TWO DISCOURSES: A DEAD FAITH ANATOMIZED and THE SELF-JUSTICIARY CONVICTED AND CONDEMNED. Samuel Mather. TWO DISCOURSES: A DEAD FAITH ANATOMIZED and THE SELF-JUSTICIARY CONVICTED AND CONDEMNED
Boston: Reprinted by J. Draper, for D. Henchman in Cornhill, 1740. First combined edition of these two scarce works which were first published in 1697 and 1707, respectively. [Evans 4560-61, but with linking title page; Sabin 46788-89]. The complete titles are DEAD FAITH ANATOMIZED: A Discourse on the Nature, and the Danger, with the Deadly Symptoms of a Dead Faith, and THE SELF-JUSTICIARY CONVICTED AND CONDEMNED: Or, A Discourse Concerning the Difficulty and Necessity of Renouncing Our Own Righteousness. Pastor Samuel Mather (1651-1728), a cousin of Cotton Mather, is credited with healing a 10-year break in the Congregationalist First Church of Windsor (the oldest Congregational church in Connecticut) which had resulted in the formation of a separate Presbyterian Party of Windsor. This was surely no mean feat. Text pages are darkened, stained, occasionally torn and often edgeworn but intact and wholly readable. Freshly rebound in quarter leather with marbled boards. Only one copy of this combined edition has appeared at auction and that was in 1977. FIRST COMBINED EDITION OF TWO SCARCE WORDS.
