This final chapter explains how several printers, booksellers, and editors in America, Britain, and the Netherlands collaborated to reprint several of Edwards’s books and publish such posthumous works as A History of the Work of Redemption in 1774. Whereas during Edwards’s lifetime and into the 1760s the printing, publishing, and editing of his works had largely been performed by three men—Samuel Kneeland, Daniel Henchman, and Thomas Foxcroft—in the last three decades of the eighteenth century, a new generation of printers, booksellers, and editors, including William Gordon, John Erskine, Charles De Coetlogon, Jonathan Edwards Jr., John Ryland Jr., David Austin, Cornelius Davis, and Robert Hodge, emerged to take on these duties. The people involved with reprinting and publishing Edwards’s books in the last decades of the eighteenth century had various reasons for doing so that included interests in evangelism, Calvinism, and millennialism.
