About this Item

First edition. Jedidiah Morse (1761?1826) presents his side in the famous literary controversy with Hannah Adams (1755?1831) regarding the publication by each of a history of New England for the use of schools. There is also much here on the Unitarian controversy. Morse, a Congregational clergyman and author of the seminal "The American Geography," was a champion of orthodoxy. His opposition to the election of Henry Ware as Hollis Professor of Divinity at Harvard College was one of a series of salvos aimed at forcing out the Unitarians from the Congregational churches. 8vo. xii, [5]?189, [1] pp. Shaw & Shoemaker 32174. Brown library buckram, spine with paper shelf label at base. Toning and foxing throughout. Shallow chip at top edge of title-page. Early ink ownership signature on title-page. Inked "correction" to table of contents on p. 189. Final (blank) leaf with two short tears. Ex-library with bookplate on front pastedown and lightly penciled call number on verso of title-page.
