Signed Jonathan Edwards Sale at Dust & Ashes Publications

I just received the following email from Dust & Ashes Publications and want to help spread the news.


Jonathan Edwards autographs are exceptionally rare on the market. Without being melodramatic, this really is an exceptional opportunity for a quality personal collector or institutional collection to pick up one of the most desirable Christian collectibles extant.

Sold individually, we are offering two volumes from Humphrey Prideaux's Old and New Testament History.

Volume 1 is signed by Jonathan Edwards over the frontis, additionally by Samuel Hopkins on the ffep. Very finely bound in sympathetic new best calf.

Volume 2 is signed by Jonathan Edwards and Samuel Hopkins both over the frontis. Again, very finely bound in sympathetic new best calf.

Provenance: Jonathan Edwards, to Samuel Hopkins, to Rev. Otis Thompson (follower of Hopkins and editor of an important Hopkinsian periodical), to Fred Richardson, to Rev. E. C. Bolles, minister and abolitionist in Salem, Mass, to Forbes Library with a late 19th century note of provenance. Deaccessioned from the same.

Detailed images and price available upon request. Priced well-below the going rate for Edwards autograph material on consignment from one of our private collectors.
