About this Item: Published by Edwin Hunt, Middletown [Connecticut], 1833. Hardcover. Condition: Good+. Two vols pages; Two volume set (large thick octavos). Contemporary full sheepskin leather, spines decoratively stamped and lettered in gilt, text-block edges decoratively marbled. Rubbed, dry and worn, with some abrasions and small areas of loss to the spine and boards, especially at the edges and corners. Some minor damp-marks to the first hundred pages of the first volume in the lower margins. Engraved frontispiece (containing small portraits of Wickliffe, Huss, Jerome of Prague, Luther, Calvin, Wesley, and Knox), and 96 small woodcut illustrations, mostly printed three-to-a-page (rectos only). The title pages state: "Third American from the Ninth Glasgow Edition." The copyright slugs on the versos of the title page are registered to the firm of Hutchison and Dwier, 1833 (Hartford publishers). [Most likely, this set was printed in Hartford by Hudson and Skinner, whose slug appears on the similar edition published with Hutchison and Dwier's Hartford title pages]. The author was raised on a farm, left formal school at age ten, but was apprenticed to a firm of printer / publishers, and made a point of mastering English prose. He wrote a series of papers, "The Protestant" -- designed to "expose the errors of the church of Rome," commenced in 1818, and finished in 1822. The series was soon gathered into book form (in four volumes) and went through a number of editions. The author died suddenly of apoplexy, August 23, 1832. It is recorded that he offered the continuing profit on sales of "The Protestant" as a subscription to the society in Glasgow for the support of the Catholic schools. The offer was declined, but friends of the author insist that it had been a sincere gesture on the part of the author, for many years a successful Glasgow businessman. The American edition have special prefaces, and a fascinating statistical table at the end of volume II, estimating the numbers of Priests, Churches (called here "Mass-Houses" Colleges, Convents, Male Seminaries, Female Academies, Asylums, and Convents -- broken down State by State (and the District of Columbia and Georgetown). The totals of these lists added up to 320 Priests, 294 "Mass Houses" 10 Colleges, etc. This is followed by some statistics for Canada. This Middletown edition is not in OCLC; the American Antiquarian Society has a set of the similar Hartford 1833 edition from Hutchison & Dwier (called on its title pages "Second American Edition") That edition and ours are so similar that they share an error in pagination in the second volume -- ( pages 265, 266 misnumbered 365, 366), clear evidence of printing from stereotyped plates.
