EDWARDS, JONATHAN. A Treatise Concerning Religious Affections, In Three Parts; Part I. Concerning the Nature of the Affections, and their Importance in Religion. Part II. Shewing what are no certain Signs that religious Affections are gracious, or that they are not. Part III. Shewing what are distinguishing Signs of truly gracious and holy Affections. By Jonathan Edwards, A.M. And Pastor of the first Church in Northampton. [11 lines of scripture texts] Boston: Printed for S. Kneeland and T. Green in Queen-street, over against the Prison. 1746. Octavo, 14 x 20 x 3cm binding; 13.2 x 19.5cm page block. $1,500.00

Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758) Congregational clergyman, theologian, philosopher. "During the rise of enthusiasm in New England in the Great Awakening, Edwards fused Calvinism, Plotonism, Pietism, and Lockean empiricism into a system of religious philosophy. In it the absolute sovereignty of God beomes an 'inward, sweet delight,' not through reason but by an additional or sixth sense... The claim of Edwards to be the founder of the New England 'school' of 'Reformed Divinity' is based upon three works... Freedom of the Will... The Great Christian Doctrine of Original Sin Defended...and A Treatise Concerning Religious Affections... These works, with some other writings, reveal Edwards the philosopher, Lockean pyschologist, and empirical thinker, who used the new philosophy to bolster traditional theology, to become 'the eighteenth-century philosophical apologist for the truths of the Christian religion'"--Nelson R. Burr: A Critical Bibliography of Religion in America, 2 vols. 1961, pp979-980.

Re The Treatise Concering Religious Affections, we quote the Dict of Amer. Biography: "Since, however, in Connecticut and central Massachusetts, revivals resulted in social cleavage and church divisions with partisan conflict between exponents of religion as violent emotion and those who regarded it as rectitude of conduct, Edwards needed to intervene further by a series of sermons in 1742-43 which became A Treatise Concerning Religious Affections, published in 1746. This is the supreme expression of Edwards's psychology of religion. The mind has two activities: understanding, and inclination or will, the latter having inseparable aspects of affections and choice, since man wills what he loves. True religion involves both activities. While in great part it consists in holy affections, there must also be light to the understanding implied in all reasonable affections. At great length he cautions against reliance on mere intensity of feeling, on its effect on the body, on fervor of speech, or on a confidence in righteousness which may be only exalted natural feeling..."--Dict. Amer. Biography, VI:34.

History of Redemption, On a Plan Entirely Original: Exhibiting the Gradual Discovery and Accomplishment of the Divine Purposes in the Salvation of Man; Including a Comprehensive View of Church History, and the Fulfilment [sic] of Scripture Prophecies. By the Late Reverend Jonathan Edwards, President of the College of New Jersey. To which are how [sic] added Notes, Historical, Critical, and Theological, with the Life and Experience of the Author.

Jonathan Edwards, 1703-1758, "the first great philosophic intelligence in American history... He created the first great religious revival of modern times; intensified the power of Calvinism to stem the tide of the world's new thought; fused the iron logic of that system with a rapture of mystic communion; and initiated a New England Theology as a new chapter in the history of doctrine"--Francis A. Christie in Dictionary of American Biography, VI:36-37.

Regarding his History of Redemption: "Yet another aspect of Edwards' thought, never fully expressed before his early death, is detailed in his projected A History of the Work of Redemption... edited by John Erskine, which is believed to constitute Edwards' claim to real originality: a system of theology in the form of a history of God's work of redemption."--Nelson R. Burr: A Critical Bibliography of Religion in America, pp.982-83.

1827 1st Edition Good Pamphlet Octavo, 12.8x20.2cm New York 
Gardiner Spring's Dissertation on the Means of Regeneration, 1st Edition, NY, 1827

SPRING, GARDINER. A Dissertation on the Means of Regeneration. By Gardiner Spring, Pastor of the Brick Presbyterian Church in the City of New-York. New-York. Published by John P. Haven, American Tract Society House, 142 Nassau-Street. 1827. (Printed by Vanderpool & Cole, 104 Beekman-street.) Octavo, 12.8 x 20.2cm. $40.00

Gardiner Spring (1785-1873) Presbyterian pastor, "He believed firmly in the revival method, which then dominated the American churches... He was a thorough Calvinist, with considerable liberality of spirit. He protested strongly against the exclusion of several synods from the Presbyterian Church in 1837 because of theological differences, but when the church divided he and his congregation joined the conservative branch."--Dict. Amer. Biog. XVII:480. We offer the 1st ed. (there was a 2nd in 1828) of Gardiner Spring's Dissertation on the Means of Regeneration. The pamphlet set off a string of replies and counter replies starting with Nathaniel W. Taylor's review in Essays on the Means of Regeneration, and Winslow Hubbard (under the pseud. Evangelus Pacificus) in Evangelical View of the Nature and Means of Regeneration. Bennet Tyler replied with Strictures on the Review of Dr. Spring's Dissertation on the Means of Regeneration. Taylor replied then replied with Review of Dr. Tyler's Strictures upon a Article in the Christian Spectator. Tyler then replied with A Vindication of the Strictures on the Review of Dr. Spring's Dissertation on the Means of Regeneration, in the Christian Spectator for 1829, in Reply to the Reviewer and Evangelus Pacificus.

N.W. Taylor's Reply to Dr. Tyler in the Hawes/Taylor/Tyler Controversy re Native Depravity & Regeneration, Boston, 1832

TAYLOR, NATHANIEL W. Dr. Taylor's Reply to Dr. Tyler's Examination. Boston: Printed by Peirce and Parker, No. 9, Cornhill. 1832. Octavo, 15.8 x 24.8cm. $55.00

Nathaniel W. Taylor (1786-1858) theologian and educator. Taylor entered Yale in 1800, later studied under Timothy Dwight and was ordained minister of the First Church of Christ, New Haven, 1812. In 1822 upon the formation of the Yale Divinity School, he became Dwight Professor of Didactic Theology, a position he held to within a few weeks of his death. "In order to guard against the idea that man is saved by any merit of his own, Calvinism seemed to exclude any real freedom of choice. Edwards in his treatise on the will in grappling with this difficulty had declared that man has a natural ability to repent but is inhibited by his moral disinclinations; his only freedom is liberty to obey the strongest motive... [Taylor] Being of a bold and original mind, endowed with speculative talents of a high order...he broke through the narrow confines of the accepted theology. Moreover, he was a revival preacher deeply concerned with relating religious truth to the facts of human consciousness. His point of divergence was the reality of the freedom of choice. He denied that our consciousness of freedom is an illusion and asserted that the will is not another name for the strongest motive, but is a power to chose between motives. Man, he affirmed, is not born totally depraved, but with certain sinful inclinations, and his 'sin consists in sinning.' To induce men to turn from their evil ways and choose the highest good, appeal must be made to man's natural desire for happiness, which Taylor unfortunately called 'self love.' This self-love will finally become, in a regenerated mind, identical with an unselfish love for God. Such an interpretation of the freedom of the will and the modifications of Calvinism attendant upon it aroused a storm of controversy and divided the churches of New England into 'Taylorites and Tylerites' the adherents of Taylor and of his principal opponent, Bennet Tyler. The debate , passing beyond the borders of New England, became the chief theological reason for the disruption of the Presbyterian Church in 1838."--Charles A. Dinsmore in Dictionary of American Biography, XVIII:338-339. Taylor's "idea of the certainty but not the necessity of man's sin was not outside orthodoxy, and was essential, because his audience no longer knew the Reformation theology, and did not accept the idea of man's 'total depravity.' Taylor exerted a strong influence upon the revivalists, especially Charles G. Finney, whose theological system at Oberlin College, Ohio, 'bore clear marks of Taylorism.'"--Nelson R. Burr: Critical Bibliography of Religion in American, II:994-995. Henry Martyn Dexter: "Collections Toward a Bibliography of Congregationalism" #5227. This controversy, centered around sin/native depravity/regeneration, was started when Taylor reviewed Joel Hawes paper, then Tyler replied to Taylor's review, to which Taylor replies with our pamphlet. Taylor is defending the "orthodoxy" of his positions.

Bennet Tyler's Vindication of His Strictures on Nathanial W. Taylor's Review of Dr. Spring's Dissertation on the Means of Regeneration. Portland, Maine, 1830

TYLER, BENNET. A Vindication of the Strictures on the Review of Dr. Spring's Dissertation on the Means of Regeneration, in the Christian Spectator for 1829, in Reply to the Reviewer and Evangelus Pacificus. By Bennet Tyler, D.D. Pastor of the Second Congregational Church, Portland, Maine. Portland: Shirley and Hyde, Exchange-Street. 1830. Octavo. $35.00

Bennet Tyler (1783-1858) American Congregational pastor, theologian, educator. President of Dartmouth College for 6 years, first President and professor of Christian theology of the Theological Institute of Connecticut, leader of the `Old School' Calvinists. "In this same year [1828] a sermon preached by Dr. Nathaniel W. Taylor at the Yale Commencement let loose a flood of theological controversy among the New England churches, especially in Connecticut, between the 'Old School' Calvinists and the 'New Divinity' as promulgated from New Haven. Being an ardent conservative and one of the ablest interpreters of the old theology, Tyler was drawn into the debate and became a recognized leader of conservative orthodoxy. On Sept. 10, 1833, forty ministers met in East Windsor, Conn., and resolved to establish a theological seminary--if twenty thousand dollars could be raised--to counteract, as far as possible, the harmful effects of the 'New Divinity' as taught in New Haven. The money was raised in a few weeks, the corner-stone of the Theological Institute of Connecticut, now the Hartford Theological Seminary, was laid May 13, 1834, and Tyler was inducted into office as president and professor of Christian theology on the same day. This position he held for twenty-three years, resigning on account of the infirmities of age July 16, 1857... Not an original or speculative thinker, Tyler dwelt contentedly in the Calvinistic system as modified by Jonathan Edwards and tempered by Timothy Dwight"--Dict. Amer. Biog. XIX:85.

Gardiner Spring wrote the original pamphlet, Dissertation on the Means of Regeneration. Nathanial W. Taylor reviewed Spring's work in Essays on the Means of Regeneration as did Winslow Hubbard (under the pseud. Evangelus Pacificus) in Evangelical View of the Nature and Means of Regeneration. Tyler then replied with Strictures on the Review of Dr. Spring's Dissertation on the Means of Regeneration. Nathanial W. Taylor replied with Review of Dr. Tyler's Strictures upon an Article in the Christian Spectator. Tyler then replied to Taylor with our pamphlet. "The objections which I have urged against the scheme of the Reviewer, are not to my mind satisfactorily obviated. It still appears to me to involve principles of dangerous tendency--principles tending to sap the foundation of the doctrines of grace:--although I do not believe that he will ever adopt as his own belief, the consequences to which his principles lead, yet I do seriously fear, that he is preparing the way for the gradual influx of error upon the American churches, disastrous to the interests of evangelical religion"--p.v.
