THE MORALITY OF THE EAST; EXTRACTED FROM THE KORAN OF MOHAMMED, DIGEST (Used)
by Koran) Tela, Josephus, ed
Book ID: 8179, 8179
Reprinted From the Edition of 1766, and Edited byÉ London: Printed for the Proprietor, J. Souter 1818, contemporary gilt ruled tan calf, 180+31pp, front board off, spine worn, very scarce. Bound with THE POLITICAL MISCHIEFS OF POPERYÉ by "A Person of Quality", 1818, and APPENDIX TO THE PRESENT EDITIONÉ by J. Toland, and: A CATALOGUE OF THE MOST EMINENTLY VENERABLE RELICS OF THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH, all with their own title page, the last separately paginated. This anti-Catholic collection is a real wonder to read. The editor claims that he "is a professed friend of all religious sects, and of the whole human race, whether Pagans, Jews, Christians, or MohometansÉ" He spares his vitriol for the excesses of Catholicism, and is clearly a follower of the "original church" of Rome. The 'Catalogue of Relics' is a partial catalogue of what the church sold off in 1753 by order of the Pope. They include the Ark of the Covenant; St. Joseph's axe; several drops of Christ's blood; the table at which the last supper was held; and some of the money that was paid to Judas, (!). The first part of this collection includes many translations from the Koran

The book s language has eluded deciphe...More
