[Washington, D. C.]: Reeves, Pagenhoff & Co., 1877. First edition of this separately published parts issue of a series of Newman's sermons. 8vo, original printed wrappers, -294 pages. A trifle dust-soiled and worn; a very good copy. Item #13076
A curiously rousing sermon combinging prophetic political science and historical battle narratives, from the well-connected Washington, D. C. Methodist bishop Newman. The days of polite protestations from the clergyman when asked to publish "by request" here appear to have been supplanted by an etrepreneurial imperative; this is number 22 of 25 of Newman's sermons to be published in parts (publisher's ads also offer the parts collected in cloth). The wrappers also include ads for a local job printer and an attorney.
