The Pilgrim's Progress

£150.00

Product description

Sub title "from this world to that which is to come. Delivered under the similitude of a dream wherein is discovered the manner of his setting out, his dangerous journey and safe arrival at the desired country."
Two parts bound in a single volume. Part 1 197 pages and Part 2 177. Part 1 has 10 engraved plates and Part 2 three; there is a frontispiece of the author. William Mason provides an introduction and substantially more copious annotations to the second book. There was a fold out map immediately preceding the first volume but, unfortunately, this has been torn along the fold and the outer fold is missing; only the ragged edge remains as evidence of the full map.
Vallance and Simmons of Cheapside were the printers in 1778. The boards have patterned paper with edge wear and there is a cloth cover to the spine with gilt lettering on the upper third with the name. Binding good. Generalised slight tanning. Occasional marks on the text. There is an undated extract of Cowper's Review of schools in ink on one of the ffep and an owner's name on the next page with the date Nov 23 1807 - although the year is difficult to decipher accurately.
Sad about that map, but otherwise a very nice book
