A Bio-Bibliographic Account of Two Rare Zenger Imprints and the Published Sermons of Theodorus Jacobus Frelinghuysen, Minister of the Raritan Churches

Victor Hugo Paltsits


The purpose of this study is to describe technically a very rare collection of two sermons in Dutch printed at New York by John Peter Zenger in 1729, and also by him in 1731 in an English translation, extended to five sermons, both of which are possessed by the University's Library. In further elucidation biographical sketches are presented of the three persons concerned —author, translator, and printer; also a check-list of Domine Frelinghuysen's sermons that are known to have been printed.
