Lessons from the world of matter and the world of man

Boston: Charles W. Slack, 1865. 8vo, pp. xi, [3], 15-430; portrait frontispiece, title page printed in red and black; original full brown cloth, gilt title on spine; spine rubbed and top of spine cracked; frontispiece foxed, the occasional spotting in text, front hinge cracked at title page; but largely clean and good. Parker (1810-60) was a controversial Unitarian minister in Boston who knew twenty languages, and was friends with Bronson Alcott, Emerson, and Channing. "The sermons of this religious genius have lost none of their kindling power and claim the attention of students of religious experience. The theological views which disturbed his contemporaries have become characteristic of their descendants … Through the mediation of William H. Herndon he influenced Abraham Lincoln who probably derived from him the formula 'government of the people, by the people, for the people' (see Chadwick)" (DAB). [58763]. Item #58763
