We announce, with peculiar satis. faction, an American edition of the complete works of that eminent divine, and excellent man, President EDWARDS, in eight octavo volumes, by Isaiah Thomas, junr. under the ed. itorial superintendance of the Rev. Dr. Austin, of Worcester.
The editor of the English edition of these works, gives the following opinion of them: “ Although we do not consider ourselves responsible for every sentiment of the author, whose works we publish, we will nevertheless freely acknowledge, that were we to assume any such responsibility, or were we disposed to hold up the writings of any fallible man, as form ing our standard of faith, we should not hesitate to give our most decided preference to EDWARDS and Owen. In these authors we see the sound. est principles united with the most fervent charity."
