Or, The Important Question about the Sufficiency Of Reason To Conduct Mankind To Religion And Future Happiness, Argued Between An Inquiring Deist and a Christian Divine: And The Debate Compromis'd to the Satisfaction of both, By an Impartial Moderator.
Published anonymously by Isaac Watts, (his name does not appear) this is the first edition of 1731 and needs restoration. All 281 pages are present, stitching seems to be sound, the Contents list is bound at the back. Early pages and terminating pages have some browning and foxing, but the majority of pages are good with just a little discolouration to edges. In full leather binding with wear to all edges, front board totally detached, back board just hanging on at present. It is thought to be the original contemporary binding ?? The front board and front free end paper have been sellotaped together, and pastedown bears red leather label for Ann Spooner, her name is also written in pencil. Isaac Watts 1674-1748 was a Non-Conformist Minister who wrote and published extensively, including some books for children and several hymns. An unusual and scarce item. While classed as Poor condition, this could be rectified by a good binder.
