'Of the NATURE & IMMORTALITY of HUMANE SOULES The first Part which supposeth what is written in my Reasons of the Christian Religion; & My More Reasons for it: By Richard Baxter with a Postscript, considering some passages in Dr Willis his Learned Tractate de Anima Brutorum, quæ Hominis vitalis et sensitiva est ‘Augustine de Quantitate Animae’.
This work is different from the author’s published treatise Of the immortality of man’s soul and the nature of it, and other spirits(London, 1682, octavo) in DWL. His own former publications mentioned above came out in 1667, quarto and 1672, duodecimo. This Ms appears to be the work thus mentioned in his Autobiography ‘oft conferences with the Lord Chief Justice Hale, put those cases into my mind, which occasioned the writing of another small piece of the nature and immortality of the soul, by way of question and answer. Now printed’ (Rel. iii. 61).
