Two pages, cr. 8vo, bifolium, segment cut from bifoliate leaf, no obvious loss, fair condition, text clear and complete. "I called to enquire after the notice & took the liberty of sending you {last phrase insert] about the lectures I am now giving at the London Institution - & was surprised to hear that the Editor of the literary Gazette considers the subject perfectly exhausted - For I have the honour to tell you the view I now take of the origin of polytheism-worship- of animals - Mythology & Idolatry is quite new - for it traces the whole to the original coptic words or names by which the hieroglyphics ["were" excised] exhibiting the different applications of the power of the Supreme Being were termed - as far as I know no one ever went as far- tho' perhaps from Bacon to our time may authors have surmised that this might [underlined] be the case, but never any one has shown that this was [underlined] the case.-I hope therefore that the Editor will have the goodness to look over my paper once more - & favour me with inserting it in the next number. Note: Spineto's "Elements of Hieroglyphics and Egyptian Antiquities in a Course of Lectures delivered at the Royal Institution . . ." was published in 1829 by Colburn. N° de ref. de la librería 9873
