Remarks on the science of history; followed by an a priori autobiography

Boston: Wm. Crosby and H. P. Nicols, 1849. First edition, 12mo, pp. xi, [1], 13-164; wood-engraved vignette illustration on title page; title a little dusty, otherwise fine in 13 unbound, uncut, and unopened duodecimo gatherings. "The materials requisite for the construction of the 'Remarks' and 'Autobiography' ... may be found in the works of Jacob Boehme, Fabre d'Olivet and P.J.B. Buchez. The author takes, therefore, this opportunity to protest against being identified, in the mind of any reader, with the hero of the supposed Autobiography." William Batchelder Greene (1829-1878) was, per Wiki, "a 19th-century individualist anarchist, Unitarian minister, soldier and promoter of free banking in the United States." Sabin 69504. Item #54627
