Comment: A complete set of five books containing facsimile reprints by various atheists from 1708 to 1893 all uniformly bound in red hardback bindings with gilt lettering at spines. Covers very firm, bright and clean with no bumps, snags or splits. Contents equally clean and seemingly unread, apart from vol. 1, which shows a few pages lightly pencilled with margin notes, and vol. 5, which has a creased endpaper. Note: this set is from philosopher David Pailin's collection; thus each book bears his personal bookplate at the pastedown. Titles are as follows... Volume 1: An Answer to Mr Clark's Third Defence of his Letter to Mr Dodwell (by Anthony Collins) and: A Discourse of Free-thinking (by Anthony Collins); Volume 2: Tetradymus (by John Toland) and: A Philosophical Dissertation upon Death (by Albert Radicati); Volume 3: Answer to Dr Priestley's Letters to a Philosophical Unbeliever (by Matthew Turner & William Hammon) and: An Investigation of the Essence of the Deity (by Scepticus Britannicus) and: The Necessity of Atheism (by Percy B. Shelley) and: A Refutation of Deism (by Percy B. Shelley); Volume 4: Janus on Sion (by George Ensor) and: An Analysis of the Influence of Natural Religion (by Jeremy Bentham and George Grote) and: To Mr. R. Carlile, Dorchester Gaol (by John Stuart Mill) and Paley Refuted in his own Words (by George Holyoake) and Superstition Unveiled (by Charles Southwell); Volume 5: On the Nature and the Existence of God (by Annie Besant) and: A Plea for Atheism (by Charles Bradlaugh) and Doubts in Dialogue (by Charles Bradlaugh) and: Flowers of Freethought (by George W. Foote). A hard to come by set in much better than very good condition.
