5 Cheever, Rev. George B. Deacon Giles's Distillery in The National Temperance Advocate
New York National Temperance Society and Publication House 1877 Wrapper Very Good No Jacket Folio - over 12" - 15" tall 
Terrific reprint of the Revernd Cheever's classic temperance broadside originally published in in Salem, Massachusetts, in 1835. The virulent satire, accompanied by a fantastic illustration depicting demonic workers in a local distillery filling whiskey barrels with "consumption," "insanity and murder," "putrid fever," "distilled death and liquid damnation," "weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth," and other such afflictions. It so incensed a local rum-selling deacon that he had Cheever succesfully prosecuted for slander. Cheever was convicted, fined $1000, and sentenced to one month's imprisonment. Upon his release, Cheever promptly published a second satire about Deacon Jones's Brewery that was even more vicious than the first. This article and distillery print fill two pages of a twenty-page temperance tabloid. The print measures 6.5" x 8.75".

He died--probably of tuberculosis--in the home of Jonathan Edwards, who transcribed and published Brainerd's diary in 1749.

Allthough the lyrics to the hymn were were published throughout the English-speaking world, its tune varied by local until a Savannah woman requested a young bank clerk, who had a local reputation as a church composer, to write the music.

Peter the Venerable and Islam, Kritzeck, James
11 Kritzeck, James Peter the Venerable and Islam
Princeton, New Jersey Princeton University Press 1964 First Edition, 1st Printing Hard Cover Near Fine Very Good 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 
301 pages. Very hard-to-find study on Peter the Venerable. "For more than four centuries the principal source of informed Christian European knowledge of Islam stemmed from a project sponsored by Peter the Venerable, the ninth abbot of Cluny, in 1142. The project . . . consisted of the preparation of Latin translations of five Arabic works, among them the first translation of the Koran in a Western language. . . . The resulting collection, known as the Toledan Collection, was eventually printed in 1543 with an introduction by Martin Luther. . . . Many new facts concerning Peter the Venerable's project have only recently come to light. James Kritzeck has collected the available material related to the work, including new source material, in an informative study that spans the fields of Islamic studies, monasticism, medieval cultural history, and comaprative religion." Doesn't appear to have ever been read. Tight binding with sound hinges. Clean pages. Very light cover wear. Dust jacket has some minor wear.

18 NA Leaf from a 1638 Musical Psalter - The 23rd Psalm
London Robert Barker 1638 Leaf Very Good 12mo - over 6" - 7" tall 
The 23rd Psalm from a scarce metrical psalter bound together with a Barker King James Bible. This version of the psalm has different phrasing than that found in the King James Version of the Bible. The Old Testament Psalms were often collected together in a type of devotional book known as a psalter, which usually also contained a Church calendar, canticles, prayers, and important New Testament verses. Frequently they were bound together with Bibles. Metrical psalters paraphrased these verses into poetry meant to be sung as hymns in church.

19 NA Leaf from a 1639 King James Version (KJV) Bible - Ecclesiastes 3 - "To every thing there is a season . . ."
London Robert Barker 1639 Leaf Very Good 16mo - over 5" - 6" tall 
Verses in this leaf run from Ecclesiastes 1:17 through 5:19. Includes Ecclesiastes 3, "To every thing there is a season . . . ." In 1604, King James called a conference at Hampton Court to settle various religious grievances throughout the kingdom. There, Dr. John Rainolds convinced him that a new translation of the Bible was required because those that currently being printed "were corrupt and not answerable to the truth of the original." James readily agreed, as he found the then popular Geneva Bible greatly offensive, and gave the new translators specific instructions, designed to ensure it would conform to the ecclesiology of the Church of England. 54 unpaid scholars worked on the translation, and when it was completed, the original printing of the KJV was published by Robert Barker in 1611. A copy of the title page and finis from this 1639 KJV Bible will be included with this leaf.
