Stowe, H[arriet] B[eecher]:

EARTHLY CARE A HEAVENLY DISCIPLINE.

Henry Longstreth, Philadelphia: [1863?] 16mo, 16pp. Original printed wrappers, stitched, light wear. Near Fine. Inscribed on front wrapper, 'Elizabeth T. Brown from Sister Mary.' NUC suggests 1863 as the publication date. One of several scarce printings, which NUC indicates began in the 1840's. "Why has God arranged an outward system, which is a constant diversion from the inward- and then commanded a strict and rigid inwardness and spirituality?" It's because life is "disciplinary," "an education to fit the soul for its immortality." Not in Eberstadt, Decker, Sabin. 572 NUC 0981047 [2- ICN, PHi]. BAL 19345.
