[Baldwin, Thomas]. A Brief Account of the late Revivals of Religion in a number of towns in the New-England States, and also in Nova Scotia. Extracted chiefly from letters written by several gentlemen of unquestionable veracity. To which is added, A very interesting Letter, from a Minister in London to his Friend in Massachusetts. Boston: Manning & Loring, Sept, 1799.

Removed, disbound, 4 1/2 x 7 1/2, 24 pp., quarter-sized stain in the margin of the last leaf. Good. Pamphlet.  [3790] 

ESTC W2804; Evans 35139; Roberts 260. "A highly useful and informative piece."

The pamphlet when through 10 printings between May, 1799, and January, 1800. It began with 8 pp. in the first issue and included 28 pp. by the last printing. It is rare in any edition, with the last auction record being from 2004, where the last issue of 1800 brought $956. There are no auction or sale records for this Sept, 1799 issue. Roberts records three holdings: American Antiquarian Society, Library of Congress, and New York Public Library.

Attributed by Evans to Rev. Thomas Baldwin.

Thomas Baldwin, D.D. (1753-1826), Baptist minister. He served several terms in the New Hampshire State Legislature, was pastor of a church at Canaan, N.H. In 1790 he accepted the call of a Baptist church in Boston and his subsequent preaching there was the occasion of a revival which lasted for two years, in which 70 members were added to the church. In 1794 he received the degree of Master of Arts from Brown University; and in 1803, the degree of Doctor of Divinity from Union College. He was active in his pastoral work as well as busy with missionary endeavors.
