Swedenborgianism... of Johnny Appleseed fame...

Item # 701566

December 03, 1858

NEW YORK TIMES, Dec. 3, 1858  Page 2 has: "RELIGIOUS HISTORY - Chronicles of Religious Sects in the United States". This is the 34rd installment in the series with a focus on Swedenborgianism which were based on the doctrines of Emanuel Swedenborg. The article is lengthy taking 2 1/2 columns and provides details of their founding and beliefs. Quite interesting. Note: Johnny Appleseed (not mentioned in the article) was a Swedenborgian evangelist/missionary. See photos for details.
Other news of the day is found throughout. 
Complete in 8 pages, a small chip missing from the article which only impacts a few words, archival mends to the reverse side of the key content, but otherwise in good condition.

Item from Catalog 341 (released for April, 2024)
