About this Item

Asgill, expelled from the Irish House of Commons for the questionable state of his finances and then from the English House for having published his claim that true believers in Christ will be translated wholly into Heaven rather than experiencing bodily death, here expounds on his rapturous religious tenets while affirming his belief in the Scriptures and denying any wrongdoing?especially in the pesky land speculation matter. One might, upon perusing Asgill's arguments, agree with the assessment made by the printer of the original treatise, who "fancy'd [Asgill] was a little craz'd" (p. 40). This example is apparently a variant state of the first edition of 1712 (ESTC does not distinguish between variants, grouping all entries under one listing), with p. 61, line 8 ending "of the Romish Persuasion.'. 8vo (19.2 cm, 7.55"). 87, [1] pp. ESTC T41498. On Asgill, see: The Dictionary of National Biography, II, 159?61. Removed from a nonce volume, now in a Mylar folder. Title-page with small numeric stamp, spots of discoloration. A few pages more notably browned than their neighbors; otherwise generally clean. Bookseller Inventory # 6413
