The 18th century was a wealth of knowledge, exploration and rapidly growing technology and expanding record-keeping made possible by advances in the printing press. In its determination to preserve the century of revolution, Gale initiated a revolution of its own: digitization of epic proportions to preserve these invaluable works in the largest archive of its kind. Now for the first time these high-quality digital copies of original 18th century manuscripts are available in print, making them highly accessible to libraries, undergraduate students, and independent scholars.
The Age of Enlightenment profoundly enriched religious and philosophical understanding and continues to influence present-day thinking. Works collected here include masterpieces by David Hume, Immanuel Kant, and Jean-Jacques Rousseau, as well as religious sermons and moral debates on the issues of the day, such as the slave trade. The Age of Reason saw conflict between Protestantism and Catholicism transformed into one between faith and logic -- a debate that continues in the twenty-first century.

A reissue in 5 vols. of the 3 vol. 1785 large paper edition, with an altered titlepage, with a different setting of the last leaf of the 'Editor's preface' and without contents leaves in any vol. The titlepage in each vol. is the same, with the vol. number missing. The Apocrypha includes 3 Maccabbees. The notes are apparently taken from Wilson's 'Abstracts from the historical part of the Old Testament' and other writings. The preliminaries include a list of the editions of the Bible from 1526. With a 7-page list of subscribers.
