Descripción

First English Edition, 12mo (160 x 95mm), [2], vi, [3]-110, [4]pp., contemporary ownership inscriptions in ink on front and back fly-leaves, contemporary sheep, rebacked, gilt lettering on spine, overall a very good copy. Brainerd was a missionary to the American Indians in New York, New Jersey, and eastern Pennsylvania. Born in Connecticut in 1718, he was tubercular, dying of that disease at the age of twenty-nine, and from his youth was frail and sickly. He was expelled from Yale for criticising a professor and for sympathising with the Whitefield revival organisation known as "New Lights". He became a missionary beginning his ministry with the Indians in April, 1743, at Kaunaumeek, New York, and then in Crossweeksung and Cranberry (near Newark), New Jersey. After only four years as a missionary Brainerd died at the home of Jonathan Edwards, to whose daughter he was engaged to be married. "His ministry to the Indians was contemporary with Wesley, Whitefield and Edwards as they ministered to the English-speaking people during the period called in English and American history, the 'Great Awakening.' Brainerd's centuries-spanning influence for revival is positive proof God can and will use any vessel, no matter how fragile and frail, .". - Barlow, Profiles in Evangelism. Sabin, 7339; Howes, B717; Felcone, 24. N° de ref. de la librería 31032
