Lorenzo Dow (d. 1834) was an intinerant American evalgelist during the Great Awakening period. He was rather an eccentric but his preaching was extremely popular everywhere but in the South (he was a staunch abolitionist) and his autobiogarphy was at one time the second only to the Bible in sales in the United States. He was in fact so popular that the 1850 census shows "Lorenzo" as one of the most popular first names. Very Good Hardcover (Item ID: ZE17945)
