    John Gemmill. A SERMON, DELIVERED AT THE ORDINATION OF THE REV. JOHN N. ABEEL, A.M. AS A COLLEGIATE MINISTER... Philadelphia: Printed by William Young, Bookseller, 1795. First edition. 25, [1]pp. Dbd. Lightly foxed and tanned. Very Good.
    The most interesting aspect of this very scarce piece is not the sermon, which explains to Rev. Abeel the attributes of a a good minister, but the publisher's advertisement at the end. It advises of Young's forthcoming issuance of 'Letters of Certain Jews to Monsieur Voltaire. Containing an Apology for Their Own People, and for the Old Testament...In Two Volumes.' Young promises it "speedily will be published."

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
