No other prints listed. ; The Rev. Theodore Parker (1810-1860) would seem tame by today's standards but in his day was the most radical of the very radical Unitarian preachers. A social reformer, theologian, abolitionist, peace activist and more, he preached the famous 'Transient and Permanent in Christianity' in 1841 and was originator of two famous quotes: 'Of all the people, by all the people, for all the people,' made famous by Abraham Lincoln, and, 'The arc of the universe is long but it bends towards justice,' quoted by the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. ; Exteriors show normal wear. Endpapers lightly foxed. Main defects: Vol-1 pale dampstain visible at upper tip throughout. Both vols: antique book label on front endpaper, with name and 1855 in pen-and-ink. Everything readable. Both bindings tight. Quite scarce.
