    Thayer, Nathaniel: A SERMON, PREACHED AT THE INSTALLATION OF THE REVEREND WILLIAM EMERSON, TO THE PASTORAL CARE OF THE FIRST CHURCH IN BOSTON, ON THE 16TH OF OCTOBER, 1799. Boston: 1799. 30pp, disbound, no half title. Minor foxing. Very Good. The father of Ralph Waldo Emerson "commanded in the pulpit a fluent but slightly formal eloquence, the unimpassioned correctness of which was characteristic of an already dying culture...When he died, at the age of forty-two, he had left a distinct mark on the literary, charitable, and educational life of Boston." DAB. FIRST EDITION. Evans 36409.
