1 American Unitarian Association Tracts of the American Unitarian Association. First Series-Vol.I. Containing Numbers 1 to 12
Boston Bowles and Dearborn 1827 First Edition. Hardcover Very Good No Jacket 
Boston: Bowles and Dearborn, 1827. An anthology containing twelve doctrinal phamplets (actually eleven and an index) issued in various years by the American Unitarian Association. Although the Title Page gives the publication date as 1827, the chapters have different publishers and dates, from when they were origially printed. The latest one is 1837; Quercus therefore believes this to be the actual date of publication. This is a Very Good copy, really in quite nice condition. Marbled paper-covered boards with leather tips and spine; rules, with gilt lettering on the spine. Mildly rubbed and bumped. The text is clean and bright, quite superior to the norm. Each chapter has its own pagination but volume total is 334 pages. Size: 12mo - over 6" - 7" tall. First Edition.. Hard Cover. Very Good/No Jacket. First Edition.

New York: P. O'Shea, 1883. A collection of poems by an American Catholic author who wrote under the pen-name "Marie." This is a scarce title.

Redish-brown cloth binding, ruled, with gilt title on the front cover; mildly rubbed at the margins. Clean text; 532 pages, with a two-page list of subscribers.

These are Very Good (Plus) copies of Wesley's sermons, in a full-leather binding. Gilt lettering on the spine on red and black labels.

There is a bookmark at page 215, consisting of a piece torn from a book, possibly this one. In a quirky addition, Volume Two has two clippings pasted in at the end on "Cure for a Stifled Horse" and "Superior Grafting Wax." Leather binding is scuffed, but these are sound copies of this uncommon set. Size: 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. First Thus.. Full-Leather. Very Good Plus/No Jacket. First Edition.
