First edition of Wesley’s sermon preached at the funeral of fellow founder of Methodism, Reverend George Whitefield. Octavo, bound in contemporary calf with gilt ruling and title to the front panel. One of the three founders of the Methodist movement along with John and Charles Wesley, Whitefield gained widespread recognition during his 1740 journey to North American where he preached a series of revivals that became part of the “Great Awakening.” He preached nearly 20,000 sermons throughout his ministry, enthralling large audiences with a potent combination of drama and rhetoric. In very good condition.
