About this Item

According to the OPAC at the American Antiquarian Society, this is "An abridgment of the 70 p. Philadelphia edition (Evans 26583) printed by Dobson in September 1772 [i.e., 1792]. In the present issue, the appendix relating to the Baptist churches of Great Britain (p. 58-66) has been omitted, and p. 57 has been reset. As is the case with the 70 p. issue, the first 16 p. are the same sheets as appear in the original [Richmond, April 1792] edition (Evans 26580), and were probably printed in 1791. Evans, however, postulates that the first 16 p. were printed by Dobson in September 1792. He accounts for their presence in copies of the [Richmond] edition of 60 p. by suggesting that Asplund substituted the corrected Philadelphia sheets for the unsatisfactory sheets of the earlier edition. Cf. the prefaces to the 1794 and 1796 editions, with title: The universal register of the Baptist denomination." In addition to its exhaustive account of who's who and what's where, this lists both principles of belief and "Rules of Decorum"; the latter, e.g., forbid laughing and whispering when another member of the association is speaking in assembly. Between the "Rules of Decorum" and the Index, Asplund remarks on the un-Christian "inconsistency" of "Keeping our fellow-creatures in bondage, who have as good a right was we, both to civil and religions liberty ? Not only so; but misusing them, concerning common blessings, which certainly is a violation of the rights of nature and inconsistent with a republican government." Small 4to. iv, 5-57, [1], 69-70 pp. Evans 26582; ESTC W37302. Uncut copy. In 20th-century black buckram binding. Ex-library with bookplate but no other markings. Bookseller Inventory # 24467
