Volume I, No. 1, January 1828 (pp1-7) issue of this periodical explained the reason for a new magazine: "It has for some time past appeared exceedingly desirable, that there should be Published in Boston a periodical work, in which that portion of the community, usually denominated orthodox, can easily and frequently express those view of truth and duty, which, after a full and fair examination, are judged to be of great importance. At present, although there are several respectable religious magazines in our country, none of them can be made to accomplish all the beneficial ends which the interest of the church now require. After serious and prayerful deliberation, therefore, it has been determined to establish an new magazine." The editor continues saying the Spirit of the Pilgrims is being established in the spirit of the Theological Magazine of New York in 1797 and The Connecticut Evangelical Magazine not long after. Speaking of the Unitarians, the editor states: "Again; it is undeniable, that a large portion of the community has been totally deceived, in regard to the doctrines and preaching of

Seven-shape Shape-note Tunebook, 1851


AIKIN, JESSE B. The Christian Minstrel: A New System of Musical Notation; With a Collection of Psalm Tunes, Anthems, and Chants, Selected from the Most Popular Works in Europe in America. Designed for the Use of Churches, Singing-Schools, and Societies. By J. B. Aikin. Twentieth Edition. Philadelphia, T. K. Collins, Jr., ; E. C. & J. Biddle; T. K. & P. G. Collins. Lancaster, Judd & Murray. New York, H. Long. Boston, Fetridge & Co.. Cincinnati, D. Anderson. Columbus, S. N. Whiting & Huntington. Wheeling, Va., John Fisher. 1851. Oblong 9½ x 5¾ inches. $175.00

Aikin's Christian Minstrel (Phila, 1846) was the second but first successful attempt to substitute 7 shapes for the traditional 4 shape fasola hymnals. It "endured for decades and went into as many as 171 editions. Aikin's choice of simple elementary forms for his three additional note-heads has been shown to be fortunate by the fact that his shapes are used today by all the seven-shape rural song-book publishers in the South and have been the standard notation in that territory for over fifty years. ...In Aikin's Preface he stated clearly his hopes that his book would supplant the `trashy publications' which had up to that time, `supplied the churches, especially of the South and West...' He also hoped that his new notation would swell the numbers of those who could read music easily. He explained that he had reduced the varieties of musical measure to three, two-two, three-two, and six-four time; that he had excluded the minor scale from consideration in his rudiments as an unnatural, impractical, confusing, and really non-existent phase of music; that he had but one sort of clef for all four parts, one that has G in the middle (third line) of the staff; and that he had expressed the key of the tune by words and not by symbols."--Jackson: White Spirituals in the Southern Uplands, p.320-21.

Bound black morocco spine with printed paper over boards, printed paper heavily worn & rubbed, large portions of it worn away especially on rear cover, crease in front cover, foxing, pencil notes and scribbling on endpapers.

The Old Fashion Farmer's Motives for Leaving the Church of England, and Embracing the Roman Catholic Faith, and His Reasons for Adhering to the Same: Together with an explanation of some particular points, misrepresented by those of a different persuasion.

He is know for having appraised Jefferson's library for Congress and for transporting the 6000+ books from Monticello to Washington. He was also somewhat of a skilled binder as Jefferson praises his binding in his letters. A somewhat scarce imprint. Concerning the book we are offering, the anonymous author states in 'The Author's Advertisement:' "And my reasons for now presenting this to the public, are first, to prevent people from being imposed upon by false notions concerning my conversion. Secondly, to shew that I became a Roman Catholic upon no other motive than from a thorough conviction of the truth of what that Church teaches; and that after a mature deliberation and strict scrutiny into the most substantial points of doctrine, especially those that seem to clash most with sense, and man's natural inclination, not from any particular pique, or temporal interest. And thirdly, to make it appear the Roman Catholics are by no means such abominable, idolatrous, wicked wretches, as some roaring Protestant preachers, and authors, represent them."

This work was edited by Bernard de Montfaucon 1655-1741, French scholar and critic. He was called to Paris in 1687 to work on editions of Athanasius and Chrysostom. "Athanasius Opera Omnia, still the best edition of that Father, was issued with a biography and critical notes in 1698."--Ency. Britannica, 11th ed., 18:780. "The monumental edition of the works of St. Athanasius on which he laboured with Dom Pouget and Dom Lopin, appeared in 1698 and was well received (3 vols., folio, Paris, reproduced in P.G., XXV-XXVIII)... The thoroughly scientific bent of Montfaucon's mind led him to elaborate a new auxiliary science out of the studies he had made for the verification of his Greek texts... Montfaucon was the father of Greek palæography, the principles of which he established by the rigour of his method in grouping his personal observations."--Catholic Ency. (c1911) X:540.

Athanasius, bishop of Alexandria (circa 296-373) "By his refusal to compromise with Arianism, he incurred the enmity of the powerful Arianizing party in the reigns of Constantine and Constantius." During his turbulent career he was deposed and banished 5 times. "Before c.318, while still in his twenties, he wrote two short treatises, the second of them the famous `De Incarnatione'...As bishop he was the greatest and most consistent theological opponent of Arianism. From 339 to 359 he wrote a series of works in defence of the faith proclaimed at Nicaea--viz. the true deity of God the Son--both meeting the Arians in theological controversy and exposing the tricks of their ecclesiastical politics. From about 361 onwards he especially sought the reconciliation of the large semi-Arian party to the Nicene term homoousios (`of one substance'), which they were reluctant to accept. The Council of Alexandria (362), under his direction, greatly furthered this end... He was also concerned to uphold the deity of the Holy Spirit and the full manhood of Christ against Macedonian and Apollinarian tendencies. As the friend of the monks Pachomius and Serapion, and the biographer of Antony, he aided the ascetic movement in Egypt and he was the first to introduce knowledge of monasticism to the West. His resolute character as well as his theology was the outstanding obstacle to the triumph of Arianism in the East."--Cross: Oxford Dict. Christian Church, p99.

Bacon, Francis, Viscount St Albans (1561-1626) "British philosopher, statesman and early advocate of the scientific method. He was also an important essayist. Successively attorney-general, lord keeper and lord chancellor, he was forced to resign his offices in 1621 when found guilty of corruption. None of this interrupted his efforts to break the hold of Aristotelian logic and establish an inductive empiricism."--"Bacon, Francis, Viscount St Albans." World Encyclopedia. 2005. Encyclopedia.com. 26 Jan. 2015 . "Bacon's contribution to philosophy was his application of the inductive method of modern science. He urged full investigation in all cases, avoiding theories based on insufficient data.... Today his contributions are regarded with considerable respect."--"Bacon, Francis (English philosopher and statesman)." The Columbia Encyclopedia, 6th ed.. 2014. Encyclopedia.com. 26 Jan. 2015 . "Two main strands can be distinguished in Bacon's impact on the Western philosophical tradition. First, his theory of scientific method in general, and induction in particular, was much commented on in subsequent epistemological debate. Second, and more important, Bacon's impact on Western philosophy is to be found in the ideological part of his philosophy--the active ethos with which he infused modern science."

"During his last years Bacon composed his utopia, the New Atlantis, and a natural historical work entitled Sylva sylvarum, meaning a collection of collections, a miscellany of subjects. It is a vast compilation of one thousand paragraphs consisting of extracts from many books and Bacon's own experiments and observations. The New Atlantis is a description of an island society and its scientific community: Salomon's House. In it Bacon developed ideas which he had outlined thirty years earlier in the early 1590s. The aim of the Salomon's House was nothing less than `the knowledge of Causes, and secret motions of things; and the enlarging of the bounds of Human Empire, to the effecting of all things possible' (Works, 3.156).... The Sylva sylvarum and the New Atlantis were posthumously published in the same volume in 1626."--Markku Peltonen, `Bacon, Francis, Viscount St Alban (1561-1626)', Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, Oxford University Press, 2004; online edn, Oct 2007 [http://www.oxforddnb.com/view/article/990, accessed 26 Jan 2015]

"He was full of enthusiasm for the Great Awakening, and for the New Light theology inaugurated by Jonathan Edwards, which had been the occasion of the revival, since it enabled the preacher to call men to repentance, as the older Calvinism had not. In this vein he preached with fervor, cogency, and success, first to his own parish, and from 1742 on, from place to place in and around Connecticut for part of the year, during several years... Settling down at the close of the revival he bagan writing in defense of this new theology... Young men came to him to study for the ministry, and a sort of theological seminary grew up in this tiny backwwods settlement... He was a striking example of bold independent thinking in early New England."--Dictionary of American Biography, II:165. We offer the First Edition of his An Essay on the Nature and Glory of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. A few quotes from the book: "Section VI. Vindictive Justice an amiable Perfection the Diety; a Beauty in the Divine Character. Vindictive Justice is that Perfection in the Divine Nature, whereby God is inclined to punish Sin according to it's Desert...God's giving his Son to die in our Stead, to redeem us from the Curse of the Law, as led some to think, that God is not inclinded to punish Sinc according to it's Desert: whereas his Inclination to punish Sin according to it's Desert, induced him to give his Son to die in our Stead."--p.95. "Section XI. The Nature of Divine Illumination... To see the Holy Beauty of God's moral Character, to see the Beauty of Holiness, to have Holiness appear beautiful and seem lovely to the Soul, is of the same Nature as to love Holiness; but to love Holiness, is Holiness it self."--pp.201, 205-206.

With a handsome folding map of ancient Israel, 21.5 x 48.5cm. Tears repaired with archival rag paper. It is placed between pages 162 & 163 in the final pagination, following the alphabetical key to the map and just before Hiller's 5 page commentary on the map.

Five versions in parallel columns. Only one German version of the N.T. Apocrypha. The Jewish version of the Old Testament is by Josef Witzenhausen, rather than Athias--see the British Museum Catalog & the Jewish Encyclopedia article on Athias. Darlow & Moule ##4227, "This edition of the whole Bible embodies four principal German versions, viz. those of Ulenberg (Catholic), Luther, Piscator (Reformed) and Athias-Reitz."

Johann Otto Glüsing, the editor and compiler of the Biblia Pentalpa, was also the editor of Jakob Böhme's works and the founder of the ascetic 'Angelbrothers' society. "Glüsing was a key part of a group of separatists and spiritualists who gathered in Altona (a hotbed of Spinozists, Mennonites, radical Pietists and Jews) in the early years of the eighteenth century. The Biblia Pentapla represented, for Glüsing, an entirely new direction for the German Bible... Because, in Glüsing's words, 'different German translators...have different dialects,' the Biblia Pentapla would provide all Germans with access to all the all the translations... The side-by-side placement of representative biblical texts was to serve, then, both as an ecumenical bridge between readers, giving them a common language of religions, and a means to unify a Bible divide by centuries of confessional strife... On the one hand, the Biblia Pentapla--like the venerable scholarly tradition of the polyglot Bible--used techniques of accumulation to weave a web fine enough to capture God's Word. As such, it was linked with the formal conventions of biblical scholarship as it developed in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries (though unlike the Complutensian or Walton's English Polyglot, the Biblia Pentapla was, to my knowledge, the first attempt to put this scholarly practice entirely into the vernacular domain). On the other hand, the Biblia Pentapla offered a passage to God opened by a single translator--Johann Heinrich Reitz--who, with washed hands and baptized by the Holy Spirit, presented humanity the exact essence of His Word. Reitz's translation guaranteed this access through its fidelity to the original manuscripts. It was a formal effort to re-create in their perfection the original manuscripts of the Bible, and more specifically the New Testament, by an obsessive insistence on literal translation. I will call these two different methods scholarly and linguistic objectivism. Both methods were key to the radical Pietist project to replace theology--long monopolized by orthodoxy--with a text whose meaning was perfectly reproduced for the reader. The history of the post-theological Bible and, indeed, the Enlightenment Bible more generally must therefore start here, at the far fringes of the radical religious underground inhabiting the early eighteenth century."

"The year 1703 was a bad one for orthodox guardians of the Luther Bible. 'I can easily imagine that it will not please everyone,' Caspar Triller laconically commented, and indeed his 1703 New Testament translation pleased almost no one... And 1703's second irritant--the New Testament of Johann Heinrich Reitz, featured translator of Glüsing's Biblia Pentapla--fared no better. Orthodox theologians accused the new translator of a swarm of more or less mortal heresies. Indifferentism, naturalism, fanaticism, Socinianism, Arianism, Nestorianism, acephalism, crypto-calvinism: the list went on. The invective was fierce, but the threat was apparently real. For Triller and Reitz represented the nightmare of orthodoxy: the latter once a follower of Pietists Theodor Untereyck and Philip Spener, now a confirmed spiritualist... And if Triller's work fell onto largely deaf ears, Reitz's was received with applause, at least in some circles, and went through at least four editions by 1738, much to the dismay of the Leipzig book commission."--Jonathan Sheehan: The Enlightment Bible: Translation, Scholarship, Culture. pp.62-65.

We are pleased to offer the New Testament volume of the Biblia Pentapla. It also contains the N.T. Apocrypha in just one translation, which is followed by the Reitz's 3 page "Erläuterungen."

Matthaeus Christoph Pfaff(1686-1760) successor to Jager as chancellor at the Univ. of Tübingen. He was pietistic in "both his understanding of theological method and of the purpose of theology... Pfaff was at least intellectually on the side of the developing Pietistic Movement and for that reason helped to make the Stift at Tübingen its theological center."--Stoeffler: Ger. Piet., pp.93-94. This work known as Pfaffischen Bibelwerks, is Luther's translation, prefaces & comments, and with "new prefaces, summaries, extended parallels, comments and spiritual applications, also prayers at each chapter...edited under the direction of Chr. M. Pfaff." We offer the New Testament volumes (vols 7 & 8) of the larger work of 9 vols (index v.9). The New Testament volumes were edited by Joh. Chr. Klemmen.
