PENN (James): Various Tracts. , London: Printed by Charles Say...For the Author, 1756.

FIRST AND ONLY EDITION. 8vo, 200 x 118 mms., pp. xvi, 383 [384 blank], including eight pages of subscribers, contemporary calf, red leather label, gilt "1" on spine; joints cracked (but firm), top and base of spine chipped, corners worn. Penn (1727 - 1800) published two more volumes with the same title in 1758 and 1762, but with different contents. Penn takes a more liberal attitude towards the growth of deism and free-thinking than some of his fellow clergyman, as is evident in "An Essay upon the Reasonableness of Free-Thinking Religious Matters, and The Weakness and Danger of relying upon Human Authority." (Book ref. 6946 )  £ 85.00
