Providence: printed for the trustees of O[badiah] Brown's Benevolent Fund [by] H. H. Brown, 25 Market-Square, 1834. First edition, 8vo, pp. 24; original drab wrappers with an 1834 Burriville, R.I. gift inscription on the front wrapper; very good. First published in the United States in Philadelphia, 1786. A thriving Quaker population in Rhode Island likely accounts for the publication of this edition, paid for by the Obadiah Brown Fund, which was founded in Providence in 1823 by bequest of Obadiah Brown "to be a fund, independent of New England Yearly Meeting, to enhance the Religious Society of Friends through grants to individuals and Friends organizations, and specifically for 'the printing and disseminating of useful books for the promulgation of the gospel and by that means, as well as, otherwise spreading our Religious Principals where they are little known'.” Obadiah Brown was the son of Moses Brown, the founder of the Quaker School in Rhode Island (i.e. Moses Brown), and the nephew of John Brown, founder of Brown University. The original bequest from Brown was $100,000, said to be the largest single bequest to an institution of learning up to that time. The Obadiah Brown Fund exists to this day. Item #56149
