New York: Charles Scribner, 1871. First American edition. Original orange cloth, gilt-lettered on the front, decorated in blind, 47 pp. Froude had a knack for enraging Catholic and Church of England theologians - this essay is a good example. "The author (of Calvinism, Froude) says, in plain terms, that it is not more criminal in a Calvinist to burn a witch than for any other person to invite a spirit-rapper to dinner" (J.G. Meline, in "Catholic World", v.13, 1871), and "I know nothing to be compared to Mr. Froude's ecclesiastical bitterness" (Thomas Mozley, "Reminiscences, Chiefly of....the Oxford Movement", 1882, v.2). Some wear and stray marks, lots of ticks and underlinings by a former owner. A Good, sound copy.
Title: Calvinism: An Address Delivered at St. Andrews, March 17, 1871.
