The Works of Rev. Robert Hall, A.M. (Three Volume Set)
New York City, Harper & Brothers, 1838. Leather Bound. 8vo. Uniformly bound in full calf. Engraved frontispiece. Each of these three volumes is noticeably bumped, scuffed & rubbed. On the front free endpaper of each are stamped the words 'section' and 'shelf'. There is a small, very old, bookseller's stamp on the front pastedown of volume I. The hinges and joints are generally tight, but one or two are a trifle weak. The contents show some light, sporadic, foxing. Overall, the volumes can be handled, and read, with normal care and are thus still in good to good plus condition. Hall (1764-1831) was a Baptist divine, reputed to have first preached at age 11. He created great controversy with his 'Modern Infidelity considered with respect to its Influence on Society' (published in 1800, contained within vol. I of this set). These three volumes contain 'Sermons and Charges', 'Sermons not before Published', 'Tracts, Political and Miscellaneous', 'Articles from the Eclectic Review', 'Miscellaneous Pieces', 'Notes on Sermons', and 'Letters'. With a brief memoir of his life by Dr. Gregory, and observations on his character as a preacher by Rev. John Foster.
