Title: Some Thoughts Concerning the Proofs of a Future State, From Reason. Occasioned by a Discourse Of the Revd. Mr. Joseph Hallett, junr. on the same Subject.
Description: London: Printed for R. Hett..., and J. Gray..., 1730. FIRST EDITION. 8vo, pp. xvi, 211 [212 blank], contemporary calf, gilt border on covers. A fine copy, with an exceptionally clean text. Inscribed on the leaf before the title-page, "To/ Thomas Welman Esq/ from his most oblig'd/ humble Servt/ the Author". As it happens, Grove also inscribed a copy (now in a private collection) for Welman's wife. Grove (1684 - 1738), a Presbyterian divine, was also tutor at Taunton Academy. The work is a reply to a book by Joseph Hallet (?1692 - 1744) entitled An Essay on the Nature and Use of Miracles: design'd against the Assertion, that They are no Proper Proof of a Divine Mission. To which is prefix'd, An Answer to some Other Objections against Reveled [sic] Religion contain'd in a Late Book, intitled, Christianity as old as the Creation (1730). Hallet had argued that a future existence could not be proved by reason and that heathens would be punished eternally. Grove prefers to argue that heathens will be annihilated, or separated permanently from God. ESTC locates 6 copies in North America: DLC, ICN, MH-AH, NcD, NjR, NNUT, UPB
