Sermons and Other Discourses with Brief Biographical Hints

New York: S.W. Green, 1860. First Edition. Collected sermons and addresses by the abolitionist reformer Beriah Green (1794-1874). Green began his career as a professor of religious literature at Western Reserve College, though his adamant opposition to slavery would curtail his tenure at that institution, which he left around 1825 in order become the president of the Oneida Institute. He would also be a founding father and president of the American Anti-Slavery Society. See "Appleton's Cyclopædia of American Biography," Vol. 2, p. 742, citing a Utica, 1833, edition of "Sermons and Other Discourses," though a search in OCLC finds no such edition catalogued. Octavo (19cm.); publisher's tan blind-embossed cloth, gilt-lettered spine, yellow glazed endpapers; [4],556pp. Dampstaining quite badly affecting last few leaves of text, endpapers, and rear cover, bottom edge of rear cover slightly exposed, spine gilt faded. Good and complete overall.
