About this Item

First American edition: The true first was printed in London, 1742, under the pseudonym "Augusta." The author was indeed a convert (from Presbyterianism), and an important one: As vicar apostolic of the London district, he provided a most determined voice for English Catholics during the 18th century. Anti-Catholic laws forced his efforts to remain covert, but he endured to found the "Benevolent Society for the Relief of the Aged and Infirm Poor" and three schools; a preacher and minister especially to the poor, he converted many in the London slums. Throughout his life Challoner "labored to save Catholicism in England from extinction; his writings and preachings served to strengthen the faith of the Catholic minority . . ." (New Catholic Encyclopedia, 438). His readable, revised edition of the Douay?Rheims Bible (1749?52) served as the English Catholic standard until quite recently. Provenance: Released as a duplicate from the greatest collection of American Catholica in the world, the Georgetown University Library, with a few of the requisite and expected stamps. 8vo. 204 pp. Parsons 461; Shaw & Shoemaker 31112. On Challoner, see: New Catholic Encyclopedia, III, 437?438. Contemporary sheep, front joint abraded; gilt-stamped red leather title-label, chipped with loss; binding abraded, covers a bit sprung, spine with paper shelving label. Title-page and one other stamped as described above; pages age-toned. A decent copy. Bookseller Inventory # 30248
