The life of Mahommed founder of the religion of Islam, and of the empire of the Saracens ... First Canada edition

Niagara: Henry Chapman, publisher - Samuel Heron, printer, 1831. 8vo, pp. 121 [i.e. 112]; wrappers perished; small hole in the title page not affecting any letterpress, and with a few chips at the fore-edge; all else very good. A New York edition published by Harper & Bros. preceeded this by a year. This is the author's first book and the first American biography of Islam's founder, Mahommed. Bush, a graduate of Dartmouth and a student of theology at Princeton, was a Presbyterian missionary and later a professor of Hebrew and oriental literature at New York University. In 1845 he embraced Swedenborgianism and went on to write many defenses of his new faith. He translated and published the diary of Emanuel Swedenborg in 1845, and became editor of the New Church Repository. Item #54615
