'A collection of sermons delivered by the Rector of Enham, Hampshire, and late Fellow of Queen’s College.
First published in 1743, Seed's sermons were admired by Samuel Johnson for their 'very fine style' and are described by Allibone as 'among the most elegant productions of the British press, both with respect to their diction and imagery . . . abounding in sound argument and in just remarks on human life’.
