This treatise is subtitled "An Essay, Shewing the Exact Accomplishment of the Word of God in His Works Performed and to be Performed," intended to confirm believers and convince atheists.  The volume here for sale is a scarce copy of the 1806 Charlestown (Boston) edition. 

The text is taken from the 1743 Boston edition with a preface by the Rev. Thomas Foxcroft.  By 1743 this treatise had appeared in multiple editions, always anonymously.  Foxcroft, making use of testimony that dated back to 1693, was the first to attribute authorship to Robert Fleming.  In the Scottish Reformed Church, this was seemingly a text in constant demand.

Printed and sold by Samuel Etheridge of Charlestown, Mass.  Also for sale by Etheridge and E. Bliss at their bookstore in Boston. 

AS IS! Please see photos. More photos available upon request.
