Asplund, John. Richmond: Virginia: Printed by John Dixon--for the author., M, DCC, XCIV. 
An extremely rare early Baptist publication from Richmond, Virginia, with Revolutionary War ties. Original boards detached with spine leather perished, the boards tied together at the top with a sinew loop, as shown, the leaves also toed with sinew in three places, rendering them bound in a crude, homely fashion. Contains only "A confession of faith, put forth by the elders and brethren of many congregations of Christians (baptised upon profession of their faith) in London and the country. ... First printed at London, 1688." The American Antiquarian Society copy has bound with it "A summary of church dicipline [sic] ... By the Baptist Association, in Charleston, South-Carolina. Richmond: Printed by John Dixon, M, DCC, XCIV." (Evans 26759), perhaps intended as the second part of the present work, but it is not present here.
The work is identified by the running title: The confession of faith of the London Assembly. Calls for (2) vi, (2) 50; our copy with only 3-50 present. The boards and some laid in leaves from another work are signed by a Francis Tuthill, a New York Revolutionary War veteran, see below. The Tuthill family was a prominent Suffolk and Orange County, NY family with ties to the Brewster family of the same region (ie., Caleb Brewster of Washington's Culper Spy Ring fame). Additional signature of William Stone. Measures 6.5" x 4". A true rarity with amazing American provenance; no physical copies found anywhere!
