Lot Details
PENN, WILLIAM. 1644-1718.
The Sandy Foundation Shaken: or, Those so Generally Believed and Applauded Doctines ... Refuted. London: [John Darby], 1668.
4to (180 x 140 mm). A-D4 E2. Disbound. Custom case. Title soiled, wormholes at lower edge touching a few letters and repaired on A1 through B4 with tape.

FIRST EDITION, written by the 23-year-old Penn; his third work, published in the same year as his first.
In the early 1660s Penn had studied at the protestant academy of Saumur, and in 1667 he attended a Quaker meeting in Cork, after which he was brought before a magistrate for being part of what was termed a "riotous and tumultuary assembly." The Sandy Foundation Shaken emerged from Penn's doubts on the Trinity and tested the grounds for the rejection of the divinity of Christ (ODNB). Soon after its publication, both he and his printer were briefly jailed in the Tower of London. Wing P1356.
