Description:

Octavo. ix, 329 (1), 371pp. Original green bpards with gilt-stamped vignettes and ruling on front covers. Captivating work in which the author posits that no religious institution should use coercion and emphasized that Judaism does not coerce the mind through dogma. Mendelssohn argued that through reason all people could discover religious philosophical truths, but what made Judaism unique was its divinely revealed code of legal, ritual and moral law. He said that Jews must live in civil society but only in a way that their right to observe religious laws is granted. He recognized the necessity of multiple religions and respected each one. Bindings slightly rubbed with publisher's labels removed from both spines. Ex Libris of Wm. R. Blumenthal on both front free endpapers. Fore and bottom edges uncut. Block somewhat age toned. Binding and interior in good+ to very good condition. Bookseller Inventory #
