Thomas Kerns:
The Arcana of Nature: or Proofs of the Being and Attributes of God, elicited in a Brief Survey of the Works of Creation. Two volumes in one.

Dublin: Thomas Tegg, 1846. Reprint. xix, [3], 316; (v)-xi, [1], 382: decorative blue endpapers with publishers' advertisements. The author has some difficulty with himself (as he did with his critics) in his tortuous attempt to reconcile the recent discoveries of Geology with his adherence to the Biblical account of origins, but is convinced that 'the sacred records have nothing to fear from advancing science'. Some foxing found at Vol I p.99 and adjacent pages, contents otherwise very clean. Octavo, in the original binding of red blind-stamped cloth, rebacked, with the original gilt pictorial spine laid down, and new hinges. Negligible soiling to cloth: a very nice bright, firm copy. Very Good+.
