A Treatise on the Fundamental Doctrines of the Christian Religion: In Which Are Illustrated the Profession, Ministry, Worship, and Faith of the Society of Friends.

Concord [N.H.]: Published by Isaac Hill, 1818. Evidently the first Concord edition, the first having appeared in Philadelphia in 1815. 12mo, contemporary calf, 142, [2] pages. Clumsily bound with resulting skewing to the spine and some rather extreme misaligment of the fore-edges of the text block; boards somewhat worn and rubbed, with a little cracking to the upper joint; a little foxed; a good, sound copy. Item #12681

Meant as an introduction to Quaker thought and published by Kersey on the cusp of the Hicksite separations. (Kersey himself ended up in the Hicksite camp.) Cf. American Imprints 44513, which notes an imprint of Daniel Cooledge in Concord; Isaac Hill is listed on the title page of that issue as the printer.

Price: $75.00
