by Galloway, Joseph.
London: Printed for the Author; and Sold by Hatchard, Piccadilly, and Rivingtons, St. Paul’s Churchyard, 1802. 8vo, viii, (i), xv, 475 pp. Contemporary full blue straight-grained morocco, covers ruled in gilt and decoratively rolled in blind, gilt backstrip with raised bands, gilt turn-ins, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers, ribbon bookmark. (Probably a presentation binding for the author’s copies.) Leather a little scuffed, corners lightly bumped and worn, internally clean and crisp. Armorial bookplate of Sir Charles William Cuffe Burton (1823–1902, the last in a line of Burton baronets of Pollacton, County of Carlow, Ireland). Inscribed by “the Author” to Elizabeth Roberts, possibly his daughter Elizabeth who married William Roberts in London in 1793. A late, religious work by the colonial statesman and British loyalist Joseph Galloway (1731-1803). Galloway was a friend of Benjamin Franklin, a fellow officer of the Provincial Assembly of Pennsylvania, and a member of the Continental Congress. For almost twenty years he fought for a compromise government that would provide “adequate representation” for American subjects while preserving British sovereignty. In 1778 he was evacuated to New York with other loyalists before settling in England. He spent his later years studying biblical prophecy. This work correlates the events described in Revelations with recent history including the French Revolution. Not common in institutions or at auction. (Inventory #: 105535)
