Christian Politics In Four Parts

Edition: First Edition

London: Longman, Hurst, Rees, and Orme, 1806. First edition. Half brown leather with black labels to the spine. Marbled boards. Title, advert & preface. The work is in four parts. (1) Containing a view of civil government in its influence on virtue and happiness, chiefly from the relation it bears to liberty and property. (2) On the importance of Religion, both to society and the individual, with reflections on Religious establishments and toleration. (3) On the Conduct of the good citizen, particularly under any moderate government. (4) On the way to live happily under all governments, and in all situations. Bates was previously the author of "A cursory view of Civil Government." This current work is an expansion of that first. He advocated that government protect liberty and property, the importance of toleration and of being a good Christian. Being a good citizen led to being a good Christian and vice versa. The emphasis on Toleration is particularly pertinent, given how soon after the French Revolution this text was written. xvi, 445 (1) pp.,

Condition: The boards and spine are clean, but there is a little rubbing to the spine, with a closed tear to the top edge of the spine. Inside, the book is clean and tidy throughout. The text block is bright and there is minimal darkening. Overall a nice copy.
