Huntington, Joseph:

THE VANITY AND MISCHIEF OF PRESUMING ON THINGS BEYOND OUR MEASURE. A SERMON DELIVERED AT NORWICH, FIRST-SOCIETY, MAY 22, 1774. BY...PASTOR OF THE FIRST CHURCH IN COVENTRY, IN CONNECTICUT. MADE PUBLIC AT THE DESIRE OF A NUMBER OF PRINCIPAL GENTLEMEN OF SAID NORWICH.

Robertsons and Trumbull, Norwich: 1774 30pp. Disbound with loosening, old 'duplicate' rubberstamp on title page. Tanned, lightly worn and foxed, about Good+. The press of Robertsons and Trumbull enjoyed a brief existence from 1774-1776, when it printed 18 items listed in NAIP. In this scarce sermon, Huntington counsels that "every created Mind" is "limited to a certain Degree of Knowledge, beyond which, at that Time, it cannot extend." With due humility, then, a person should not "arrogate to himself more Understanding than he really hath," for doing so is "troublesome and dangerous." FIRST EDITION. Evans 13344. Trumbull 884. NAIP w028561 [10]. OCLC locates 6, under two accession numbers.
