1 Greene, William B. Batchelder. The Incarnation. A Letter to Rev. John Fiske, D.D.

West Brookfield, Mass: Published by the Author, 1848. Cover title, 52 pp. A presentation copy: "O.A. Brownson Esq. with the Respects of the Author." William Batchelder Greene "was zealous, eccentric, ambitious, and mystical, and very interesting in conversation....He was well known to most of the transcendentalists, though his extreme views were not acceptable to most of them." (Cooke, Journal of Speculative Philosophy, July, 1885). He married Anna Blake Shaw, daughter of Francis Gould Shaw of West Roxbury, who supported transcendentalist causes. Anna was a friend of Theodore Parker, which apparently made Parker's wife unhappy and caused Parker and Greene to mistrust each other. He went to West Point and the Harvard Divinity School, was pastor at a Unitarian chuch in Brookfield, Mass., contributed to "The Dial", promoted mutualism and associationism, women's suffrage and abolition, was eventually called a communist, and today is studied by some as an early American anarchist. At the time of this open letter, Greene looked to Brownson as a mentor. As Brownson’s radical views moderated, Greene’s became more extreme, and the student surpassed the master. Light soil and wear. An old vertical crease. Small stamp of the New York State Library. A Very Good copy.
