Priestley, Joseph:

A CONTINUATION OF THE LETTERS TO THE PHILOSOPHERS AND POLITICIANS OF FRANCE, ON THE SUBJECT OF RELIGION; AND OF THE LETTERS TO A PHILOSOPHICAL UNBELIEVER; IN ANSWER TO MR. PAINE'S AGE OF REASON.

Salem [MA]: 1795 Bound in modern marbled wrappers. 72pp, bit of tanning and blank chipping. Good+. Priestley says he is encouraged by signs in France that "the cause of religion" is recovering. "When the prejudice which is now conceived against christianity, on account of the shocking corruptions and abuses of it, shall begin to wear off, it will be embraced first by philosophers, then perhaps by the French nation in general, and lastly by the world at large." Priestley dismisses Paine's objections to Christianity as "hackneyed," arising "from the grossest ignorance of the subject." The first printing issued in 1794 from Northumberland, PA. Evans 29352.
