American Bibliography, Vol. 2 free pdf Excerpt from American Bibliography, Vol. 2: A Chronological Dictionary of All Book Pamphlets and Periodical In the twenty years of literary production in the United States of America, of which this second volume of the American Bibliography is a record, the printing-press has also become established in the Provinces of Virginia and South Carolina, and a literature in the German language has become an integral part of our own. With the spread of printing into the Provinces south of New England the literary record assumes a broader outlook. It becomes freer, more outspoken, discussion of public questions takes a wider sweep, and the purely literary is more cultivated. With the flow of emigration and immigration property rights and boundaries become more jealously guarded, and vulgar competition in society and politics becomes a marked feature of American life: New York, always the stormy petrel of American political life, leading in this. The prevailing tone of literary production is still dominantly religious, but more and more variant from the uniform sentiment which pervaded the first volume. Massachusetts is still true to its early teachers, and the sermon still remains the most authentic revelation we possess of the mind and heart, the learning and intellectual energy of New England. Here and there are individual cases of rebellion from the fixed government and discipline of the church, but the heavy hand of council or synod, or the earnest pleading of his brethren brings the erring brother to his knees, as in the case of James Davenport- or he finds the service of his Master more congenial elsewhere, as the eminent ability of Jonathan Edwards was lost to Massachusetts. It was a period of unrest in churches, a revival of religious feeling outside of them, and is strongly marked by the assertion of the right of laymembers in the offices of the church. In Connecticut the missionaries of the Church of England were actively and controversially pro)agating their faith from that vantage-ground. New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland and the Carolinas were free to them, and Virginia, where severe penalties were enacted against Ioravians, New-Lights and Methodists, was already their own. Owing to sectarian and provincial bigotries, the Dutch Church in New York never assumed the proportions in literary production that the importance of their early colonization would seem to have warranted. How much the general average of intelligence in the Colony entered into this, for the representatives of the church were men of high ability, can only be conjectured, but one historian of the period is authority for the statement that in 1745 there were only fifteen men of academical training in the Province. The church record of New Jersey, in this period, is mainly the printed writings of the brothers Gilbert and John Tennent, the former being compared by his contemporaries to George Whitefield in the eloquence and power of his preaching.
