London: A. Millar, 1754. Third Edition, corrected and enlarged (the first edition with the Settlement of Bishops in America). 8vo, contemporary calf, gilt spine, good copy with some very old neat leather patching to edgs of boards and parts of joints, contents very good, owner's initialed inscription from 1788 on flyleaf, pages a bit toned, occasional foxing and occasional waterstain tide-mark to margins, generally a handsome copy, rare in commerce. (39) 271 (1) including errata. Johnson (1696-1772), not to be confused with the English author, was a major American educator and intellectual, friendly with Ben Franklin and James Madison and the founding president of King's College, which would become Columbia University in NY. American editions of this book were printed by Franklin. Heavily influenced by Berkeley, Johnson was a key figure of the American Enlightenment in philosophy and education. This book, printing for the first time the Letter on the Settlement of Bishops in America, warrants a citation in Howes' US-Iana. Good. Item #H11037
