First Edition. Softcover. Good. 7 x 4.5 inches, 260 pp, in original printed wrappers. Moderate soiling to front cover, which is chipped at the lower cover; significant staining to back cover, some loss to backstrip. Text itself quite clean, tightly bound. An explication of Swedenborgian theology, described in an 1880 review in The Sunday School Helper as "very readable for all who would make themselves acquainted with the doctrines of the great Swedish Seer, Emanuel Swedenborg. Many of his writings are formidable to the general reader, but this statment of his opinions in the language of Dr. Ellis is very agreeable, and to the theological student, entertaining." Ellis (b. 1815) was a well-known homeopathic physician and author of the popular text Family Homeopathy (1864). He practiced in his home state of Michigan for several decades before moving New York in 1862 to accept a position at the Homeopathic Medical College for Women.
