About this Item

First edition, Pamphlet. Lacking any wraps that may have been issued. Appears disbound from a larger work. 31 pp., including three odes in the rear. The third ode appears to have been published in 1801 and was perhaps included as an afterthought (Evans makes no mention of this ode). A speech reflecting on the importance of philandrianism in society and the duties of the members of the Philandrian Society, touching on religious and philosophical ideas, as well as the role of benevolent groups in America. The Philandrian Society was a secret society established at Brown University that was 'dedicated to the cultivation of friendship' with meetings held in which lectures on politeness, or other moral or literary subjects were given (see Mitchell: Encyclopedia Brunoniana, online on the Brown University website). GOOD condition. Light browning to the paper. Dampstaining present along the binding edge of the last page, slightly affecting the gutters of the last several pages. Minor scattered foxing. Evans 37346. Bookseller Inventory # 008278
