnum opus, one of the signal works in the controversy against deism, and "one of the bulwarks of Christian apologetics ... Hume, who sent Butler his ESSAYS in 1741, ranked him with Locke and Berkeley as one of the originators in the experimental method in moral science ..."(PMM) and his influence was noted by figures as diverse as Mill, Newman, Gladstone and Macaulay. It would indeed be pleasant if the ownership signature conformed to Thomas Ludlam (1727-1811), the theologian, disciple of Locke, and staunch advocate of the application of reason in the analysis of religious experiences. PRINTING & THE MIND OF MAN 193. GROLIER ENGLISH HUNDRED 44. ESTC T06797. NCBEL II:1856-7.
