Three Essays on Religion. Nature, The Utility of Religion, and Theism.

London: Longmans, Green, Reader, and Dyer, 1874. [Theism] FIRST EDITION. Octavo (23 x 15cm), pp.xi; [3]; 258; [2] list of author's works. Publisher's binding of green pebble-grained cloth, gilt titles and rules to spine, black rules to spine and boards, brown coated endpapers. Contemporary ownership to flyleaf, later ownership inscription to corner of half-title page. Textblock bright and clean with just the occasional negligible mark. Textblock a little shaken with a central gather standing slightly proud. Endpapers split along the gutters but with the binding unaffected. Cloth rubbed to extremities, more so to corners, joints and spine ends, a few marks and scuffs to cloth. An attractive example of an important work. Very good. Published posthumously, this is seen as Mill's most sustained analysis of religious belief. Item #51414
