Cranston, 1824-6. 4to, pp. [4], 208; [4], 208; contemporary quarter sheep over paper covered boards; binding split into 2 loose segments, vol. 1 no. 48 loose, upper cover loose, text clean, good. Through the pro-Universalist Christian telescope Pickering sought to "emancipate the human mind" from "the unreasonable dogmas of the church," and sought to do so by argument and rationality. As such, it was critical of the more emotional arguments of grace found in some Restorationist camps. Among the theological articles are local notices of marriage and death, and advertisements from the printer. A total of 4 volumes were published. Not in the Union List of American Newspapers. Scarce.
