Not illustrated. 1748 edition. Excerpt: ...away an eff'ential Pollution, he may do this, and more! Shame on the Philofophy of a Newton, who could never teach us how to deftroy, or confecrate away the EJJence of Things: Had he confulted fome of our modern Divinity Jugglers, what Wonders might he not have done?
