Near fine in recent blue-gray cloth with gilt and red calf title to spine and original gray wrappers bound in. Edmonton: William Muir, 1886. Near fine in recent blue-gray cloth with gilt and red calf title to spine and original gray wrappers bound in. Bookplate of Joseph Holland on front cover and library marker of Moncure Biddle Library fixed to inside rear cover. Copy No. 11 of 50.Includes “ All Religions are One”, and Muir's own version of the missing plate b5. Essick notes: There is No Natural Religion. The "Preface," dated 1886, indicates that the facsimile is based on plates "in the British Museum [copy A] and from some papers in my own possession [copy L]." However, the printed front wrapper of Muir's Europe facsimile (1887) indicates that "Mr. Burt's copy [H?--which, according to Joseph Viscomi, is a forgery]" was also used. This would seem to be correct since copies A and L are printed in olive and green, whereas plates a1, a2, and b1 in the facsimile are in brown, as in copy H. Also includes plate 2 of All Religions are One, the original of which is bound into There is No Natural Religion copy M, and Muir's own version of the missing plate b5. Delivered to Quaritch 8 Sept. 1886. Note: There is No Natural Religion copy M also printed in brown, but it seems unlikely that this was "Mr. Burt's copy" since copy M was in the Tulk family collection until 1956.” Bentley, BB, 249 G. copy No. 11 of 50.
