Publication
Note
  • The first publication in the United States openly directed against the Christian religion. Ethan Allen's authorship is called into question by G.P. Anderson in his "Who wrote 'Ethan Allen's Bible'?" (New England quarterly 10 (1937): 685-696). According to Anderson, Allen revised and published the manuscript of the recently deceased Thomas Young (1732-1777), with whom he may have discussed some of the contents some years earlier. The greater part of the edition was destroyed by fire in the printing office; according to Anderson "Out of fifteen hundred copies printed, it is doubtful if as many as one hundred escaped destruction." - With a half-title
