WARBURTON (William). [MORGAN (Thomas)]: A Brief Examination of the Rev. Mr. Warburton's Divine Legation of Moses. In which The Mosaic Theocracy, the Nature and Character of the Sacred Writings, the Antiquity of Hero-Gods, and a future, separate State of Animal Life, and Action for Souls after Death; with other Principles and Positions of that learned Writer are occasionally considered and discussed. Address'd to the Author. By a Society of Gentlemen. , London: Printed for T. Cox..., 1742.

FIRST AND ONLY EDITION. 8vo, lxxxiv, 175 [176 blank], recent plain grey boards, paper label on spine; title-page margins a little frayed and title-page slightly stained. . Warburton's Divine Legation of Moses (1738 - 1741) provoked a large number of responses, usually unfavourable from clerics who thought his argument that in the ancient Hebraic world, a "life after death" was not invoked as a mandate for virtuous living. Morgan, a deist, makes a number of ironic compliments to Warburton but more-or-less argues that he doesn't take his argument to its logical conclusion. (Book ref. 6083 )  £ 200.00
