Rare Book 1754 Jonathan Edwards Freedom of Will Boston

Lot 0064A Details

Description
Extremely rare first edition of jonthan edwards' "freedom of will" published in 1754 by s. Kneeland of boston. This book is a seminal american work of philosophyand theology. This first edition is extremely rare. I can find no known copies for sale, nor can i find sales records for this book. The closest i could find was a 1741 25-page sermon "sinners in the hands of an angry god" pamphlet sold at auction for $8,000 by knotty pine auctions. While we are not sure of how many copies of this book were printed, we suspect the number to be fewer than 1000, as the list of the subscribers at the back of the book numbers just under 700. Perhaps that is the size of the edition, although it is likely some number of copies were printed above the subscription number to fill late orders. The book measures 7 13/16" x 5 1/16" x 1. 25" the binding is worn but solid. The title on the spine is "edwards' enquiry. " condition issues that we see include trimming to the right edge of pages 133/4 and 135/6, although this trim doesn't extend to the text. All pages are present including index and subscriber list. One blank page loose at front with previous owner's name on it. Myron h. Goodwin bookplate. There is a water stain on the first several and last several pages. Inside pages look good. Shipping 12. 50
