Collected sermons by Doctor Joseph Lathrop (1731-1820), long-time Pastor at First Congregational Church, West Springfield, Massachusetts.  First published in 1807, the first three volumes sold out, leading to this, the Second Edition.  In his preface, the author alludes to the preparation of a further volume of Occasional Sermons.  Published in 1812, that volume is labelled "6" in the present set.  Doctor Lathrop was a popular preacher, and his sermons have long been highly commented upon both in this country and in Europe.
