New York & Cincinnati: Phillips & Hunt and Cranston & Stowe, 1888. Daniel Dorchester (1827-1907) was a Methodist minister who wrote several of his books on temperance; here he pens an anti-"Romanism" tract regarding attempts by the Roman Catholic Church to establish parochial schools in the US. This is a Very Good (Plus) copy of the First Edition. An uncommon work when compared with his others, even in institutional holdings. Dark brown cloth binding, decoratively ruled, with gilt titling on the front cover and spine. Clean text; 351 pages, with four pages of adverts for Dorchester's other works in the rear. Interestingly, tipped into the book in the rear is a 16-page phamplet from the Boston Committee of One Hundred entitled "An Open Letter to the Friends of Free Schools and American Liberties." The Committee was formed in the same year as Dorchester's book and would provide much testimony at hearings held the following year. Corners are mildly bumped; rubbed slightly at head and foot of the spine. A solid copy and an interesting by-way in America's war between religion and secular.. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good (Plus)/No Jacket. 12mo - over 6" - 7" tall. First Edition.
