Robert FLEMING (b. 1630, St. Bathens, nr. Dunbar ƒ?? d. 1694, London) The Fulfilling of the Scripture. Or an essay ... ith a preface by Mr. Foxcroft, Pastor to the First Church in Boston.

Robert FLEMING (b. 1630, St. Bathens, nr. Dunbar – d. 1694, London).


The Fulfilling of the Scripture. Or an essay shewing the exact accomplishment of the word of God, in his works performed and to be performed. For confirming of believers, and convincing atheists of the present time: containing some rare histories of the works and servant of God in the Church of Scotland. By the Reverend Mr. Robert Fleming, late Pastor of a church in Rotterdam. With a preface by Mr. Foxcroft, Pastor to the First Church in Boston. Boston: Printed by Rogers & Fowle, for Nathaniel Proctor at the Bible and Dove in Ann Street, near the Draw Bridge, 1743. 12mo (6 ¼ x 3 ½ inches; 158 x 89mm).  Pp. xxiv, xii, 522. Collation: aƒ? 2aƒ? bƒ? B-V¹² W¹² X¹² Y¹²(-Y10, Y11 and Y12, as usual?) (L3, L5 missigned M3, M5, overall toning [as usual?], some foremargins close-shaved touching a few characters).


Contemporary American leather binding, covers simply decorated with rules and a single repeated cornerpiece tool in blind (scuffed and quite dry, spine chipped at head and foot, corners rubbed).


Provenance: possibly Charles Haig (partially erased inscription to verso of title ‘Pr.[ice] 1:4:0 / [Charles Haig] / His Book. / Bought: 1744: January ye 12”); Thomas Jones (inscription dated ‘Janry: 27. 1748/9’) Mary Jones (inscription, dated 1779, noting that the book had been in her ‘father’s library’)


First US edition, one of two issues – no priority given?


A Boston production of an influential Calvinist work: edited and with a preface by Rev. Thomas Foxcroft (1690-1769), printed by Gamaliel Rogers (1704-1775), and Daniel Fowle (1715-1787). There are two issues, reflecting the fact that the work was offered by two publishers: Walter McAlpine and Nathanael Proctor. The present example is the ‘Proctor issue’.  The first edition [Wing F1266] was published in Amsterdam in 1671.


Proctor issue: ESTC W12282 (15 examples, none in the UK); Evans, 5185; Singerman. Judaica Americana 0026 (‘see, principally, the prophecy about “the Incalling of the Jews, and their conversion to Christ” on pp. 338-41.’)


McAlpine issue: Cf. ESTC W19467 (13 examples, including 1 in the National Library of Scotland); Bristol, B1208; Shipton & Mooney, 40303.
