Description:

8vo. [2], 49, xxii, 120pp. Restored contemporary calf with gold lettering on spine. Raised bands. Two title-pages, as issued. First 49 page section contains "Memoirs of the life and writings of the learned author." In "Medica Sacra" Richard Mead argued that pagan ideas regarding demons had entered Christianity. Mead understood those afflicted by demons in the New Testament to refer simply to those suffering from a variety of illnesses: "That the Daemoniacs, daimonizomenoi, mentioned in the gospels, laboured under a disease really natural, though of an obstinate and difficult kind, appears to me very probable from the accounts given of them." Contemporaries such as Isaac Newton, Joseph Mede, and Arthur Ashley Sykes shared Mead's opinion on the subject. Translated from the Latin into English by Thomas Stack. Decorative head and tailpieces. Age wear and staining on binding. Gutter along front and rear endpapers reinforced with white binder's tape, offsetting around edges of front and rear endpapers & title-page due to restoration of binding. Signatures of previous owner's on free front endpaper. Usual rippling to pages. Binding in fair to good-, interior in overall very good condition. Bookseller Inventory #
