About this Item

"Offered to the Consideration of the deists of the Present Age," this is the eighth, corrected edition of a polemic originally published in 1697 by the dean of Norwich. Much read and widely influential on both English and American opinions of Islam, this work led to the common attachment of the "impostor" epithet to Mohammed's name in Western usage. The "Discourse for the Vindicating of Christianity from the Charge of Imposture" has a separate title-page dated 1722, but its pagination is continuous with the first work. 8vo (20.2 cm, 7.9"). xvi (i.e., xvii), [3], 260 pp. ESTC T138493. Contemporary speckled calf, framed and panelled in blind with panel of contrasting calf decorated with blind roll and blind-tooled corner fleurons, rebacked with sympathetic calf, spine with gilt-dotted raised bands, gilt-stamped leather title-label, and blind-tooled compartment decorations; original leather showing minor acid-pitting with edges worn and rubbed. Ex?social club library: 19th-century bookplate, call number on endpapers, no other markings. Front free endpaper with upper outer corner repaired; browned, with offsetting to margins of first and last few leaves from turn-ins, yet not brittle. Bookseller Inventory # 27101
